    I rode mine until my knees started hitting the handlebars... And, I could pedal no more... If I was Jockey size, I'd still be Jumping. "Kinda like riding a Bike" You never forget how... lol

    Any Members BMX Distance Jump ? How Far... What Bike ?

    We "aquired" the ladder & plywood from a backyard... "We were little Hoodlums" lol. I put the ladder across the chain at the bottom of the exit ramp. And, laid the plywood on top of it. All I could see was the bottom and top of the ladder as a guide. It was some scary stuff. But, I was an...

    Any Members BMX Distance Jump ? How Far... What Bike ?

    Sorry Clancy... No Pics... We were just a bunch of kids in the mid 70's riding our bikes in a closed Mall parking lot on Sunday. We heel toed the distance to be a little over 37 feet. Behind *Iverson Mall* in Hillcrest Heights Maryland. I was a "Greaser" at the time. Just like in the movie "The...

    That's Funny... I always wanted to put a 455 Buick in a Purple AMC PACER lol ! No, "Really I Do" ha-ha ! I'd like to see one of those guys kids jump their bone stock Yamaha Moto-Bike over 35 feet. And, live to tell about it. I'm bi-polar not suicidal...lol. Those bikes were designed for roundy...

    Joe you are a breath of fresh air compared to all the "Debbie Downers" & "Shunners" on this and, or any vintage BMX Bike Site. Even after these bikes have been restored. They're never worth more than a about $1000.00. Very Low End. I say do as you like and, Thumb your nose at all the Critics &...
