Re: You Guys Gotta See This,...

The first pic is now my desktop background, sick. I have quite a few of these 30's and 40's cruisers, a couple I have Redline 3-Piece cranks in set up as bmx cruisers. This very well could have been the dawning of a new era, even way back then. Awesome stuff.

Re: You Guys Gotta See This,...

Those kids must have been flat out hauling a$$ on those old cruisers. That incline on the other side must have been pretty intimidating on those old bikes for them to be getting enough speed to still catch air up the other side! It looks like one deep old gulch.

No way...his facial expression says, "I got this".   lol


I think the coolest thing about those pictures are all the people watching those guys do it.  Not to make assumptions, but it looks like there were probably parents in the background watching their kids jump their bikes.  Very cool.

Re: You Guys Gotta See This,...

It's definately the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Looks like one heck of a show, Life magazine was there, cool old cars and motorcycles, these guys were livin the dream. Cool to know kids on bikes will always want to catch some air, even way back in the day.cool

The kid in the first pic probably had a full time job in a cotton mill, 5 children and a drinking problem.
