46 years old and back into BMX!!!!
« on: December 15, 2018, 07:32 AM »
So I was sat minding my own business at a motorsport venue when a guy came past on an 80's Diamond Back. Got me all nostalgic and no sooner was I back home I was on ebay looking at old school BMX (well some of them were despite their titles).

OMG....what has happened. In 1980 I wanted a Mongoose or Redline or Diamond Back (but my dad could not afford that (I know they were only like 250).

Now I need to spend over 1000  :10_2_12:

I have since ended up picking up a Skyway Street Styler (86) F&F and a Mongoose Motomag (80) F&F.

Now the search for parts and asking silly questions begins...gulp!!!!!!

Welcome to rad mate  :daumenhoch:

We have a decent search facility and a pretty extensive tech and resto section plus some really good stickies on stuff like cleaning chrome, dying mag wheels etc  :daumenhoch:

Don't be affraid to ask though, we have all been there  ;)
Sixteen thirty-two. What is that? A year?   No, it's your top score on Pole Position.

Skyway paint not original no, but it is as close to the original colour as could be done.

My photo makes it look a few shades darker than it is. Is like this one (on the right).
