    i’ve always wanted one but at my height i look silly on a 26″ so 20″ would be daft

    this makes me really want one

    I want one as my kids are into boarding and scooting, and I hate standing there like an idiot, but don’t know what to get!

    look at wethepeople fit etc completes

    I’ve bought a felt off eBay for £20, the frame looks good as do the wheels, I plan on spraying these and the bars. I will replace everything else with bits off crc, whole thing should come in for less than £100.

    Race or trick? For race pure are amazing looking bikes. Ted James bmx frames are also bloody incredible 🙂

    I used to ride bmx a few years back, wish I still had my kink for those odd days of playing around on one.

    Sunday:

    Then bought this kink frame off a friend:

    I need one! But the longer frames rarely come up

    When I was about 8 or 9 years old I spent a whole summer thinking about this bike and very little else (the exceptions being Michelle Lovering and cider)

    I set out to buy the cheapest full cromo complete i could and ended up with this for £270:

    I am 40 in a few weeks. Hence the arrival of that baby above. 😉

    This was mine and I wish I didn’t sell it despite me never riding really. Was an awesome spec and looked the tits.

    I sold my Model C the other day as well so I feel like I’ve said goodbye to my childhood. I’ll probably end up building my dream bmx (barcode, trendkill or a deluxe) when I’ve got my house sorted out properly though.

    I love bmx’s that look like this

    My kids (both early teens) will disown me!!

    2013 rerun of the old classic. There was one of these in the window of Armstrongs bike shop in the ‘boro when I was a kid and I so lusted after it. Ended up with a Firebird Freestyler a couple of years later instead. Would still a love PK Ripper now…although they’ve sullied the name by making some ridiculous fixe ****t bike and calling it a PK Ripper more recently.

    The stock KMC half link chain snapped on mine today, 3rd run in at the skatepark, twatted both knees into top tube 🙁 hasty drive home & a rummage in the spares bin produced an old SS KMC510HX, so fitted that and had an hour of mini radness 🙂 My sons stock KMC chain also was found to have several links with breaks in, luckily his didn’t snap on him!

    I had a beautiful chromed Tange Hotheart stickered up for Scotia BMX, wish I had some pics 🙁 Long gone now.

    How can a bmx need “a lot” of work?! 😀

    Slight hijack. I’m looking for a bmx video on youtube, starring a gothic looking rider with skinny jeans. He hurts himself quite spectacularly jumping off roofs. Anyone know his name?
