The sticker of the fuzzy ball guy flipping the bird, or if you were a cool kid, the double flip off.
What were those?


What I should have said, was nothing.

Re: Stuff that reminds you of 80's Freestyle

I.O.U. sweatshirts and jeans from Merry Go Round. Chess King clothes.  Colored tires so soft they looked like Play-Doh. Neon anything especially shoelaces. Chucks!

New Coke! Max Headroom

Acid washed jeans


I get this question often so here it is to save everyone time. I do not have any Mongoose DMC decals left. I was lucky enough to find a small bunch of NOS decal sets in an old bike shop that no longer exists and I have since sold them all. Sorry. I wish you all the best of luck with your DMC builds.

Re: Stuff that reminds you of 80's Freestyle

80's Freestyle says 1985-88 to me...

OK, clothes top to bottom:

Occasional ballcap -
Oakleys
"Business-up-front-party-in-back" mullet
I.O.U (We had Merry Go Round and Boogies in Colorado)/ Generra tops or nuthin' in the summer
Jams/Parachute Levi 501's French-rolled or even Baggies
Chucks until '86 Superstars-fat-laced for a while after or Jordan high-tops


Bike:
1985 Slime Green Skyway Street Beat

By this time Atari, Odyssey and Intelivision were dead ...
Games:
Nintendo (we tried Skate or Die and BC Surf and Sport), Sega Master Sysem, but the Arcade was still king
Toys:
Pretty much defunct after Nintendo, but Star Wars figures to Transformers were still to be found in my room ...
Comics: Marvel Secret Wars !!!

Music:
This was all over the place, but...
Night Ranger (they were huge til SoMS)
Def Leppard
Beastie Boys
Run DMC
Metallica
Megadeth
Ozzy (was on his solo career by then...)
INXS
U2
Depeche Mode


The clock struck two, I shot my goo...

Re: Stuff that reminds you of 80's Freestyle

Super Mario 3 of course! Just hearing the sound takes me back to the 80's cool
Playing it on Saturday morning at your friend's house, eat lunch then grab bikes and ride for the rest of the day. I really really enjoyed my childhood... I wouldn't have it any other way!! My parents didn't give a sht as long as I get home by 6. Not gonna happen these days... those freedom days are long gone.

Re: Stuff that reminds you of 80's Freestyle

Thats pretty funny. Before I even got to your post I thought, The Hysteria album.  I listen to Hair Nation all day in the car and everytime a song from this album comes on I think of the freestyle days.  The first LA Guns album does it too.


Yeah I want Cheesy Poofs!
