Re: best memory from 70s-80s

70's - Probably Christmas 1979; Star Wars toys, Lite BRITE, Spider-Man big wheel ... This was the last "happy holiday season" in my mom's house.

80's - June 10, 1987 ... The day I discovered my "special purpose" ... If you don't know the reference, then the close 2nd from the 80s was when I bought my 1st bike @ 4 years earlier.


Dang !!! I been catfished !!!

Re: best memory from 70s-80s

Man, just reading these posts puts a smile on my face.

I had a reverse mullet trying to be just like Ron Wilkerson, except riding a master. Coming home from school, watching transformers before heading out to the local basketball court to bust out some decades and California hoppers with my friends.  We'd take a brake once in a while and talk about all the chicks we wanted to "go out with"

Simpler times....

Re: best memory from 70s-80s

Summer was a non stop sleepover at Dougies. Ridin up to the plaza everyday to hit Torque Center....and Schobers Bike shop. Carlton 120s. Rubberknife Gang. Sneakin thru drivethrus to grab dropped change for a beverage. Bugle Boys. French rolling the bottoms of Ur pants. Ditch weed outta a soda can. Alpine Valley music theater. Sex Waxing every curb in town. Tobacco Bongs. Friday Nite Videos. River Raid. Rip Grip. A bag of free burgers at George Webbs after the Brewers took the 82 world series. Those plastic spaceships that happy meals came in a McDs. Denise.

I Enjoyed the hell outta my young life. Left it all on the field back then. I remember the smell of the air at the end of an awesome summer day as the sun was setting. The sweeeeet smell of Freedom. And Rector Rot!smile


I like BMX bikes.

Re: best memory from 70s-80s

CHIPS, going to discos with my aunts, learning to cuss, the Incredible Hulk, go carts, skipping school, throwing rocks, penthouse mag, jeans with patches on the knees, being around cigarette smoke everywhere, going to the same movie over and over again and looking back today, realizing that my parents were and are the greatest part of my childhood.

Re: best memory from 70s-80s

my best memory from the 80s is every friday me and a couple of my good friends would gather at my place and work on our bikes, grease the bearings, clean everything, and switch out some parts, and usually my friend would bring a frame set every couple weeks that we would work on. we would have music playing, like metallica , iron maiden, scorpions, metal church, all diff music.  these were some of the best times and my friends would help me a whole lot with building my bikes. they were very good at building bikes, Im good too but i get stuck on brakes and 3 pc cranks sometimes. rotors and  stuff like that gets me sometimes. they would always do that stuff for me.

I was looking for it, but for the life of me, I couldn't find it.  I guess memories are meant to be lost.

Re: best memory from 70s-80s

I miss kids spending most of their free time outside and actually getting upset to be told its time to come in.  I miss when society had a sense of humor and didnt get offended by things like manhole covers.  I miss when the school system didnt try to convince my son it was "brave" to dress like a girl and we actually stopped and said a prayer on the school bus before field trips.  I miss the GOOD Saturday Night Live when every single skit wasnt a political rant.  I miss when moms in school would bring treats for birthdays and holidays to the entire class without the threat of killing 4 with a peanut and wounding 2 with gluten.  I miss when our troops were hailed as heroes and treated as such.  I miss when a kid would act up they would get spanked by just about everybody.  I miss when college professors werent turning kids into America-hating communists.  I miss the 80's so damn much it hurts......they were good times and we didnt even realize it.
