    Default Make my BMX bike number one!

    I wanted to get in shape, so I decided to relive my youth a little. I put a want add for a bike on bmx museum, and how lucky could I get? The guy with my favorite bike contacts me, and says he would like to make a deal on it. Sounds hokey, but it s true story, i am stoked to have this bike. Long story short, I bought it, and me an the 7 year old name sake cruise the bikes in town. he loves it, and so do I!

    What I want to do, is push the bike up in the ranks on the most faved page. Here is a link, if you could, please join the site(free of course), and save it as one of you faves. I am on page one already, but want it up at the top! Bragging rights....you know. Here is a link, check out the bike, I am sure you will want to do it anyway once you check out my new bike! Besides cars of course, this is back to the top as a favorite hobby. Dare I try some of the old freestlye tricks, well see, I need to be able to go to work! Now help a brother out!

    That's awesome man. The Skyway Streetbeats are timeless. Not too long ago they found a bunch of raw streetbeat frames in a warehouse, they were all over the place. As you may know from my screen name i'm avid in old school bmx. I'm 17 and wasn't there, but those bikes were too rad. Here's my 2 bikes...



    Got a '91 Haro Ground Master and an '86 Haro F.S.T. I love those things.

    That's totally awesome and rad! (80's lingo) Check out my '86 Redline RL20. It's pretty much a garage queen but I ride it around the neighborhood occasionally and it turns some heads.

    Sweet bikes guys! I picked up that skyway as basically an NOS bike, with no intentions of letting it sit any longer. I love to storm through town on it, it is a blast. One of my best friends as a child had a chrome haro master, that was the cats meow then for sure in the freestyle world. At least it was in my town.

    I have a few bikes also. I was really into BMX freestyling in the '80s. The chrome Mongoose I found in a garbage pile. I took it home and cleaned it up real nice.........only to give it away. The red '87 Haro Group 1 I picked up for $35 on eBay. I have nos decals for it whenever I decide to restore it. The yellow '88 Haro FSX I had since new. I also have nos decals for that too, but I need to get the bike powdercoated and put it back together. The red Schwinn I believe is a Manta Ray (not Stingray). It was my bro's 1st bike. The blue nos ACS rims I found in a back room of a bike shop. I asked the owner how much, and he said $10 a rim . One rim is dated Dec. '81 and the other rim is dated Mar. '82. The Giant Mt. bike is my current rider.

    Sure its not the sight of a grown man on a BMX bike that is turning those heads?



    I was into the BMX craze of the 80s also. I had a couple of Mongoose and a really old Torker I got from a friend. Wish I still had the Torker.

    LOL! Man, that's entirely possible! But, my neighbors see me riding my mountain bike and road bike all the time too. I'm having too much fun and enjoying being alive to care anyway!

    Now THIS is my kind of thread. I had to stop riding for good (well, SERIOUS riding anyways) after having brain surgery but i still have my bike. Now i just can't risk serious head injury. I guess that would include racing but i do it anyways

    I've had just about every bike pictured in this thread if it's a 20''. I grew up on a GT Performer and moved up to a Dyno Slammer and then an S+M Dirtbike Next Generation, which i still have. I also have a Dave Mirra Signature Haro that i parted out for the S+M frame in this pic, but i've since switched it back to the Haro frame for the extra top tube length.




    I also had 3 Mongoose Decade Pro's and one Decade, a few GT Virtigo's, a Haro Master, 2 Hutch Windstyler's, a Mongoose Expert and Expert Pro...man the list goes on and on. When i was a kid i had a bike junkyard in my back yard.

    Here's one of my bikes I'm selling on Ebay right now. I am getting rid of my bikes to make room for my kid's bikes and to put the cash into my Mustang. I am keeping a 1975 Stingray thats kinda beat up because my son (bmx racer) and I are going to make a totally retro BMX bike out of it, the kind like in the beginning of "On any Sunday", before they were called actually BMX it will be cool.

    Thanks to the guys that have faved my bike, I noticed I had picked up two votes! This is turning out to be a good thread to. I figured there was a bunch of 30 somethings that could relate to my rekindled passion for BMX.

    I actually had to have a brain biopsy. The surgeon just recommended that i stay away from any potential impact to the surgery site. Either way i'm older and way out of shape now. I'd probably kill myself trying some of the gaps and crazy crap i did 10 years ago. The last time i was out and really in my prime i pulled up late to gap over this big curb/grassy drop off thing and slammed my rear tire into the curb and it flipped me over and i broke my collar bone and wrist. I was 19 and in my first apartment and that almost made me homeless because i couldn't work. That's what made me realize that i couldn't do it forever. About a year later i bought my first Mustang and it's been cars cars cars ever since.
