OM Flyer thread- Show them off

I searched and searched, but couldn’t find a thread dedicated to the Old Man of BMX cruisers. So here it is. Post up your OMs. New, Old, custom- whatever. It’s all good. I figure this can also be a good place for info.
So if you have some good info to share, post it up!

Here mine-

Re: OM Flyer thread- Show them off

I have or had a 2012 OM Flyer with some 4 piece Nyquist bars. This is the only picture I have of it since my dad borrowed it as a neighborhood cruiser about a year ago. Saddle and pedals aren't stock.

Looking for a small Yeti made Schwinn Homegrown MTB frame. Or other Yeti made frames. Pair of Spurs tickets to all home games for sale or trade for 80's BMX or nice Odyssey Pitbull brake.
If I owe you feedback let me know.

Re: OM Flyer thread- Show them off

My current favourite ride, everything pretty much stock, but she cruises awesome. 2011 was an ok year with regards the colour scheme to...big_smile
Eventually I will remove the front brake, and replace the grips for some black ones.

Re: OM Flyer thread- Show them off

What a great thread. smile

The retro OM Flyer is my favorite wheelie bike. I remember when I got it as a Christmas present it sort of matched my Christmas tree. lol

http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/236417/img_20190120_1910305c44baa99d.jpg

Need to make new pictures of the complete bike.
