    Spare time fun!

    Back in the day, I used to be into BMX and would do a little racing here and there. I had a blast and spent most of my Summers riding 20 inch BMX bikes.

    Recently I have gotten into collecting and restoring them from the late 70's to the mid 80's...for fun and for my 12 year old son.

    Here is mine that I just finished...its a 24 inch...this one is newer, but Skyway only made 600 frames,forks and bars. All Chromemoly with graphite wheels.



    This is my boys new favorite! 1984 Hutch pro Racer.



    Heres a few others:

    1981 Supergoose



    1981 Predator Cromo



    1978 Ross apollo



    1984 Diamondback Pacer



    They don't make them like they used to.

    Those are very nice. How is it possible for all of the white parts on the Hutch to look so clean? Did you replace those parts, or was the bike in that good of condition when you found it?

    Were all of those bikes Made in the USA?
