Those into BMX and hot tunes in the 80's

just been thinking about my childhood lol, I loved BMX, the tricks and stuff.

Andy Ruffell, Tim March were heroes to us LOL

One guy was god though...Bob Haro

Just found this, I think it's a clip from a video I used to have called BMX lightening wheels

I can't believe the guy is about 50 now

    they used to live more or less next to Fitzwimarc school in Rayleigh Essex, - they had a half pipe in their back garden, - i was into bmx'ing when i was quite young, but skateboarded from about 11 till i was about 16.

    I skated with Fraser sometimes (he had a bit of an ego tbh! :)), - his brother Craig was much older, didnt know him personally but he was pretty well known for his pro bmx at the time :)

    those skyway wheels bring it all back tho diamond back etc etc, - god this is going back so far, its like another life

    I used to walk into a room full of people & wonder if they liked me..... Now I look around & wonder if I like them

    bmx stunts havn't really improved much over the years have they? i expect this to be fairly laughable, sorta like old football, the likes of maradona, pele, jimmy johnston etc were great players THEN but none REALLY had the foot work of ronaldinho. but better players in there day.

    but yeah, the vids not bad though gotta laugh at the bikes OLDSCHOOL! hehe
