What did BMX riders wear back then? I know it wasn't skinny jeans and a tee shirt.

I'm so glad I haven't got my bike stolen.

skinny jeans were a fad in the 80's too, mostly i see guys in cut-off shorts, t-shirts and some Oakley Frogskins.

Actually, I remember having girls stop me in the halls to roll my pants legs because that is what was cool. Hornrim glasses were cool if they had print all over the frames, and you had to have the string holding them around your neck. I was wearing cutoffs I had just had my sister help me with and was out riding and a girl from my school stopped me. We talked for ten min or so, and I thought she was checking out my bike the whole time, till I realized my nuts were pushed out the bottom of my shorts. I gave her a chicken heart before I knew what it was, haha.

Refs: Tito24, RiverSideRider, Stussy, Nettyspaghetti, Daniel24, Freddydapice, BrokenBMX, SuperstarDK, HardBMX_Tim. There's more, but I'm too lazy to look them up, haha.

We wore skate clothes in the late 80's/early 90's. Lot's of Vision Street Wear, Skate Rags, 2Hip, etc.

I started riding when we transitioned from neon colors and FREESTYLE RAD BMX!!! to dark, grunge clothing. Club Homeboy was on the come up, as well as AggroRag, and riding crews like Plywood Hoods. It was also right at that time when street riding REALLY started to get big.

Sorry guys, were were throwing bar spins back in 1991 off picnic tables.

Here's me at 14 with 1st generation Hammer Shin Guards

neon and pink in the 80s, especially in racing. 90s is about the only style that make sense, regardless of the topic at hand.

In midschool bike rides you.

This post is old but it doesn't really matter in this section. Look at Darryl Nau...he still rocks 80's clothes.

Winter is over-rated
