I started messing in the early 90's, a little after the big bubble. But I knew a few messengers in the 80's and there was a lot of talk at the time about how much money these guys made. The typical figure cited was $60k for a really good messer, including the under-the-table part, which everyone said was most of the take. The only other thing i remember about messengers back then was that everyone said Nelson Vails needed specially tailored pants (you needed TIGHT pants back then) to accommodate his definitely non-steroid induced thigh-dom.
