What are your plans for 2013?

Planning on slimming the herd?
More Hoarding?
What do you plan to build?
Any shows you plan to go to?
What else?

I've got some initial ideas of what I'd like to do.

Year to year, I fluctuate between the idea of focusing on my Haro collection, and branching out with other brands..  2013, I've got the Haro bug.

I'll probably sell a few of my "off" brand bikes, and acquire these:

1984 Haro Sport (any gen)
1986-1987 Haro Group 1 RS1
1992 Haro Master

Now that my son is starting to ride a little more, I'm really thinking about building up a 22" S&M Holmes.  We'll see on that one.

Probably going to make a few trips:

Philly Ride
Society Show in CA

I'll also be visiting a few cities for work, so I'll be lookin to have some beers!

Boston - yeah buddy!
St Pete
New Orleans
San Fran

What do the rest of you have going on in 2013?

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Since I got some experience riding the skate park with my eastern, my goal this next year is to learn how they did it back in the day with old school bikes. I built a rider condition 85 sport for just this purpose. I hope I don't hurt it too bad, or me for that matter! Going to use the skyway mags as well.  cool

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Ride a minimum of 3X weekly, not buy any more bikes or parts.

All of my bars look Chicago'd, but actually are not.  (maybe a little...)    I have a bunch of 70's Star Wars stuff and tons of vinyl LP's for trade/sale too.

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

About done building scoots-maybe 2 more unless I find something really cool.  Will still look for hard to find Profile stuff but that's it-will move onto my other hobbies.  Time to start the train layout and do other things.

MADE in the USA-still number 1

Would like a PRO FIT Stem and PROFILE Freestyle bars that look like BUFF bars.  Also want to buy an early bar-less PROFILE frame-without the crossbar.

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Sell a majority of my bmx collection. Keep a few to ride.  Finish off my '56 F-100 truck and start on a '65 vette that I recently aquired.

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Definetly ride more, I've got 4 GT Performers that I want to build, '87, '88, '91, and '08, if I get 2 done this year I'll be very happy,  this year I became a dad, so sleep and in turn riding and building time was in short supply.

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Always setting a goal to ride more. Winter here really slows me down too near the mountains.

Been thinking about opening a little bike shop in the city. Since I live near the mountains, we get a lot of bmx, road, and mtn/all terrain bikes.

Who knows. Josh

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Finish up my 2010 Quad the way I want it. It has been my main rider but instead of just riding it and building on my other bikes I keep upgrading it and trying to build my other bikes...not good chip lol

Complete my Skyway 24

Start on my 1995 Redline PL24 project. Going to retro it like my 1984 Pro-Styler that I had BITD...should be fun

Old School BMX bike collecting is a hobby and New School Retro BMX bike riding is a hobby. Respect the part of the hobby I enjoy and I'll promise to respect and even compliment the part of the hobby you enjoy. Disrespect what I like and I'll disrespect you...simple enough right?

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

In 2013 I'm going to be hitting quite a few USA BMX Nationals, and keeping the bikes dialed for the Midwest Gunslingers bike shop team and trophy team.  I want to finish my 78 Powerlite 26".  Things I need (want) to buy are a Park Tool euro bottom bracket chasing and facing tool, headtube reaming and facing tool, and a nice bearing press for hubs.  Those 3 tools will cost me about $800.00.  I will be a mobile BMX repair shop at that point.

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

I plan on doing a lot of riding on my new skyway. Gotta work off all those beer calories I put on over the winter hibernation.

Re: What are your plans for 2013?

Still collect and flatland even harder for 2013!  And lastly,  to finally ride out of a hurricane smoothly and flow into another trick.
