It occurred to Me I would like a vintage freestyle Bike like People had in The 80s specifically, not 90s. Just turned 32 and been gaining weight and figure it might also get me out riding etc. I remember getting a Western Flyer Freedom 2 in like 87 or 88 but it was stolen out of garage in broad daylight very shortly after getting it, cops even went to the "chop shop" and retrieved my mag wheels etc from the Culprits the very day and luckily Parents sprung for another bike soon after at a bike shop, A used Redline (Spoiled) BMX Style! Wasnt long before I had The "free flowing" crank or whatever and was happy as it was a sweet Bike also. I want to find an old "rider", not a show bike or Museum piece, what should I expect to pay Today for a vintage freestyle bike from the late 80s? Are these bikes incredibly hard to find now in whole/ridable condition? May settle for a 90s bike though but definitely dont want a department store bike but rather something a bit more rare to be proud of even if it does have scuffs etc. Took some pics of some old pics to share. Also borrowed a pic from an online source as I am standing in front of The WF Freedom2. Can anyone make an Identification year of production on My old redline? It does have mods though they shouldnt throw Anybody off. Those were "The Bikes"! Like all the "bells and whistles" the freestyle bikes have! Want something old!

Times change man. But I know what you mean. Personally I'm very fond of the good frames they made back in the days. A bit heavy but almost unbreakable.
