I've just watched BMX bandits with my 5 year old son. The wife bought is for me a few weeks ago for a laugh as i'm a sad old git and loved it as a kid. Its great, plenty of action for the nipper and the riding still stands up. cracking mongoose.

if you aint seen it for a while its well worth a watch, puts me in the mood to watch more old stuff. Next stop Karate kid

the great thing about these films with bmx's in and gear like that, is that you can be 12 years old again :D

bmx bandits
the goonies
lost boys
flight of the navigator
karate kid 1 & 2
ET
and one more that i can't think of the name

all 3 kids dream of the same device and build a space craft out of a fairground ride and have a bubble protect them to go in to space - name the film please :wink:


cheers B :wink:

Got shed loads of old BMX vids...just got to find a VHS player to watch them on lol

For me there are some vids that really standout

Hoffman Head first...Mat doing the 900 and attempting flips on dirt all in 1990!

Ride on...amazing Vic Murphy street sections, I think this vid was early 90s

Props road fools one. This video changed BMX a LOT, groundbreaking stuff, especially the Levan street riding

Little Devil Seek and destroy. Brilliant music and some amazing sections

Anthem. Big east coast trails through the whole vid, good local riders riding some crazy lines. For me one of the best videos out there if yoru into trail riding

Anyone remember the BMX scene in a film called mad mission part 4? Total revelation at the time as all we'd had till then was a Burner advert :P
