Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

I only had one bike. 1980 Huffy Pro Thunder 2, blue and yellow. We got a 1961 Chevy Impala Bubbletop when I was in 8th grade and restored it over the next three years. As soon as I started to drive the one went to the garage rafter until 2013.

After my Vector got stolen, my last bike was an 85 pro-performer, w/ skyways and Vector (Haro) bars.  I have no idea what I did with it...  roll

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

86 Predator. First non-department store bike my parents bought me. Still had it in 93 when I graduated. Had a red to black fade paint job, gold arayas, gt bars, dk xl stem, orange uni seat, and orange comp 3 knock offs. Ugly as sin, but I was racing, and beating, the kids that were on the $1000 bikes mom and dad built for them. 93 was the same year someone else decided they needed it more than me mad

Hutch Windstyler, loaned it to a "friend" who got it stolen. Have had a few bikes and never officially stopped riding but car+job+girlfriend at the time put serious riding on the back burner. Still have a Polaroid picture of the Windstyler but no pictures of ex girlfriends!

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

For me I remember the beginning of the end like it was yesterday. Year was 1997. My last bmx was a 1996 speed series without box stays. Purchased it from a rich friend that rode it for one summer. At time of purchase I also ordered some 48h super 7x to sealed mohawks from the lbs cause I wanted some strong rims to go with my new bike.

Fast forward about 8 months and I am getting my driver's license. My parents said they would help me with cost if I would get something "sensible". I say F that I'm getting a sports car. So I buy a 86 turbo laser with all my savings and it immediately breaks down. I'm on the hook to fix it myself for the decisions I've made. I sold those super 7x to mowawks to another friend so I could fix the fuel pump in that car. didn't ride a bike again for another 15 years. Sad when I think backhttps://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/214402/20151212_0216065a75fd1187.jpg

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

I know I wish I had a picture of it. Purple answer bars and purple 5 hole overdrive sprocket. My buddy had a wheel set with purple Mohawks and purple nipples but kept them that's why I bought the 48 hole super 7s

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

1981 Hutch X-Long Pro
This frame and fork was picked up at Chain reaction bike shop in Redwood City Ca in late 1981 after my Redline Proline factory bike was stolen. It served me as an extra race bike (to my Boss, my shortlived Kuwahara factory ride, and my Patterson) through mid 1983 when I quit racing. It then was used by my brother Tim to ride around town with his friends...needless to say they thrashed it, The first pic is of the bike (condition) how I found it in my parents garage in 2001. It then sat for 8 more years in my storage shed until I decided it was time to restore it. I sold the mis matched tuff 2 wheels (and yes the front was definately a metal flange hub...you guys were wrong), traded the SE landing gear lite (my brother replaced the fork in 1988 with it after breaking my og one and throwing it away...ugh) to Perry, sold the GT bars seat post suntour clamp tuff neck and just sold the cranks (single pinch redline flights).

I found out that the top tube was corroded (thanks Lou) and sent to Chip at C4 for repair. I then got mit chromed by Brets high dollar guy who wouldnt do it because he said even with repairs the top tube was junk. I had the top tube replaced and the bike rechromed (got some forks that were same era but not the two hole style). I then slowly pieced the bike back together to look similar to my OG ride in 1983. Hope you guys like it as its not as nice as some others but it was really raced by me.

Nice!  After 35-ish years, I still have mine, too; just as it was BITD, though it doesn't get ridden much anymore.

A '79. This is a replica of it. It was my only bike,up until girl time. Still had a couple years before finally getting a car. I had a Diamondback SS,and then another old Goose,before a car.

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

My Apollo Mk2.
Black frame, yellow velcro Apollo padset, black Araya 7X rims, silver Tech 3 levers, silver Suntour Power stem, silver Diacompe MX1000 calipers, copy Fuan grips, yellow Viscount Apollo seat, fluted chrome seat post.
That's from what I can remember.........
No pics of it (I haven't found any yet at all in photo albums). sad
Was still rolling on that back in 1989 - 1990, hangin' with the "chicks" tongue and that was when I went up a gutter trying to be a hero and snapped the frame right at the seat post clamp area! madmad
End of my Apollo Mk2. sad

Then I rolled on my skateboard, hangin' with the "chicks" from then on until I got a MTB.
At least I still have my skateboard, which I got from Skateboard World in Burwood, NSW, Australia back in 1987. smile

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

I get the premise of the thread..however, I have always been into cars.
They say my first words were about our 'OL DODGE. And not "ma" or "pa". Still into cars. And, I was quite ahead of time with girls as well..waaaaaay..ahead..But the "last bike I rode before girls and cars" is the bike you all know about, that I've had since new at the age of 11. My first,..BEAST. 1987 SKYWAY STREETBEAT.

Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Re: Do you guys remember your last BMX before chicks and cars ?

My last bike as a kind was actually a Schwinn beach cruiser which I got Christmas 1982.  Summer of 1983 I moved from SoCal where bikes were huge & the local high school had a HUGE bike rack because driving age was 18, to South Carolina where you could get a license at 15 & many kids were driving before then.  Nobody I knew had a bike there, the high school didn't even HAVE a bike rack.  We were all learning to drive.

My JMC Andy Patterson...traded it for a shitty Fender Squire $200.00 guitar and a peavy amp...what was my 18 yo self thinking...


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...
