Just bought my first 80s BMX bike...

Well I own a Peugeot Pipeline 1, but I don't count that cause it's a 26incher,

so, I went into a local used bike shop today, and saw it listed for $120, talked him down to $90.

Just ordered some new tires and tubes. Nothing special, but I am excited to ride this bike!

Those disgusting tires thrown away! The cleaning begins as I await parts in the mail...

Going to add both my bikes to the museum soon...

I believe it is a 1987 Ross Piranha based on this entry: http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/ross/29360

Frame is identical as far as I can tell.

Killer! I need to get one of these myself.. This was the first real bmx that I had, it only had front brakes and I ended up going over the handlebars downhill and chipping my two front teeth as a kid! big_smile

Nice   For your 1st score
