We had about 6 other old skool BMX's but have no pics of them..

Anyway we sold them all this year cos they didn't get used that much and the 4 figure sum we got for them came in very handy Shocked

Proper old skool Rich, love it!

I had a mongoose back in the early nineties, layback seatpost, chrome frame, red accessories and proper spoked wheels with red hubs, I sold it when I got married in 96, apparently it was not deemed sensible enough for a married man! No

I did keep my Bauer skates and my street hockey sticks though afro

Bit dissappointed coz I missed an auction by 20p for a NOS yellow burner sasddle yesterday. On the other hand I did sell the Bomber 2 days ago for 30, so someone will be getting a nice present no doubt. Pics up when I get access. Smile

he has some serious gear.
there is a vip section in rad that you are invited to join he is in that as well.

last count he told me 25 bikes all in show condition with correct parts.
et kawahara , in exact film spec shiny side ukai wheels, all corecct parts.
a full on eddie fiola flying banana gt performer.

at bug jam last year he was talking to biaggio , who does the bmx parts and fuchs for ages, but he said everyone has fallen out with him as he was trying to rip everyone off in think.
