Old School BMX on TV and Film, movies & music videos

Recommended Posts

I thought I would do some screen grabs from film and television shows that have vintage BMX cameos, etc.

I didn't have E.T. so I'll have to get those up later. If you know other films and TV shows with BMX sightings let me know and I'll try hunt them down to post a screen grab.

Is that a Sears Screamer in BNB?

 

"Over the Edge". Had some cool bikes in it but I could never make out exactly what they were.

I was watching Karate kid I and Ralph Machio was rockin' what looked like a Mongoose 24, great screen shot after Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morishta) restores it for him after the bullies pushed him down the hill on it.

Last night I was watching, "Boys in da Hood" and there is a part where a bunch of kids roll up on an ice cream truck. It looks like two of the kids are on old school bmx bikes? If anyone has that movie and can grab that, I think it would be funny. It's in the first part of the movie when Trey and Doh boy are still young...o ya, Goonies has some old school bmx bikes too.

That's Tommy Brackens. I know my bro any where, plus Anthony is not that tall.

Whoopsy! Is Sewell across from him? He has slanted eyes and Tommy has his eyes closed in that pic, thought it was Anthony.

 

My Bad,

I was watching 'COPS' last night , and while they were arresting some punk in a suburban street, another kid was watching from the back ground sitting on an OS-BMX with red tuffs.

There was a scene in "Twilight Zone the movie" where the kid could make any wish come true and wished for his Mom not to have a mouth...? He was riding a E.T. Kuwahara as well.

PS: How do we know that's a two-four and not a KOS? (not saying it isn't a two-four mind you, just askin')

 

b/c those are definitely 24" wheels.

 

check out some kos pics.. you'll see how the wheels fill out the frame more.

 

another thing about the KK 2/4. check out the closer shots of that bike in the movie and you can see that they totally black out the mongoose name on all the stickers.

Does anyone know if any of these kids are members here or any of the other sites?

 

Any of them grow up to be famous?

 

thanks......

 

 

That kid on the wheelie has mad skills! I love the opening jump...

One of my best friends here made this video for Seaweed, and it's funny because he never rode a BMX bike in his life.

My guess is that it was Seaweed's idea or my dumb ass JD, bong and BMX stories. :)

 

 

I'm working on finding clips for all the stuff listed... getting Uncommon Valor now, I have On Any Sunday in the garage. I would also like to know who the wheelie kid was.

It was ON Any Sunday that made my jaw drop and go nutty over BMX. I was riding cycles at Indian Dunes when they had the Bicycle Cross races, but I never managed to see one. :( Man did it suck to hit a long stretch of pure sand at that place, my skills were marginal at best so I stayed clear of the tracks.
