Cannot see if anyone has said thisâ¦â¦
what a good fun thread! :icon_thumright:
Brilliant Scott........Ive still got an Evil Knieval stunt bike......best toy Ive ever had.....was made to last forever as I use to jump it down the stairs and everything.
yep the raleigh vektar!
a bmx with.................................a radio! lol!
a really expensive bodykit on a burner with added tunes! (that worked badly!)
probably worth a fortune now though!
yep! had one of those!
This was my 1st ever BMX - Kuwahara ET.......mint!!
here is my first! (wish i still had it!)
and my last before it got nicked....
What about these?? Not to many people remember these, I loved them.
This is gonna be a long night..........lol
Pea shooter.. used with dry peasâ¦.. or chewed up paper and fired at the school classroom ceiling.
If you did this, think they maybe still there now!!
Here's a blast from the past, now that Chez and Mark have confessed to their first bikes, I thought I better do the same.
my first BMX was this Mongoose (and yes it was pink) Lol. Then it was on to the Grifter, Bad Ass 80s style
and who can forget the Ninja Scootech!!
aah! the old raleigh grifter!
not seen one in years!
when i had my bmx all the big boys were riding around on grifters and these!
the raleigh bomber, like an early mountain bike!
my first wheels! proper leg power, non of that battery shizzle in the '80s
a go kart
How about some Domino Rally, if that doesn't teach kids patience nothing will.
i built it up so many times, to knock it with my hand near the end and watch half it collapse. Grrrrrr
And good old Simon, I think it was mentioned in an earlier post, used to dig on this as well.
Dont think the old chopper has been mentioned?
and The six million dollar man was ace (esp when it got of with your sisters sindy doll...)
This was the game of my childhood.
Used to play a game of that with my Grandpa at 6pm every night.
My Mam's still got this, it still works and my son plays it everytime we visit. He also loves these 2 which also still work :icon_thumright:
@Ultra Violent - Centurions was totally ace. Get Fresh with Gaz Top and Gilbert the Alien - quality Saturday morning telly
This thread is really bringing some memories back now
Thanks for posting this, as it's just reminded me of possibly the most coolest game EVER!!! (at the time obviously)
Cannot believe this hasn't been posted or spoken of yet.....the amount of batteries I got through on this thing! lol
The Tomy Turnin' Turbo Dashboard
Those bikes are ace!!!
I had a good selection, a raleigh mag flyer, i think it was called, then a racer, a couple of other BMX's, my bro had a grifter and a chopper too, prepare for pain if the brakes fail on those tho!!!
Does anyone still have any old skool BMX's??
Ive been after one for a while (at a decent price).
Does anyone remember these?
Yep remember them. What do you mean as in Old Skool? Like the Burner and Kuwahara?
I bought some these for the boys not that long ago as I could remember them from when I was young but they never got them. I opened them all up took everything out and placed it in the finger of a latex glove and what a bang it makes.
Awesome thread! I can't remember the name of my first bike but I do remember it only had a front brake, I know now that the rear brake was activated when you stopped pedaling but try explaining that to a 4 year old. I also remember going down very a steep hill, using the front brake and turning myself into a human dart. I got a big boy bike with rear brakes not long after that.
I'm hoping MASK and Centurions make a Transformers-esque come back with a movie. The CGI available today would make for an awesome film - just don't let Michael Bay anywhere near it!
Don't forget Lego either, back when you could make anything out of a set of random blocks as opposed to today when there's that many custom bits you can only make what is on the box or very similar variants of it
Yes Brodster, thats exactly what I mean, the old Raleigh Burners.
I would love something like that but the prices for some are just so ridiculous!
I'm sure the majority of us all started on Duplo though, which would have been even further back in the day? lol
Then moved onto Lego...and obviously some Meccano.
Edit: because I totally forgot about Stickle Bricks! lol
I must have missed Duplo, Lego was the first of the two that I can remember.
Meccano was awesome!!
Will this be ok as something we played with when we were youngâ¦â¦
Itâs a 1970/80s Snow Sledge!!
You were showing off, if you had one with anything to do with the Jubilee on it!!
Given the nature of this forum I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Scalextric yet. My brother and I got a standard set for Xmas with F1 cars included but my prized possessions were this
Martini Porsche 911 Turbo
I used to race them against my brother for hours on a rainy day who was using this
Ford Escort Mexico RS1600
Top effort everybody, I bet your using some off the old grey matter you thought had long gone, I know I am!!
Big up to Kwistof for remembering that old Tomy toy, that was the nuts!!
That totally reminded me off these, I thought I was the cooler than a penguins penis Check out the graphics, Wow, no expense used. Lol.
Loving this old skool vibe.
I still have this, and it still works!
I had one of these too.
Rereleased, I got one the other year.
My stash as collected from my mums place about 6 years ago. lol
My missus brought it over the other year
Nice one JoJo, BMX grandstand, hours off fun (till the batteries ran out)
Oranoco, thats an impressive set up, I had to make do with this........
check out the Man Perm on the Hoff, If that doesn't scream FUN, I don't know what will.
i had Othello - much easier playing the puter versions cos i kept missing counters that should have been turned over :-/
aside from games, here's ablast : anyone remember the Dr Who collectable cardboard characters you'd get in Weetabix etc? there'd be a strip of about 4 i think (more in the bigger packs i think) and there was a simple game baord printed on the back of the packs that you used them on.
i also was mad about the PG Tips trading cards (yeeeeeaaarrs ahead of the current trading card fad, lol) and collected crip packets (Tudor!!!!) to get some Flutterbyes and Wear Em-Scare Ems!!
edit : fk's sake, i've just calculated how old i am :-(
Since we're getting close to the release off the next Gen consoles, a little reminder where it all started.
You legend! I was trying to think what that was called, after reading this thread earlier I have been trying to remember its name all day.
When your riding your Grifter, playing Scalectrix, rocking Connect 4, building your Stickle brix or watching Centurions
You gotta look cool..................
Nice one Chez, well apart from the Wham T-shirt that is. Lol.
Yup, Campri stuff used to be big up here as well, Ski wear for up the High Street, who would've thunk it??!!
I'm a bit off a Sneaker Freak so it's good to see some off the old styles again.
I've still got a pair off these, they were re-released for the 20th anniversary, God I feel old sometimes............
Chez I found one of those exact carts in an old shed last year , still works perfectly. Hadn`t been used for 20 years
oh the nostalgia!
and what self respecting 80's kid could be without his weapons?
you would get tazered and an asbo for these nowadays lol!
I had the Rambo knife,had a Titanium tip as well.
