BMX Freestyle Bikes

Is anyone into BMX bikes? I have a 1998 GT Show and 2-Hip Pork for sale.

Re: BMX Freestyle Bikes

I used to ride through the first couple years of high school and grew out of it when I started driving. Now, I'm 22 and decided to get back into it. Bought a bike, went to the skatepark with an old riding friend of mine, and decided the next day that I was too out of shape to ride again and starting parting my T1 out, haha

No takers at 'bmxmuseum' for that show?
You should post there if you haven't already.

Growing up I always wanted a Haro sport, in sport blue. What a bike. The freestyle was nice to. I ended up getting a norco. All I ever did was ride that bike. the good ol days.

I was big into BMX's back in the 80's.

I had a 1984 Haro Freestyler in white. I bought all my own parts for it: White Skyway Tuffs, Tuff Neck stem, chain ring and disc, Dia Compe Mx1000 brakes, Shimano DX pedals, GT Pro bars.

I also owned a Skyway T/A, Mongoose Supergoose and a Kuwahara Lazerlite amongst others.

Aye mate, those bikes cost a small fortune back then. I really liked the Mongoose Supergoose, that was the bike that had the holes drilled in the wheels to save on weight, bit of a gimmick if you ask me.

Mongoose made a good bike unfortunately they sold out and are now a Walmart cheapie.

Back in the day I always wanted a Redline. Flight cranks was all I dreamed of.

In my mid twenties the BMX bug bit me again, as a lot of guys my age had kids that were able to compete. They grabbed a bike themselves and we raced guys in our own age group.
I got myself a GT Speed Series Cruiser frame and forks.
Never got my Flight cranks I wanted, but I got some nice Profile 3 piece cranks with a titanium spindle, DK bars, Black Widow pedals, ACS claws freewheel and a bunch of other cool stuff I couldn't afford as a kid. :-)

Wouldn't mind getting a bike again someday!

(I know this thread is about BMX 'Freestyle' bikes, but thought I would chime in)

Re: BMX Freestyle Bikes

I love that there are other (former) BMX'ers here.
I've had:
Mid 80's Mongoose Decade in White
Mid 80's Haro FST in Black-Grey Fade
Mid 80's Haro Sport in Black-Blue Split
Early 90's (2nd run) Bully I (yes, the bashguard one) in Red-Black Fade
Mid 90's (1st Gen) S&M Dirt Bike in the All Chrome phase
Late-ish 90's Hoffman TAJ in the famous Metallic Powder Blue
2000-01 Mutiny Undertaker in White
...and probably a handful more that I'm forgetting.

Now I'm far too old, too fat, and too afraid of injuring my hands (the one part of your body that's almost guaranteed to get hurt when you crash) to ride anymore.

Re: BMX Freestyle Bikes

Haro's are amazing bikes. I had the blue one, and it was a beast guys. Handeled everything, and is still great.
