Re: What bikes have you owned?

1st bike I remember having had solid rubber wheels. Flattened em out with powerslides and kickouts. Last bike I had was a Boss.
And absolutlety every mid/high end BMX inbetween. Wish Id held onto anyone of them. Would make my new "hobby" alot easier.
(and cheaper)

Re: What bikes have you owned?

Good lord, you guys had some decent rides.

So did I though... Hutch. 1983 Expert Racer with Shimano DX cranks; you don't see those often, a 1984 Hutch Pro-Star brand new showroom example, 1985 Trick Star, all hutch parts, all chrome, every piece possible. (really, it was the Pro Star with a new TS f&f) 1986 Trick Star with ?? parts. All gone now. Except the Aero-Speed BB cups and bearings for some reason. Still have those.

Now, a Gary Fisher I just posted on another thread here somewhere.

Re: What bikes have you owned?

What mean u by "failure bike"?...as in a Sh!tbox from way back or just a defunct company type thingummy whatsit?

Gee's guys theres a hell of a lot of history here!
After a damn long run in BMX from the dim dark ages when a BMX bike was a Dragster with a set of handlebars with a low crossbar painted the customary Matt Black and a seat off a 10 speed racer and a small rock or twig jammed in the gear mech of the 3 speed hub..... to around the 1992 period i rode BMX with a passion and in doing so came across and owned a few bikes BTW for the record: they owned me as much as i owned them....so i am finding out now in the later years LMAO...anyway i'll

list what i can noting that i not only do not own most of them now i can only wish i did!

1 Dragster(was a.......dark Knight, black knight, black horse...i dunno was a dragster for gods sake...this is BMX not ruddy Retro big_smile) converted to BMX the "OldSkool way" the good old moto cross low crossbar handlebars painted matt black and the double clamp gooseneck and a set of Tange squeeze bottom forks(bulletproof at the time)forks.

1 Cheap frame (unknown manufacture)built up from parts salvaged from the dragster and bought otherwise.

1Pro Cobra Frame (Toowoomba Bicycle Co i believe) Built up with Tange squeeze tube(dunno what they where origionally called) forks and other assorted goodies, KKT Lightning pedals, sugino alloy 3 piece cranks, MX2 gooseneck and so-on.

1 Cobra MXIII(Toowoomba Bicycle Co i believe) an obvious copy of Redlines by then famous frame design.

1 Redline MXII with a set of Araya 7X rims, an origional Redline doubleclamp gn and a few other niceteys bought from a seconhand shop in poor condition and rebuilt lovingly then converted to freestyle bike...then sold for next in list..

1 Haro FST the first of the Haro bikes sold in the shop in my home town Bourkes Bikes.Taree, NSW, Australia, 2 friends and myself laybyed them together and had them only days apart from new we where in a freestyle team called "missing Link Freestyle" LOL.

1 Haro Sport bought from a secondhand dealer the flipdown pegs are all that remain with me as i had to sell it at an inopportune time.

1 Redline RL20II...the history is awesome on this one...almost a fairytale in a sense considering i got it brand new.....lost it after
around 3 yrs of owning it only to get it back 7 years ago...theres a good 9 years around abouts of grey area as to what it went thru and all but it's back where it belongs now and won't be goin anywhere again with out me smile

1 Redline RL20....again with the fairytale BS ROFL another story..... given if wanted but my fingers are gettin tired here.....
