In 1972, Gary Turner, one of the pioneers of BMX Bicycle production, got his son Craig Turner involved in BMX racing at five years old. Lightweight BMX bikes were rare in those days. So, Gary, a machinist and welder decided to build a light race bike for his younger brother Glenn Turner and his son Craig Turner. He hand-built every frame and fork in his garage in Santa Ana, California. He was constantly changing and improving his craft. Then, Craig and Glenn started ripping it up at the local BMX tracks; naturally, everybody wanted one of his BMX frames and forks.
Bob Morales eventually left GT to focus on his own company DYNO Designs while Eddie Fiola became arguably the most famous and popular BMX personality of the 1980s until his contract was not renewed in 1987.
In 1985 GT bought BMX accessories and apparel company Dyno. Bob Morales said “GT Bicycles made an offer to buy Dyno. I accepted their offer because Dyno was severely under-capitalized and in need of investment. I negotiated a contract with GT to design bicycle frames and components and to consult on a marketing strategy for them.”
