Midwest Freestyle Series PHOTO'S STORIES COMMENTS - BMX Freestyle 80's

Just wanted to thank all the riders and volunteers who participated in the MFS Bicycle Freestyle held in Minnesota at Park Schwinn, East St. Paul Armory and other locations. The internet is great for this kind of get-together so I'll keep it short.

If you have any pictures or comments you would like to add with 80's bmx and Freestyle or with the MFS contest. Please add them here! I know a few of you who are keeping up on the old schoolers!

The 80's were just awesome.....

The rider is none other....Ron Horwath...local legend in the St. Paul area. That spelled right?

Good to see you up this early Brian!! Can you post videos here or just cut and paste from tube?

Wherever the wife will let me!!  lol

I've got 3-4 in parts now, a few have sold, but I have about 5-6 completes sitting around, mostly in the basement.  I'm slowly running out of room with a baby on the way!  lol

Keep them coming.  I didn't know Minnesota was big into freestyle until I went to a Bully show at a bike shop on White Bear Ave.  There were 100+ kids and their bikes.  That was a great.

I was at that show as well. Probably was the last show I saw for many years. That was Park Schwinn on White Bear, right.
I don't have any pics, but I also remember seeing the MFS team "open" for a Haro show there as well.

Thank, just starting to find old school pics- going to be uploading more here and on my old school website. The 80's feel like yesterday but if you look at the clothing and hair you realize it is called old school for a reason! hahaha

Here is one from the ST. Paul Civic Center during a local district bmx race in Minnesota. Dale Matson rider, Todd Miska on platform!

Going through some old school videos and found some MFS bmx - Midwest Freestyle Footage from 85-86 from the contest in Coon Rapids, MN. Uploading some rider runs from ground and ramp. I'll list some here.

Here is John Mulhouse flatland run
