    I had initially planned on making this a one-off slideshow. However if you all want to put together a more comprehensive list of bikes, I will publish another feature on these no doubt. It was really fun and brought me back to the radical rick days of bmx plus etc…

  16. bmx1967

    I have an older Badd mini frame sn # has only 3 numbers. I would like to find out what year it is… I heard back then that they only made 1000 of them. Would like any info one this…. Thank you ….

  17. Being an eighties kid this bought back so many memories. I would have loved a BMX, however my parents bought me the girl bikes 🙁 I have three sons now and they ride Fly bikes (think thats what they’re called) and Fit BMX. Expensive, but awesome bikes. They had GT’s also and they didn’t last long..

  18. only two words…….LOVE IT:)

    I only ever had 1 “factory” bike. No clue as to who made it, it came with dirt motorcycle, shocks systems on front and rear, even had a faux gas tank etc. usted to break the back wheel axle at least twice a week lol.
    Every other bike i ever owned was my own creation, loved my 20″ schwinn bmx with 10 speed gears. Most diffacult part of building that one is derailers weren’t designed, with enough spring tension so chain had a habit of coming off on jumps lol till i painstakingly tightened the tension not easy to do without factory style tools.
