2018 pick ups and finishes

My plan for 2018 was to not buy or build any new bikes.  Well, that didn't happen.  lol

Here are a couple of bikes I bought complete and a couple others I've owned for several years but finished to my liking this year. 

If any of you all have any cool BMX pick ups from 2018 post them here.

Re: 2018 pick ups and finishes

All nice, but I really like the GT. Have always wanted a set of Spin MAGs, but never wanted to shell out for them, still one of my favorite MAG wheel.

Thanks guys. Yeah, I agree Deimos666, the GT looks awesome with those wheels. 

Does anyone else have a stash from this year they'd like to share?  smile

Re: 2018 pick ups and finishes

Yeah I didn't really expect to build any of these this year lol

It all started when I finally picked up my BMX frame stash from my parents garage early this spring... of course I couldn't just let perfectly good frames sit there and go unridden could I?  No... I could not.  Resistance was futile and EVERYTHING got ridden this year, some of it for the first time since high school!

They all have long dumb nostalgic stories about why they mean so much to me and all the work I did to rebuild them, but you guys probably don't wanna hear about that so here's the pics.  Not the nicest stuff around, but like I said they mean a lot to me.

Seriously could not BELIEVE I stumbled on the Pro Series frame around my bday this year, right on the museum!  Got it built with junk spare parts right now, it's gonna be a slow build exactly the way I want, but I just HAD to see how it rode before winter big_smile

Re: 2018 pick ups and finishes

Hell yeah!  I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who had a good 2018.  AJ Macaroo, I really like the Jayhawk Racing bike.  I was thinking about buying one last year, I might have to put that on my list for 2019.  smile
