SHADY ASS QUARTER PIPES! Built from whatever could be scavenged or stolen, spray painted and sketchy.
Every street had one. Mine was the "anarchy" ramp. My parents dealt with the awkward hulk in the front of the house for 2 years.

Re: Stuff that reminds you of 80's Freestyle

^^^I remember when Martin Aparijio and Josh White came to our local bike shop to do a show.  No one knew who Josh White was yet.  They both had yellow performers and "Ain't No Stopping Us" from the Breakin' movie played on continuous loop for an hour during the show.


I need FredZ cruiser bars!!

The scar across the bridge of my nose. I got into a fight with three guys who thought that they could ride their bikes where I skated. I lost by the way. Cheers
