Well you see, Norm, it’s like this…A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

This one here was my baby. Same color and everything.
Mushroom grips. Laid back seat post. Spinner neck. And my seat had a roller bar in the back. About the only thing I could do those was surf, wheelies, bunny hops, and slow speed endos.

Yeah, the 80's were pretty sweet. Pretty much the infancy of so many things. Today's BMX bikes are a big pile of blah. They don't even use mag wheels anymore. Mags were the shit! Never bent one and they took a helluva beating.

That CW is just soooooo drool worthy..The HARO is a bit odd because it has newer style parts on it.. wonder if it is one of the reissue bikes.. My rides back in the day were many.. Dyno Compe 2, a Haro Street Master, Curtiss Freestyler (a cool ass british bike.. same geometry as the old skyway TA which was Hoffman's choice back when he was 15), a Bully, a GT performer... went through 4 sets of skyway mags before i switched over to the Peregrine HP 48's... bars? Dyno drain pipes, the "new" haro bars, CW's, Skyway's with the double top bar, GT's.. seats were countless.. oh yeah, and everything on my bikes ended up being different colors.. wheels, tires, bars, brakes.. my friends used to call my stuff rainbow brite.. Ahhhhhh.... Those bikes hurt me BAD, but I miss them..

My GT vertigo is still at my parents house. It's a 91 or 92 I think. Wonder if it's worth anything?

I had a Pro Performer

I ended up trading it for a KDX80 with bad rings. I fixed it but never ran right. Then again, I was 13.

Bunch of Rich bytches!!

My cheapazz parents got me the Huffy Sigma as a Xmas present in like 1987. That shyt was like $99 in Toys-R-Us and heavy as hell.. I think it would made out of lead lol!



Never did own a 'real' bike. Although I did buy a Schwinn Predator around age 15 with my own dough after I starting working. Finally had the chro-moly frame, light weight 5 star wheels and ACS pro rotor (I think it was called that)..

But even one better I bought a car the day I turned 16 and also got my drivers license.

Hey, my parents were FAAAR from rich. Let's just say there was a Dominican and an Italian guy in Brooklyn who came around with a Chevy Box Van every once and awhile.

You paid them $50-100, and took the bike you wanted.

No questions asked, no test rides, no refunds. That's how I got my Skyway.

But my friend had that Huffy Sigma. And you're right, that was the most craptastic bike ever! That thing weighed about 10lbs less than an anvil. I couldn't believe how heavy it was.
It was hard as hell to bunny hop and getting the front up to wheelie was a chore! And those plastic covers on the wheels did nothing but amplify road noise so all you heard was "Whoaaaaarrr whoooooar whoooarrr" the whole time.

But Huffy had a bike called the Stu Thompson that was pretty sweet. I had one of those for awhile. And then a Saint Tropez before I got the Skyway.
