You mean dressing like that isn't normal?

If you dressed like that today, you could be an eBay millionaire.

If I can speak as a BMXer from the 80's, most of us actually didn't wear full leathers.
But that doesn't mean we dressed any less silly:

Did anybody else here buy an original pair of VAN's checkboard shoes in 1983?

Dude, I had the original Tony Alva-designed brown on tan, the blue on blue, and the checkered ones. I like how my favorite Vans are actually called "Old school" by Vans now.

I am really glad there are no remaining photos of me from 1983.

I don't remember wearing that at all, I remember Vans, Jams and Chuck's. Of course I'm still wearing the Chuck's. And I don't want to forget my t-shirts that had the iron on decals on them, thanks mom.

If we were in the 80's and on a BMX track I think I could start on the gate backwards and still beat anybody who reads this.
