    Hi

    Anyone here into BMX bikes??

    I have been looking into them and am trying to get an old school one to get out and about on again.

    I used to have a couple as a kid, then got into mountain bike, but am liking the BMXs again.

    Does anyone know where I could get one at a decent price or where to look, alot of the forums I have seen are abroad and not UK based.

    Cheers
    Nilz

    Cheers guys

    Im more after a Raleigh Burner or a Mag Burner if I can, but the prices on them are crazy!!

    I will not be using it all the time, so dont want to put money into it for it to be gathering dust.

    Dave, 33 aint old mate!!

    Im older than that and am looking for one.

    My sons just had a bike for Xmas, so I want to get one to go riding with him and so I can keep up with him, rather than running and shouting at him LOL!!

    Ive been on that site too, some mint examples on there.

    Me n my boy (10) have built up an old GT frame with new parts for him 2 hack about on, was good fun! Back in the day I had a Raleigh super tuff burner and loved it. Think they are remaking them now?

    Used to be heavily into BMXing, although never had a good bike until my Commencal Village Ltd Ed. I did have an '82 Supergoose, given free by a woman whose son passed away. She thought my brother and I would have more use for it.

    Digging jumps in the rain....ahhh the memories.

    Haha, Ruption. Excellent. They always had weird names in the mid-late 90s. I had a Dyno Compe (street on sticky KHE Lamellos) and a Haro Shredder (dirt bike with knobblies) (and the Supergoose), then the Commencal. Commencal was the best for everything. My mate (rich kid) had a Mongoose DMC which weighed about as much as my Audi.
