I know what you are talking about Haros and Mongooses where the shit.

I laugh at kids now a days riding with their damn seats all slammed and their huge as bars that make no sense.

 

Oh well, I ride cause I love it.

HELL YA,

BUT THE BARS ACTUALLY GOT SMALLER

SO THE NEW GENERATION COULD PULL THESE NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TRICKS THEY

DO NOWADAYS.

 

IN 1984 I REMEMBER A BRAND CALLED VECTOR RESEARCH THAT HAD THE IDEA

TO WELD THE BARS TO A STEM.

I would be impressed if you still had the skyway, or the trickstar. If you could bust out an old Kuwahara or something of the like, I would be even more impressed.

i "had"

a chrome Kuwahara, but in those days the E.T. movie "cheesed" it up a little

having one, for me anyway so i traded it for a schwinn predator.

good frame swap actually.

 

got rid of the skyway cause i didn't like how thin some of the tubes were.

several diamond backs later-

 

chrome trickstar restoration is in my near future.

yes i still have it.

all geared up too.

REDLINE FLIGHT CRANKS

SKYWAY TUFF 2's

HUTCH STEM

HUTCH SEATPOST CLAMP

HUTCH "MIKE DOMINGUEZ BARS

ACS ROTOR

that's the bike all my "trading" of random parts lead up to.

never got my other dream-bike, pk ripper loop-tail,

oh well , got 1 from my dream list.

 

***extra credit:

I REMEMBER WHEN THE FIRST FRONT BRAKE MOD THROUGH THE STEM CAME ABOUT.

THE ORIGINAL NAME FOR THAT IS THE -

"POTTS-MODIFICATION"

THEN THE REAR BRAKE WITH THE ACS "ROTOR" THEN THE ODDESSEY VERSION.

 

HELL I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT BRANDS YOU GUYS HAVE AVAILIBLE TO YOU NOWADAYS?

(or maybe i'll get clowned for saying the word "brake" ?!?!) LOL

 

PEACE-

Some fixed gear retard on here is probably scheming a pair of these on eBay while I type this.

 

I had a chrome Predator when I was 13-14. It was all right, I just rode it to get around. Sometime in the late 90s I was helping a friend clean out his basement and he had a pristine late 80s Performer. I asked him if he'd sell it and he said he'd let it go for $100. For whatever reason I passed it by...it's probably still there collecting dust.

Hit up the vintagebmx.com or bmxmuseum wanted and for sale sections....ebay, there floating. I'm not into collecting the 80's bikes so much. I do kind of want a trickstar though. I just picked up a tandem that I'm doing a full restoration to right now, something for my girl and I to ride. I think next I'm trying to get a penny farthing, got to finish this one first. How serious are you about getting that looptail? I know two guys that might have one that work at the LBS....

 

Nowadays, we are pushing some GHP's, Redlines, Haro still, Kuwahara, Brew, well actually there is this whole CPSIA thing and everything is changing up. I think Brew is done....At one point a lot bike companies were looking to close, but I think people have found ways around it now. Anyways, Staats, some GT, SE and Hutch and Skyway are finding there niche markets. Sun Ringle is the rim of choice for a lot of people, Chris King is the [insert part here] of choice. Triple Traps are out and clipless pedals are in. You should check out some Supercross, people are doing crazy unheard of things on a bike, consistently now. As far as street, flat, starting a new company is like pissing in the ocean. ACS is still running strong too.

 

And congrats to dR for winning Worlds for the US.

 

Peace.

I didn't really look at them, I didn't really look hard as I'm about to go to bed...

My 5 year old watched " Joe Kid On A Stingray " , and I saw in his eyes the same look I know I had when I watched Santa Cruz's " Streets On Fire " . It's safe to say he wants to BMX . I actually found pegs for his 16" WalMart " Rocket " . :lol: The crazy little sucker actually grinded a curb in front of our house . I need to buy a digital camcorder stat . :cool:

The only thing I have to contribute to this thread is that KGP used to be a sponsored BMX rider

 

I knew he was good and all, but it was hilarious when I realized he had actual fans. Like 5 years back we show up to a skatepark at night, all drunk and beligirent, and there's a few random kids there who, upon seeing him, go "OH SHIT YOU'RE ____! DO YOU WANNA RIDE MY BIKE?!" haha
