View Full Version : BMX Bikes!

I have always loved the look of a good BMX bike.

This is my 11 y/o Haro Blammo. It's an absolute Battle wagon. He rides it to school daily so it has been laying on my deck all winter. Back brake is stiff and I can't seem to fix it but otherwise it keeps going. For the most part I ignore it. Lube the chain and wipe the bike down 2 or 3 times a year.

My older boy had a Redline Proline (black and red). We used it as partial trade for his GT MTB. It was a great bike a super light compared to the Haro.

i've got a set of chatsworth motomag 2's that need a little TLC, if anybody has interest. great shape...true & all webbing intact, need stripping & rear coaster internals.

cast magnesium! ultralight (or not). no, not my bikes in the photos. it is me in the air though (or not).

Here's mine. It's been my bike of choice this week.

I always wanted a Redline back in the day. Stu Thompson was the man. First time I saw a Redline Cyclocross bike it made me chuckle. There's a little BMX track right off one of the bike paths here. I always toy with the idea of getting a cruiser and taking some jumps.

I have a pre-Redline Redline. Does that count? Back in the 70's before the Redline name came to be, the same Japanese manufacturer, I believe it was Kawamura, built their first top of the line chromoly BMX frames. I got mine with the Nishiki name on it in Canada. A year or two later, the same identical frame was sold with the Redline name. I still have it today, my daughters both still ride it.
