New Guy, Sayin Hi, and Showing Off

big_smile
Hello Men,
I'm Tony. I've been playing with these toys since the early 80's. When I would actually USE my rides to get back and forth to the beach or the Arcade. Occasionally school, but more like to the Record store for the newest Quiet Riot cassette Or to ride 30 miles one way to get Van Halen tickets! and then over to Taffy's house for a "piece" of "candy"  Basically we rode wherever we wanted too. Yepp... Growing up in Indialantic in the 80's was Great!! cool

As life would have it and the need for change. I live in the mountains now and spend all of my 2 wheel fun time riding one of my many early GSXR's or Aprilia or whatever I can put gas in and flog.

But when the weather is just rite and I'm feeling the urge. I will pull out some of the old good stuff and give it a shine and remember Glory Daze...

I converted this one to "push" model some time ago. Lol.. Actually I have been looking for some skins for it. Anyone try the Duro Fantasy tires?  They have the perfect colors.  Need a rear axle too.

No sir.  I gave All of my old school rides away to younger kids back then.  Boss cruisers, Christian Hosoi skateboards among Many more, GT pro performer,  81 Mongoose Team, 80's Diamond Backs, Several Boss cruisers, etc.. etc..
When I left Fla I had no where to go and no where to keep anything. So I gave it all away to friends, family, and mostly Kids that needed something to do.  I hope those kids have grown with a passion for Anythiing OldSchool Kool like I have cool

It's an East TN native.  The Vector bars have only made it 1 county over since new. All 1 owner till I came along. We have mutual friends. He only let go because he was chasing a woman. To New Zealand!
