  1. im not a freestyle expert by any means, but i really dig the way this bike looks. i also talked to woody itson a bit when he came over and saw the bike, he said that voris designed the bike first, and then the woman who owned Free Agent struck a deal with him afterwards to call it a 'Free Agent' frame before it was released as a VDC. woody also said that he only remembers seeing the frames stickered VDC, not Free Agent anyway, i got the frame as a survivor with just surface rust, so i gave it a bath and built it back up in a sort of 'skatepark' style. i tried to use all similarly used survivor parts too, the plate was nos tho, courtesy of truly odd Free Agent free flight frame Hutch pro bars Bottema fork GT seat post Tange 320 headset Kashimax aero seat Shimano Dx pedals Tuf neck clamp Pro neck stem Takagi 180mm opc Sugino chainring Tuff wheel 2's w alloy flange Comp 3 tires blue grey green Dia compe 901 brake w tech 4 lever KMC chain
  2. Great movie! Based on a true story. Has anyone else seen this? I tried searching this site to see if there was a topic already but I didn't see one.
  3. I’m thinking about getting a bmx but every bmx I’ve ridden feel tiny and uncontrollable, should I get a bigger size or just get used to the small feeling of bmx?
  4. Hello everybody, I am new person in this forum. I am good riding lover. I love freestyle a lot myself – This inspires me to select the BMX freestyle bike for stunts. I used to freestyle in my college days and it was unlimited fun with my friends.
  5. i was just talking to a buddy about some BXC stuff and he mentioned that he still had the BXC bikes he and his brother bought 30 years ago. when he sent me the pics i instantly noticed that they were freestyle frames and i mentioned that i'm not familiar with BXC making freestyle frames but had no idea what they were. he then sent me back a reply that Pat Scanga (from Bicycle X-change) sent him stating that they were indeed BXC freestyle bikes. i know that the race frames were made by Voris Dixon (VDC) and had looptails, different dropouts, different top tube piercing, etc. but wanted to know if anybody knew anything about these BXC freestyle frames? or had any info to share. they kinda resemble a GT but its obvious they're not. please discuss.
  6. This is a flyer / registration sheet for the 1986 West Coast Freestyle Contest in Oxnard, CA.
  7. So, pretty much the first thing I do when i first get my hands on any Freestyle bike is... an Endo! Usually one of the first tricks we try to learn, and also gives you a great sense of the bikes overall geometry. Plus they look freakin' RAD.... So let's use this thread to post up pics of all kinds of ENDOs. Post up pics of you (preferably on your bike(s).... ....but also your friends... shots at contests.... and even favorite magazine shots. Here goes.... Endo on the 83 Freestyler... The 87 Kuwi... GT
  8. Was at a swap and found these pics that were getting ready to be thrown away. A seller was emptying boxes of stuff out on his table...the things he thought were trash at the bottom he'd throw away. I just happen to glance over and see him looking at pics and throwing them back in the box. I caught a flash of one of the bike pics and asked to see what they were. These are the few I found. Looks like 1985-86....pretty sure they're from Long Beach, CA.
  9. Hey guys. I feel like it has been ages since I posted a new build — I guess it has. Well, like I usually do - I'm never rushing through my bike builds. I kinda waited until I had all the "just-right" parts to get this one together - so that I can enjoy the combination - and the ride-ability of it. — I was lucky enough to get an original-finish (paint & decal) 1984 Haro Master frame & fork about 2-3 years ago. It's been sitting around waiting to get built for a while. this one was USA-made in the Torker Factory. The whole build is all original finish — No restored parts anywhere on this bike. — In 1984, there were three different versions of the Haro Master — just within that one year... This one is the first gen. of the three versions. Actually, not too many are accounted for in the community. This particular frame set has all of the early features from the early batches — before the chevron stampings began, before tubing sizes changed (from smaller to bigger), before coaster bracket was moved up, and other small changes, etc. Generation 1 and 2 were still made by Torker. The frame set is essentially the same as an 83 Haro Freestyler - but with an upgraded solid gusset — and was the very first bike in a long line of awesome Haros to wear the "Master" name. I was kinda bent on getting a white one too - since my 83 Freestyler is chrome. And White paint was sort of the iconic symbol in the 84 line. — That being said, I didn't want to do another cookie-cutter "Bob Haro" replica build like most people do when they build an 84 Master, although they are impressive and it makes sense since he was the man to spread the good word of freestyle back then. I really wanted to make this bike my own with parts from the mid 80s that came out around the same time + or - a year or two. This build uses parts ranging from 82-86 (centering around 1984). I built it as though it had been assembled in 84 and upgraded over time as more and more functional freestyle / bmx parts became available. I'm really embracing the specific level of aging and patina on the finish of this bike - using most parts with similar signs of use in the original finishes. The little nicks and chips here and there really bring these parts together in a nice way - and finish off the bike just the way i like it. Enjoy some pics.
