The Unofficial Vintage BMX Appreciation Thread

I can't take it anymore you guys. We don't discuss these important and historical machines enough on C&V.

Back in the day we ruled the streets from sunup to well after sunset.
We rode anywhere and everywhere.....The Arcade to play that favorite video game, the railroad tracks and abandoned factories, dirt trails, woods, the swimming pool, that "Moon Fun Shop/Head Shop" your parents didn't want you going into, friends' houses, Spencer's Gifts/The Mall....We rode everywhere. We were "Rad" and we thrashed.

There was always an epic search for the cool jump that nobody had found yet; We pushed ourselves to go higher and faster.
DiamondBack, Mongoose, Redline, GT, ACS, Bullseye, Schwinn, Murray, KHS, Dyno, Haro, P.K. Ripper, Hutch, KKT Lightning, Kuwahara, Tuff-Neck, Tioga, Skyway, Laid Back seatposts, Van's...The list is endless.

Welcome friend, this is the place to discuss and show off your old school "dirt bike" BMX bikes.......

Feathered hair and slip on Vans made us more aerodynamic as we sailed through the air! Fantastic photo. You?

I recently sold off my entire vintage BMX collection, they are cool little bikes, but just not really useful to keep around. It was pretty much all of the bike stuff I collected as a kid.

I am with you on this topic! I too LOVED everything BMX as a kid. Started with a heavy Murray and transitioned into a pretty sweet Redline. My friends had Hutch, Mongoose, Kuwahara, P.K. Ripper, and Diamond Backs.

Shorts and my Op t-shirt and I was out the door first thing in the morning. Good times. :-)

That's right. Corduroy OP shorts and t-shirt, Vans, and 8 hours of riding around. Devouring every page of the new issue of BMX Action!

Schwinn SX1000, Race Inc. (early aluminum bike), Kuwahara, GT Pro and, finally, a Haro Master. The GT was the best of the bunch.

I really want a cool old BMX like a Haro Master or something but they are danged hard to find in good shape. I had a guy near me selling this beauty, which I think would have cleaned up really nicely but he never got back to me....I am still annoyed at that.



I got this weird little guy from a scrap yard and it will be my nephew's once I find a decent fork for it...

Here is my oldish Redline Micro Mini.





I would love to get a 1977 Webco Replica with Skyway Tuff Wheels or a 1976 Graco full suspension moto bike, as these are the first two bikes I can remember owning.

Hee hee! I forgot about feathered hair!!
Not me; My greatest childhood pal, Dale. There was me, Matt, 2 brothers Steve & Jason who always fought over 1 bike in particular, and my best friend Dale..... That photo seems to be the only remaining bit of our childhood times together. Girls, and later wives, came along and we all went our seperate ways....

Matt was the cool kid on the block because he had a Supergoose and at that time Mongoose was a dominant BMX name with many Pro riders,
Steve and Jason had beaters like the photo below because their Dad said bikes were "too expensive" and they "didn't deserve those expensive bikes".
Dale had the bike in the photo which was a POS Murray that everybody made fun of him for riding and being the "poor kid".... He could catch better air and fly further/faster than any other bike in the neighborhood. Everything on his bike came out of garbage cans.....

http://


My first dirt bikes were Schwinn's, followed by my first brand new bike/1st trip to a bike shop with my grandfather. I still remember how wonderful that afternoon felt.

We came home with my first high-end BMX race bike; A 1983 DiamondBack Pacer 500. Fast forward 25 years to 2008, I am digging around the salvage yard for a lugged road bike stem and I find my first "real" BMX bike:

http://

I would later go on to race BMX for GT bikes.....Which changed my whole life and very likely kept me out of Juvenile Detention Centers......

You raced for GT? Very cool!

One of my youthful highlights was going to the 1982 World Cup of BMX (as a spectator) in Knoxville, TN ( I lived nearby). I remember meeting Greg Hill, Jeff Bottema, Harry Leary, Scott "Old Man" Breithaupt, Toby Henderson, and Scott Clark! Man, that just hurt my brain trying to recall their names. I hope I didn't "misremember" too badly.

I loved that old GT. It got stolen from outside of a McDonalds. My dad's homeowners insurance paid out and I bought the Haro Master. But, it just wasn't the same. A few months later, I moved on to road bikes, and girls, and college.......

Here are we are, right back at the beginning?

Here is the rarest-of-the-rare in the world of GT's....

Brainstormed by GT founder Gary Turner in his shop... He had envisioned massive packs of rabid shredders flying down the mountains. That's right, this is the only known vintage Prototype BMX GT suspension bike that you will ever see.....I didn't feel right about hoarding it. It will be shining at the BMX museum in the future....

You don't want to know what kind of $ offers I received on this one....Seriously

Whether it was a good or bad idea, it is extremely rare....

Youngsters! The first time I even saw a BMX bike I was probably 17 or so and my friend Sid's little brother David, who was maybe 5 years younger than us, got this outrageous red BMX bike with gold anodized components that cost $450!!! I have no idea what kind it was. Must have been around 1978-1979 maybe. We still had our "10-speeds" but by then we were all into cars, motorcycles, and girls and didn't pay much attention to bikes anymore, at least for a decade or so until we rediscovered the joys of riding. I still scratch my head when I see a 6 foot tall teenager riding a BMX bike with his knees hitting his chin.

You may be thinking of these crazy Freestyle kids, the new Freestyle BMX generation, on the bikes w/ the seat lowered all the way down...

Is that you? Pretty cool. I was pretty young in those days and just got into BMX a little before getting my first MTB at about 12 and after that there were no more home built neighborhood ramps (except for skate ramps, of course) or BMX bikes. I had a Redline and a PK Ripper. They were both hand-me-downs from my older neighbor that I looked up to and wanted to be like at the time.

Wow, you found that Diamond Back at the Dump?

I had one similar to that stolen from my Brother after he chained it up at the Lakewood Mall in California.

My dad claimed it on our home Owner's insurance and we promptly bought myself a Super-Goose and a Commodore 64 computer from the change.

I grew up in North Long Beach right around the corner from SE Racing, the company that produced the PK Ripper. Always wanted one of those frames. I remember going to a bike shop in Reno Nevada a couple of years ago an seeing SE Racing, bought by some offshore company, starting to produce the PK Ripper again. Though I imagine the OLD SCHOOL Rippers will bring way more coin than the modern ones for sure!

I could type here for hours going on about how many BMX Bikes I owned and had stolen from me, my brother, and friend's when I was a youth. Many of those times while I was still on my bike! That is the biggest reason I started riding Road bikes when I outgrew my 20 inchers. Too big and the bullies and thieves could never catch me.

Is there a name for the type of seatpost that this little GT has? I need one about this long and don't know what to search for. I also just found out that my fork only fits a 21.1mm stem, any suggestions for something rad but cheap? Cheers!

Awsome ZeRinger! I forgot about Ocean Pacific!!

See the photos below for a few of my Redlines.... I am always on the lookout for those elusive baseballs and hotdogs that were stamped on the BB....


itsIRIEpat,
It took me a week to get the chrome back on that DB. It was very rough when I found it....


jet sanchEz,You should have no problemo finding that seat post... It is a pretty standard post called a "Dyno Laid Back/Layback".
You could probably find them on your local Craigslist if you place a "wanted" post, can definitely get them on ebay, but before either of those I would go to this site: http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/

Great bunch of guys and gals, the most comprehensive BMX site that I'm aware of, and it was started by one of the most prolific and influential figures in the sport, Gary Turner: http://bmxmuseum.com/about/

A very sweet MX II with the "Holy Grail" of cranks at that time...Hutch

This was the project that got me back into cycling. Was a lot of fun to build up and a great learning experience, though it took a while and cost me a fortune cause I got most of the parts one at a time off ebay. (Nevermind all the tools I needed to buy too, cause they'll get used again.)

It's too small to commute on, and too old and fragile for an adult to BMX on, so it just sits in my apartment taking up valuable space.

I need to fix up one last thing (fork crown race is loose and needs a shim) and then I'll be chucking it up on ebay. Unfortunately I'll be lucky if I get 1/3 back of what I put into it, but it was worth it for the experience.

Speaking of Ocean Pacific and other "fashion items"... how about the cool little bits and parts you just HAD to have back in the day?

Remember donuts for your bar grips in all different colors and patterns? Grips themselves... Mushrooms? I think I even had some really funky Oakley (?) bar grips that looked like they belonged on the Batmobile. Pedals (I forget the brand but there were a few must have types.. mine were anodized blue) GT Layback seat posts, and various seats (I think I had a Kashimax Aero or something along those lines)

Colored rim strips for those dotted Mongoose rims which I thought were oh-so-cool.... what else do you remember??
