Funnily enough Dr_H so did i, I remember the day that my dad found the classified ad. in the back of the local newspaper (i always had second hand bikes as a kid) and we went to meet some bloke at a car park. I rode it around then my dad bartered him down from £35 to £30 (for cash)
I have been lurking http://bmxmuseum.com/ for inspiration before searching ebay.

^^ That's a great site, i've been browsing through those early eighties BMX pics numerous times.
I would have loved to still own the Skyway i rode back in the days, this model to be exact:
http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/skyway/55424
Man did they build some beauties back then.

This here being the bike i have right now, it's a transporter bike on which they used to ride milkcans around, around 60+ years old.

My wife owns a 1963 Sears Spaceliner bike of which i don't have a pic at hand, i'll try and remember to post a photo of it another time.

My endeavours have culminated in this.. Sunday BMX
Kiddo is on the cusp of outgrowing a 14" and a 16" is a bit big for him so its going to be a Christmas prezzy.



Good old Santa! You work your ass off all year to pay for the finer things in life and he takes all the credit.

Its a "design feature" i broke it in an attempt to make my environment appear more industrial for my fit pics, the mould at the bottom of the drainpipe is painted on.

Adds a touch more realism to the 'grim up-north' vibe which you have captured there Thumbs Up
