Name: Arthur Kourtis Hometown: Melbourne Northcote, Australia Started riding in: 1979 Number of bikes in collection: I currently have 16 what I call boutique BMXs. All of which date from '77 to '84
What was the moment for you to start collecting BMX bikes? Arthur Kourtis: I started collecting bmxs from a very young age. I’d even say for a long time I kept most of my original bikes from when I was a kid and only got rid of them in the last 12 years as I wanted to buy bikes I couldn’t afford so I’d trade up. Growing up in the northern suburbs in Melbourne our BMX was our wheels. We went everywhere on our bikes. Being of European background as a kid our parents wouldn’t let us race. So we just lived on our bikes
Is older better in your book? Arthur Kourtis: Good question. I have full respect for all eras of BMX. As I was there for all of it.
