Re: best memory from 70s-80s

Waiting for your buddy to get out of detention because he was the one who owned the extra long bike cable, and everyone locked their bikes together.

At our 7-11 it was Gunsmoke and Donkey Kong Jr.

Jumping our nice bikes in the river for fun. Going home and asking dad for his tube of Phil Wood waterproof grease to re-pack my bearings afterward.

If you didn't have a mullet, your sexuality was in question.


Chrome is my favorite color.

Re: best memory from 70s-80s

70's-80's huh?

I remember playing that old home version video game that had the white dot that you hit back and forth(the name escapes me right now).
Watching the cartoon version of star trek, mighty mouse, under dog, spy-vs-spy, rin-tin-tin, space 1999, airwolf, sigmond & the sea monsters, HR puff & stuff w/witchy poo.
OH! "The solid gold dancers"!
Having bunny hopping contests, and trying to see how many kids we could clear (hopping over)as we got a running start down the road without a ramp.
Having a mini track setup in the neighbors alleyway across the street from us with multiple jumps and a few burms.
Hopping on our bikes with 2 inner tubes and an airpump in our backpacks and riding over the foothills to a river and tubing down it with our bikes tied on to the 2nd tube.
Working summers for an LBS to get discounts on bike parts for my gooses I had as a kid.
Heading over to the local YMCA on race night early to check out the girls prior to racing that night on the bridged cross-over track.
That was cool!


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink
I'm also johnng23604 at "Retro-goose", "VintageBMX" & "RADbmx"
