This could be in Soledad Bmx on my blue Mongoose. Can’t remember what I did with this bike. This is cool thread let’s keep it going.

Re: "Back in the day" photos of yourself (with your wheels)

The parents have just dished out some more old photos, so thought i should share, a young me with my new rob roskopp fish stik santa crus board, and my freshly powdered dp firebird....loved that bike.....cool
A few years between the photos.
And believe it or not, one of my mates used to call my dog eddie fiola, cos the dogs ears resembled Eddie's long black locks.....big_smile

Re: "Back in the day" photos of yourself (with your wheels)

Here are a few pictures from back in the day. Wish I had more.

Don't even know what I'm riding here. Guessing this around 1980.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/53147/img_21315e7fa283a1.jpg

This one is from 1987 on my CW shaker out in front of the church at my Aunt and uncles wedding.
(Hence my suit and balloons on the ends of my bars)
https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/53147/img_47535e7fa37f67.jpg

Sometime in 1988 failing on a bar ride. Pretty sure this was a 1987 red and black sport.

Re: "Back in the day" photos of yourself (with your wheels)

1978 (Race Inc):
which a member here ended up buying from a local scrap yard. I know its mine as I scribed the BB with #383. He is trying to bend me over to buy it from him. I wont give him what he wants, even if it was my first true race bike. Its principal. I WOULD pay a "FAIR" price. He can keep it, its a mini.
Side note: I had a Scorpion bike I started to part out when I ran across a name and SS number on the BB. I found the OG owner (on FB), contacted him. He said he was a factory rider and sent me a picture of him with the bike from BITD. I promptly, made him a deal and sold his bike back to him for what I had in it. I found it more rewarding to see him get back his bike, then the few $$ I would have made on it selling it in pieces.

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...
So how many years were you a Pro....

Newbie...
No front brakes, except for freestyle.
Adjust your seat and bars, so it looks like you actually ride.
Use cruiser bars on cruisers.
No laybacks on cruisers either, jeez.
