Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

i'm 22 and started messing with bikes when i was like 8ish bought my frist new bike at department store with some money i got from b=days then fixed it up a lil sold it and started the hussle for a while my father and i were collecting old schwinn, cruisers, stingrays, middleweights we had/have then all but i then i got a 86 haro freestyler ( with a group 1 3pc didnt know what bike was wroth at the time) then stripped off the original paint and decals to repaint and decal like a new haro (so i would be cool with all the other kids that had new stuff), so with that said i mainly like 85-88 freestyle stuff mainly haro but gt other tickle my fancy, i also like late 70's-early 80's race stuff such as gusset goose's, high end schwinns (sting's sting comp's sx2000s), the skyway ta's, gt's the se's

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

I am 40. I used to race a CW ZX PRO and I still love that frame. I really like the CW pro motion cruisers as well. I believe my frame was an '83. I mowed a lot of lawns for that bike and I loved racing. Unfortunately, My 1981 RM 125 and this bike were sold when I went to college. Motorcycles and BMX bikes are not your friend when you are a college athlete. I got into Downhill MTB racing for a few years after college but I can't do my job if I can't walk. I am about to buy a bike or two to fix up. I just picked up a clean mid school Powerlite for my son. The more bikes I see on this site the more I get excited. My Faves:

CW ZX Pro
CW Promotion 24"
Late 70's DG
Early 80's Robinson Loop Tails
All old school cruisers

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

I'm 41 and the only bikes that will open my wallet are S&M or Standard Bykes.

There are many I love to see and lust after, but those are the only one's I'm willing to pony up for.


I like new school, it's all I ride.
I love to look at all BMX bikes, I just love the sport.

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

41.

I'm a big fan of new school rides, and some of the late 90's/early 00's rides.  anything that looks clean, single TT, no stickers or other BS, no pegs, slammed chainstay and seat, cut bars.  the old school rides are just too dang short for me (at 6'4") and the parts quality just doesn't stack up.

hard to think of anything that looks better than a murdered-out Standard or S&M/Fit with just a hint of gold or red somewhere on it.

I am a total Haro Guy. Not The New Or Mid School Haros. Just 83-88 models.

I know I wasn't even riding bikes till 88 But growing up I would always traded my mid school bikes for the older Haros.Nothing compares!

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

I'm 42 and mostly all the good bikes from the old days interest me. I'm not really interested in anything that's not 80's era, and earlier 80's are better for me.

I don't plan to build a collection, (although I wouldn't pass up a great deal at the local pawn shop). I'm just interested in having 3 right now, one for me, and two for my daughters. If i ever do any collecting, I think I will limit it to F/F only.

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

I'm 33 and if you see my collection, in 1987 I was 12 and in awe whenever I saw Fiola or Itson.  The freestyle bikes from 87 to 89 are what I really get a kick out of.

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

I'm 35 and I love old school freestylers.  I especially love the twin top tubers.  I've had my 540 Air for almost two years and I still get a little chubby when I see it.  Can't wait to build my Magician EX.

Re: What bikes turn you on? & how old are you?

Im 30 so I remember alot of colors in my day but I had a redline with no pegs or rotor. But those colrs are cool to see and do up. But I love cruisers the way the look and fit my longer arms. But I like the strength and durability of the newer stuff. I want to get a newschool thrasher rider to ride so my older bikes stay in my garage and not head to the dump in bent up peices. Dont like hutches or those monoque style bikes. Aluminum is blah too.


Im loving the neon ,flourescent colors on these newschool bikes and Its makin me like the newschool rides more
