That Spesh is pretty damn cool. I dabbled with BMX for a bit but was appalling. I tried riding proper street type stuff as I didn't like skate parks and I've never been much o a trail boss.

Unfortunately my BMX was stolen whilst I was at uni, so that was that as it was insured under the household policy because student insurance was too expensive and my folks wouldn't let me claim for it.

I keep thinking about getting a cruiser as there's a new BMX track near me now and I guess it will be good for fitness and skills. A friend I rode with had an Intense cruiser with sone old Marzocchi forks on it which was pretty cool.

I will make a build thread for it in Reader Bikes 1998 --> (or retro vintage BMX) if folks wanna see it there... :idea: :?:

Plan is now to slowly get bits, If I'm keeping current wheels, I need a now uncool 14mm set of forks, and to size up the biggest chainring I can get to fit on the frame go with the (large) 14t Freewheel

The old carcass!

That's mine 8)
It's an American frame by Take (Time model), only really ride it in the summer with the young mad locals. Given up trying to do crazy stuff on it and just go out for a bit of fun and to watch the young un's as I'm sick of breaking bones :cry:
Snapped all the bones across my foot on a big wall ride crash a couple of years back and vowed never again :lol:

Ah. Kudos for that. The most modern bike in the thread so far. Reassuring to see a brake on there. Mine needs hardware, hard to imagine no brakes! Right attitude, so many ballsy riders out there now. Best to watch em while carefully pushing your own envelope slightly!
