Mike Taylor was an am who was getting some decent coverage in the early 1990s and then disappeared around 1992. This happens a lot. I'm curious what happened to him. Was it an injury? Was he over skateboarding when the wheels got smaller? Was he a kook?
Taylor rode for Vision and G & S. I don't believe that he ever went pro, even with G & S loosing a number of riders when Alien Workshop and Birdhouse Projects started. The handwriting on the board reads "New Power Generation" and is a most likely a reference to Prince's band at the time. I say most likely because you never know sometimes.

Note: This is not the same Mikey Taylor who currently rides for Alien Workshop.
