    family friend gave me this bmx that he found in the trash!!!! I love this bike, got the tires pumped and rode it around (no brakes so old school foot on the rear wheel stopage).
    I am going to keep it as is but grease everything.

    it is a tuff neck. I thought of using it on my RBBO8 bike but started riding the bike and decided not to touch it.

    Nice! All we find in the trash around here is old beach cruisers that look like they were used as speed bumps. Bent and broken! :D

    Nice score, I am really enjoying my free BMX bike. Slap some tires on that thing and wheel on!

    Your bike looks very similar to an Open Road early bmx bike I picked up a few weeks back. From what I heard Open Road was made by Huffy so it is possible that it is a Pro Thunder variant. I really only bought the bike for the Lester mags but I might bring it back to life with some modern sealed components.

    Here are the cool Lester wheels I peeled off the Open Road. Lots of these Open Roads were sold with Lester mags wheels.
