Hi All!

My names Jake, 48 and I live in Ashford near Staines (near London).

Started riding back in 1983 on a Grifter (bad choice, should've picked the Burner I was offered but i hadnt seen ET yet) and rode hard till 1989 when everyone around me stopped riding and I switched like many to skateboarding.

I had a few bikes back then but my favorites was my two Pro-lite Craig Campbell's (one cracked and the other got nicked at South Bank), two Haro Freestylers and a 1988 Haro Team Sport. Sadly, I dont own any of them anymore.

Got back into riding in 2002 when I brought a Hoffman Sugar Baby off a mate which progressed to me buying a brand new Haro Mirra Pro bike. I sold that a couple of years later and supported my sons BMX hobby but didnt ride.

Lockdown came and I brought a 2003 Haro Mirra 540 Air off ebay. I've done it up and am now relearning flatland on it and having a great time!.

Welcome to  :radbmxsmilie:

You have had some nice bikes in the past.

Just remember most people may be the same age as you and I am sure we are all mentally 13.

 :welcome to RAD mate, sounds like you are in the right place!
i sold my first nike which i loved in 87/88 to buy a new skateboard deck as my first Vision Gator had finally worn ot after not bothering to replace the Tailbone! i sold it for ?75 and always regretted it,
Fast forward 20 yrs or so and i found myself building a replica of it which i still have...
i was also fortunate enough to own a Pro Lite Craig Campbell in baby blue which i turned into a rep of the Southsea footslap pic with the lavender Uni and tuffs...i still miss it now! Also had a Haro Sport Ron Wilkerson rep too which i loved
Even 8 or 10 yrs ago prices of all this stuff was steep but got utterly ridiculous now...i doubt i will ever build another bike now...
Would love to see any old skate or BMX pics you might have!

Sounds like you've had some cool bikes too!

I'm not sure how to post them here as all the images seem to be blocked? (might be my ad blocking software being a b*tch though) so please feel free to check out my Instagram where I've posted most of them
