Rare BMX on TV !!!!

I have found a new way to keep bmx in my life besides collecting just bikes. I have been finding old tv shows that have bmx bikes or topics in them, for instance check out Drake and Josh's garage on Nickleodian, they have an old freestyle bike in their garage, looks like a dyno, also I just downloaded the Chips BMX episode, all kinds of old Jag and Panda stuff, I could mention E.T. but I wont, check out Pretty in Pink, or the Spaggetti'o's feed the beast commercials, this may sound a bit silly but I think it's really fun to spot those old schools on the tube!

Re: Rare BMX on TV !!!!

2 and a half man have a blue new-school huffy in the driveway and most rear deck scenes.

we play this game at the prelude forms im a member at.

the game is to post where you saw a prelude.. tv, news, movies, etc.
its kinda fun seeing them here and there and when a movie is mentioned
with the time you see it, its neat to go back and see it yourself.

Re: Rare BMX on TV !!!!

there is an old bmx bike in the halls of Astro-Base Go !
looks like a rampar or something.

the astro base Go tour is on the venture brothers DVD

and there is a commercial out now and one scene has a old guy fixing his sons (grandsons?) bike.
it looks like a hemi or maybe some other specialized... flyboy or something .. the bike is back lit
so you can only see its outline ...shrug...

Re: Rare BMX on TV !!!!

The old McDonalds commercials had BMX bikes all the time. Some racing scenes and some freestyle later in the 80's. The first time I saw Eddie Fiola's black bike I nearly fell over, which was on a McDonalds commercial.... I think.

Re: Rare BMX on TV !!!!

I remember not that long ago a commercial with a kid working at a convenience store with an SE jersey on. i think it was in the 90s. Just recently there was a action movie where the star rode a new school bike on a table. I cant remember the movie but I slow moed it to try and read the decal but couldn't I thought it was a Kuwahara. and dont forget Gumo Though that movie will probably never be shown on tv.

Re: Rare BMX on TV !!!!

Hi Guys
I am in Western Australia and can remember about 1980 Malvern Star briefly had a BMX ad on Aussie TV with a pretty cool song [I wanna ba a star....na na nana... A BMX star....na na nana.... my legs are pumpin power.. my tires bite the track... I wanna be a star...etc]
I copped it all the time coz I had a supermax. Couldn't go anywhere without hearing someone sing it AT me.
Does anyone know where that footage may be found? You tube doesn't seem to have it.
It should be found and played on BMX Museum homepage! - or maybe not.
It was very cool. Anybody know where to find?
