1984 Aero Reflex

1984 Aero Reflex

Aero Reflex built from NOS parts with custom decals

Recently purchased this bike from ebay following an urge to relive my childhood interest in BMX.  I would still like to restore a Mongoose/Supergoose but haven't found the right one yet.  Never really liked the Aeros because of the red decals but this beauty came with custom black and white ones, which meant a chrome and black colour scheme would work.  Hope you agree!  Built entirely from NOS parts but not all period specific although most sympathetic to the 80s.

1984 frame & forks, GT piston stem, win pro bars, ame tri grips, dia-compe tech 77 brake levers, dia compe bull dog callipers, elina ultra lite seat & post, odyssey seat clamp, GT power series one piece crank, bear trap type pedals, tioga sealed bottom bracket, bear trap 2 headset, tuff neck powerdisc & sugino chainring, izumi chain, 20" skyway tuff wheels with kenda whitewall tyres, custom made aero reflex decals, aero pads, dice dust caps and cable crimps and protective clear frame stickers.

Frame now sold.

Re: 1984 Aero Reflex

A great example of the '84 Aero Reflex!
The black and chrome colourway definitely has a classy feel to it but has still kept true to the aesthetic of many BMX models of that time including Torker, Haro Master and Diamond Back Silver streak to name but a few.

Looking forward to your next project!

Re: 1984 Aero Reflex

Thanks for the positive feedback.  Clearly someone with great taste.  Next project will probably be a Mongoose California 1983/84 if I can find one for the right price.  You mention the Diamond Back Silver Streak which brings back some memories although I always thought the frame size was slightly smaller than normal BMXs, so probably not suitable for a slightly overweight, six foot, forty something!

Re: 1984 Aero Reflex

Very nice build...I have only ever had Chrome framed BMX's since my very first true BMX...a second hand Patterson Racing Pro 200 with a blue on chrome theme followed by a GT Pro Series Black on chrome.
This ones a really nice looking build Mrbilton. I'm putting together a few right now my self...all 80's...a Zeronine Pro XL, Norco Starfire ZL, Norco Spitfire & a 90's black GT Pro Series! It's fun and time consuming getting back into this...sure shows how much free time we had when we were young and free. Now with families and jobs our time is a valuable commodity!! Can't wait to see your next project I too love the mongooses of the day!


Norco, Patterson and Zeronine's are my thang!
