I used to really be into BMX back in the 80's. Mongoose,GT,HARO,CW,ELF,HUTCH etc...I call those the golden years of BMX, great times.

​Yup, i really like those too, although it is quite hard to get your hand on of them nowadays, unfortunately.

I still have a few left from my day. I have a complete 1987 CW and a 1988 Haro Master. I also have a wall of parts from various bikes over the 80's.

Wow, now i am a bit jealous, to be honest :D You should check them (https://www.bmx-forum.com/forums/general-bmx-forum.18/) out. A lot of freaks over there with a similar big history with bmx. For me as youngster it is always cool to read those stories, and, of course, look at those damn awesome bikes. However a bit said, that no one else here seems to be riding bmx / mountainbike /or whatever has wheels. I thought it is a rather popluar activity among body builders as it is (from my understanding) quite efficient. How come?

BMX/FREESTYLE was a passion in my child hood years. The products back then were stellar in quality and when you bought something you got your dollars worth.
I think for some it could be the competition just like in bodybuilding. I always wanted to come in first.
