Mags, Checker Board & Highlights

Sorry for the 80s assault this morning, but I was on a roll and figured these posts held hands rather nicely (check the wrist-wear in a few of the shots). I wasn't even really old enough to partake in this culture in the 80s. By the time I got my first real BMX (read: non-Huffy from K-Mart), RAD was already out of print. I'm not going to bore you with one of my rants and drop a bunch of nostalgic rhetoric on you about being young, carefree kids and getting rad. I'm just going to point you over to this awesome Flickr gallery where you can find these images, and many more like them, of BMX culture in its heyday. Rip it!
