Hey Cressy

Welcome to the boards . That is some cool BMX's you got there . I love the white Haro , looks like new.

When i was a kid , i loved BMX , but i'm a little to you to have had the full impact of it . I was going out ot of style when i had the size , money and intrest .

So i could only pick up used bikes , Raligh Burner and Giant where the only bikes i could get my hand on . I had left all my bikes an parts at my moms house . And i have been selling of the stuff the last year .

I was thinking about keeping my beloved Giant Chrome bike . But i don't have the time to make it work . And i would have to use a lot of money to make it work Crying or Very sad

But still i love BMX , So thanks for posting the pictures . I love to see more Very Happy

Here are some old school danish BMX ads Very Happy I have some more , some where .

nice mate
yer i had to wait 20 years to get the 84 haro sport

i wanted it as a kid but single parent family ,so i had no chance

i have a oldschool bmx party at my house once a year and it called Radelaide
we get guys from all around australia come over for it
i build a old bmx each year with donation parts
i then raffle 100 tickets to collectors and that pays for all the beer and bbq and make a great day

last year i had 80 blokes show up and 120 old bikes

we had 15 cartons of beer and 200 snags


hehehehehehe


the burners are very easy to retore now as you can get all the NOS parts for them but big $$$

thanks for looking

Paul

Cool stuff. When I was a kid I had a Dyno Pro Comp. It was all white. It was the coolest bike in town Smile Wish I still had it.

Wauw Poul

That is a great idea with that raffel and party . And to get 80 guys to get together all with the same intrest in bikes .
That is just great . Maybe you shuld epand the idea next time and have some vintage toys like SW , GI Joes, hand held games etc.

I'm shure many of the other guys would be kicked back in time by seeing that old stuff Very Happy
Or matybe just invite a vintage reseller to the party with some of his stuff Very Happy

Best regards

Soren

Some very very cool BMX's there Paul, I used to have a tough burner as a kid the one with the 5 spoke mag's, only a standard one but I did do some crazy stuff on it & had a good few nasty scrapes trying to do better like I am sure you did to, the get together sounds like a right laugh, must be impossible to get out what you want with 80 of you together all re living the dream.

I have a freid over here thats the same as you, does up old school BMX's from scratch, I got this for him a few years back, managed to rescue it from a local Tip (waste dump), its a vintage diamond back with everything still on it, got it for his for £25, which incidentally he still owes me for like 4 years on scratch which reminds me to pay him a visit!



As you can see 2 of my kids were after it straight away Very Happy it even still had the vintage handlebar grips, but they were well sticky.
