The Jeff Spicoli look, Japanesse bandanas worn on the thigh, Phoebe Cates and Boone's "Tickle Pink".

And every day when I put on my socks the KKT tattoos on my shins take me back.

Anything flourescent
Cassette mix tapes

I had a pair of green Chuck Taylors that I painted flourescent orange leopard spots on. I was so friggin' cool!

And whoever said boom boxes, there was always one guy in the group that didn't have many skills so he would be the one carrying the boom box on his handlebars. smile

Re: Stuff that reminds you of 80's Freestyle

Hardware store modifications.

Early on only a few kids could afford a new freestyle bike, so you would modify your bmx. And if you couldn't afford the bike, chances were pretty good that you couldn't afford freestyle add-on parts either. I remember going to the local hardware store and buying 1.5 inch threaded spacer nuts to use as pegs. And someone was always trying to drill out a stem bolt in middle school shop class.
