Same here. Even a stock one was cool as before were mainly vans, wagons and pickups.


Looking for these items if reasonably priced:

• Profile 160 - 175mm crankset in chrome
• Odyssey F series 3/8 axle forks in chrome
• 9 or 10t  20" doublewall wheelset

Trades as well on items I have listed:

If I had a nickel for every time I've been cursed by a puppet I would have 2 nickels.  Which isn't a lot but it's weird that it happened twice.

Re: **BEST MEMORY OF THE 80's**

cool A local record store near me did a theater screening of Repo Man last year when they released the blu ray. It looked like a punk rock retirement home in there.

Re: **BEST MEMORY OF THE 80's**

I just remember riding my bike. Wasn't always allowed to go too far. So would just put in who knows how many miles. Riding wheelies up and jumping curbs and skidding the way down.

Please.....no Tuff Wheels on full on race bikes...original graphite’s only and pre 81 and never on a cruiser for God’s sake
Let me guess you were factory sponsored in
the 80’s...
Please no colored tires on race bikes...
So how many years were you a Pro....
You knew a guy that had a Mongoose that weighed 12 pounds
What year did you mix it up with Stu?

Re: **BEST MEMORY OF THE 80's**

Some really cool stuff here; quite the trip down memory lane.

For all the great memories of '80s BMX, movies and TV, Saturday mornings, video arcades, etc., etc., I'd have to say that my best memory of the '80s would be ...
