The backyard starting gate .
My daughter loves it but my 4 yr old son would rather ride up and jump off the back end of the gate.
I have a very funny feeling I'll be building a ramp in the near future. hmm

Backyard half-pipe from BITD. Wish I had some better pictures of it (I think my brother might have some). It was 8' high and 8' wide. Built around 1985 or 86. Probably the only one in northern Ohio at the time.

The skateparks today amaze me. Can't imagine having facilities like that when I was 16...

That's Alex the older child, I think this was about 11 foot gap, My younger son Zach has done an 18 foot gap. He keeps pushing it farther and farther. They get pulled into the driveway or put on the lawn when not being used.

Re: RAMPS, Gates, Half pipes, Lets see what you built for BMX

We built a couple ramps for our bike restoration program and bible study at the youth center I run in Alaska.  The kids helped make them and we are going to build a few more to take to the paved ice rink in the summer.  They learn a lot and I get to play like it's 1985 again cool

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person--though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die-- but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

then I built my first 1/2 8 foot high and 8 foot wide
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v293/bongo870/skate/ramp5_zps2412a389.jpg

then I bought another one off a kid and put them together and built my first half
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v293/bongo870/skate/ramp6_zps0025fec5.jpg

then I had to move it yet again so i cut it down to make it easy for me to learn how to skate
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v293/bongo870/skate/ramp7_zpsd948f4ff.jpg

then when i learned how to skate i gave up on bikes and built this for skating 12 feet wide and 7 feet high with a 8 foor extention
http://smg.photobucket.com/user/bongo87 … b.jpg.html

after many years township got word of it back in there woods and that came down and i built my 16 foot wide and 8 foot high half (my last one)

Re: RAMPS, Gates, Half pipes, Lets see what you built for BMX

The Ridge! Was in Freestylin magazines a few times, where Woody picked up Mitch Collins for a sponsor, and it`s where gaijin and I rode whe we were young. Many long days into the night sometimes into the next morning thanks to the street light we mounted in between tongue Two halfpipes, one 8' tall the other 10' tall!

10' out on the big ramp, probably 1987.
