mmm... Sting-Ray! That was sweet in the day!
Anyone besides me ever buy a skateboard from 7Eleven?
I just went back to my childhood... thanks! I had a Sting Ray with a plastic gas tank on it. I WISH I had pictures of that.
I only wish my brother and I still had the old pics of us jumping that bike on the track all us neighborhood kids built on the Fully Loop back in the day. I loved riding that place.
It's that time again....
If you are new to STR, time to post a few OLD SCHOOL pics!
If you are a regular, find a few more pics that you would like to share!
Biking related.... Prom pics... The Hippie days.... Just post 'em! :beer:
well, I'm not sure about how "old school" this is, but for me it goes back. I started riding in 96' when I was 13. Here is a picture of my first bike - an Australian made Living-X "team ozziroo". I knew the owner of the company,... one of the founders of Gateway Computers who sold his stock and moved on in the early 90's. He hooked me up with a few bikes and drug me to the races all over the midwest.
... this next one is of my first SoBe team bike back in 98-99 or so. Gotta love the "afterburner fade"
and here's me on it at the 98' Norba National in Redwing MN... at the ripe age of 15. :wave:
If you guys laugh...I will really be pissed!!! This wasn't quite 20 years ago but pretty close...early 90's racing at Fontana...note the old school knee pads and tight a$$ shorts...Hey! this is how we did it back then kids!!!! LOL
I think this one was at the 1993 or 1994 Norba Nationals in Snow Summit...still with the tights and hockey knee pads...lol
here's a few oldies
These are some of the oldest I have. I lost a bunch of film pics moving from Fl to GA back in the early 90's I'd love to have back.
Somewhere in N. GA around the year 2k. The bike in the foreground was a friends Old skool Turner XCE with a 4" Zocchi Mr T dual crown fork. Other bikes up top were a Bullit, 1st gen Specy Big Hit and my Thermo plastic GT.
Me racing a DS race at Fontana dam jam in TN.
Before freeriding was freeriding
Some stuff we built in the woods
My friend dave about to take a 5+ foot drop to flat
Me on the sissy line

John... El Rolo- Thanks for posting!
John- Nice 3.5" Red Judy "DH" fork..

The One-Handed Turner Bed Huck

Thread request brought to you by Zippo (why people take action shots thread)....
yeah, this is the one. it has my mind in a frenzy to dig through some old photos...in the attic in Rhode Island no doubt.
My old bikes:
Here's a pic of me racing the rockhopper series in vacaville.
Old school classics! :wave:
Mammoth - NORBA 1986 Championships
I use to be fast!
These are from the early sixties.....
That's me on the back, ready to prowl the neighborhood looking for some sweet jumps :lol:
You gotta love that 88 degree headtube angle :?:
OK, this isn't bike related, but should be good for some self-deprecating humor. Of course I am the goofiest looking one in the pic, so I shouldn't even have to point out which one that is... #-o
Dud e! big props to you ...your were rockin that $hit way back...but that last one reminds me of "El Jefe- the night rider"
Aww hell, just found these on the old computer. Not a lot of action when you get caught in a late spring snow storm somewhere in the Laguna Mountains....
Man, I loved that bike.
