Re: HOW DID YOUR BIKES GET STOLEN BACK IN THE 80'S

First I had my chrome Magna with GT goodies stolen out of comic store. Yes inside the comic store!

Second I had my GT interceptor and Vertigo stolen out of locked shed. They cut lock off.

Third I had my same GT interceptor that are recovered &
Stolen from inside the library.

Four I had my another Magna with all GT parts mods I still have current bike but they stolen the rear wheel at library bike rack because locked was around the frame and front wheel but not rear wheel.http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/220860/0b578499-5c2f-41c9-9319-194db65b06c85d5ace3183.jpeg

Thank God mine never did..however, one of mine did get stolen after the fact..
Ill explain more...
I was a dumb kid like we all still are lol and I wanted something. Probably an R/C truck or something. So I sold my 86 chrome/w blue and white decals HARO SPORT. Just built it up with mostly cool parts. I sold it to my  british buddy fresh off the boat. He rides it to the local bad area mall and didnt lock it up. Poof! SPORT IS M.I.A.

Lol I remember that I traded 1980 redline mx-2 all pimped , for one of those dame rc trucks .... f##king regretted that for years

As most of us who were around in the 1980's remember how bad bike theft was back then.

Let's share our story's of how it happened.
Here are my three bikes...


3. Kuwahara Magician...
I had it flipped upside down outside 7-Eleven while I played a video game. I watched that punk ass flip it over, jump on it and ride off... I ran out and gave chase on foot but couldn't catch him.

What's your story?

Unbelievable how many bikes were lost this way BITD, including my younger brother's Hutch.

I never had a bike go missing when I was younger, but ultimately had three bikes stolen from the parking garage of my condo building in two separate incidents (my Redline Proline in 2015 and my GT Pro Series and son's GT Power Series in 2017).  Crazy thing was that both times the thieves took the time to extricate my bikes from the locks, but didn't even bother with my neighbor's carbon Diamondback downhill MTBs.


I'm not a shredder, just a songwriter that plays too many notes.

Only time I recall snagging someone's bike was to remove parts from it that were actually mine.  Then I returned the bike to where I'd picked it up.


It's like the man says, there's no problems...only solutions.

Just kidding. Would be a funny follow-up though. LOL.

Re: HOW DID YOUR BIKES GET STOLEN BACK IN THE 80'S

Was about 14 I bought a bike off a mate, did it up with parts I had . Twin top tube supersport, new paint job , Gold arayas,  hutch spider and chrome bars.  looked a million  dollars. Rode it to my milk delivery job around the corner to a guys place that was employed with us as well , got back and it had gone mad. I knew it was a mate of theirs who stole it. Got in to a fight over it a few years later , kicked his arse . Bought the RL20 after that and still have it . Got a frame to build it up again , time and money :lolhttp://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/41816/20180822_1321525d5b448221.jpg
