BMX movies

Recommended Posts

What movies remind you of BMX from the 70's and 80's?

 

Include a picture of the VHS art or movie poster.

 

Also include a reason why if it isn't obvious.

"Over The Edge" 1979

 

Reason: The bad arse attitude of the kids reminds me of terrorizing my neighborhood back in the late 70's/early to mid 80's on our BMX's. Plus Matt Dillon and other ride BMX in the flick.

APES OF BOMB BAY VS THE BARE ALL NAKED BMX GIRLS of BIG BOOBLAND. but i can't say that as i have no way to scan the picture. the same goes to the best poster.

the old skool poster where the SIZZLER STEAK HOUSE gave away WEBCO/MOTOMAG BIKES.

Rick,

 

I looked for those movies, but got blocked by my work filter for PORN!

 

Here is Poltergeist (1982):

 

Reason - Mongoose Bikes!

Wasn't it that girl who says "they're here" in Poltergeist that got the Hutch bike and uniform too? Maybe I'm mixing up some other child actress.
