Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

Prior to my jumoing things dasy I had a small childrens bike which was stolen the Christmas I got it.....then I had a solid tire motocross bike, that had a fake gas tank and industrial strength wheels.

But I started jumping things and riding in the dirt on a bike identical to this one.   I swapped in knobby tires, removed front fender and was going to get rid of banana seat when my dad finally bought me something more suitable

My first BMX bike was like the one below but in much better state: I removed the chain guard, added California Lite pads which I still have!  Red Comp III knock offs, Grab On grips and I think red pedals.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

Had a sorry Huffy that I had in the early '80s. My first good bike was an '85 GT Mach One. I loved that bike. I upgraded to an '87 PFT, but it was stolen, so back to the Mach One. Had Haro bars, Skyways then I traded them for Peregrine mags, ACS Rotor until it broke. Put a Gyro on it.    Had it until '90, then I joined the Navy. Mom passed away and not really sure where it went. That was my favorite bike of all time.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

First "bmx" bike was some Kent crap from Walmart sometime around 2000. First real bmx was a chrome Mosh Pro I found in the neighbors trash, got stolen about a year later from right next to my garage with 3 cars in the driveway and everyone home eating dinner mad After that found a fake Haro for $20 at a garage sale and a Dyno VFR in a trash pile down the street. Mom gave the Dyno away ("You don't need more than one bike!" neutral Fake Haro thing got sold and I got a Dyno NSX and here I am smile

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

My 1st was a Ross Snapper...not sure of the year I need to figure that out. Next was a Schwinn Predator. Sold that Frame/Fork and bought a used Redline 600a w/Landing Gear. Sold the Redline (or traded...can't recall) and bought a used SE Racing Quadangle (Reynolds...non loop...83 model I think?), then I traded that for an 1984 Redline ProStyler...which I sold for $150 complete with Redline 400's yikes

I recently bought a 1995 PL24 that I think I may somewhat recreate my ProStyler cool


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 Bike did you start BMX with

First was a red Murray bmx from around 80, then about a 82 Huffy Pro Thunder then a Redline 600a. Wish I was still 5 foot tall, I'd still be riding a 20" Bustin out nothing but 26'ers now-a-days.

Re: What Bike did you start BMX with

No kidding an '80 Robinson that I bought used for 75$ w/ Tange forks, 1 piece cranks, Z-rims and CW bars. I do not recall what happened to it tho, I bought a Proline II F/F that I mowed lawns and shoveled snow to buy. The LBS owner let me lay it away.
