That's a tough question because of it's ambiguoity. Stunting has been around since motorcycles have been around. Stunting as we know it today probably started with guys like AC Farias and Gary Rothwell.

the only thing i know about gary rothwell is that nobody here likes to watch him anymore, just because he has a bike made up just for stunting, everybody likes to watch the real life bikes like the starboyz or d-aces

I can't say who started the whole thing but to my knowledge it kinda goes like this. Rothwell made stunting popular and kinda kicked off the whole it's cool to do stunts on motorcylces image. Then the Starboyz came along, bitchslapped Rothwell, knocked over his totaly modified weinercycle and started up the "It's cool to ride a 120 mph wheelie past a donut shop full of cops then go home and get some pussy" type stunting.

AC Farias and Westly Valiscoti (check spelling of last name) also helped start everything out. But I got no shit to talk on those guys cause they can actualy ride a non tricked bike.
