1984 Huffy Stu Thomsen

My very 1st childhood BMX ride

I remember seeing these bikes on TV commercials when I was a kid. My folks bought me one for my 8/9th birthday. I rode it everywhere and even started to learn freestyle on one. I ended up destroying that bike. Fast forward 20 something years later and I find another one at the OS BMX meet. I never thought I would want another one of these, but after 2 hours of debating w/ myself, I came home w/ it.
Updates:(7/22/12)
I pretty much changed every part of this bike to make it fit me better and for reliability...lol I took it out on a group beach ride last night and it was so much fun to ride. I think it`s probably the most comfortable of all my bikes,to ride at the beach. I was surprised that it turned a few heads...smile Yes.. I kept the kickstand....

It was my first bmx bike too. I had a chrome/black one. Loved it! Nice grab.


I'm always very quick to leave feedback. Please be nice and do the same. Strength is in numbers...
