Earlier today bmxsociety.com hosted its third annual Old School BMX Reunion and Show at the Bellflower BMX track just outside of Long Beach, California. Hundreds of old school bikes were on display and a bunch of legendary riders and industry heads were there hanging out, riding, and enjoying the afternoon. Look below fo our photos from the jam sessions and sidehack races and click on page two of this article for more than 40 photos of the bikes.
A look down the bike alley. It was just as packed (if not more) all afternoon long.
In addition to the bikes on display and in the show, lots of people had old school parts for sale, too.
And of course there were literally several hundred bikes on to look at. Click page two of this article to see 40 of them...

This thing was pretty funny. It was a life-sized doll of Mike Dominguez airing a quarter.
Eddie Fiola doing a backflip flyout. He may be old school, but the man still has it...
Daniel Sandivol has been all over the place lately and destroyed the box jump today.
No BMX gathering would be complete without a handful of flatland riders in the mix. Lalo Jiminez gettin'r done.
Ride's own Keith Mulligan brough out his old pro jersey from his Cycle Craft days for the sidehack race and proceeded to kick some ass on the track.
Former AA Pro Robbie Miranda as pilot, and Keith Mulligan (also former A Pro) as monkey. They won the sidehack race even though people like Jim Bauer and Steven Campbell (shown) and DJ Greyboy and DJ Truly Odd all put up a good fight.
Andy Shohara blasting a classic table out of the quarter pipe.
Texas' Tazz Hernandez has been staying in Cali for the past two months or so. He made it out to the event and spent a bunch of time on his bike over the box jump and on the track, too.
Eddie Fiola; downside fastplant.

Daniel Sandivol; superwhip.
Lawrence Warrell is no stranger to sessioning this box jump as he does shows with Dan Hubbard's stunt team on a regular basis. Big ole' lofty superwhip.
Shit, I'm so new school... I forgot this guy's name, and I shold know it. Shame on me.
Daniel Sandivol; inverted 360.
