    Gravity Powered BMX- should I do it again?

    Gravity Powered BMX- should I do it again?-gpv-bmx-rad-2.jpg
    So I saw this picture I believe in BMX Action back in the 80's and decided to build one myself. Basically, flipping a BMX frame upside down, seated on the BB shell with pegs on back. Add some of the cool slick freestyle tires and VOILA! Death machine!

    We ran these down Somo, and others with the best crash coming on North Mountain when a friend forgot to tighten his quill stem and having the bike go off into the rocky desert. That would have been a life flight, but we didn't have that then. So some random stranger in a old Chevy pickup got the job done and got him to JCL in Sunnyslope.

    I am thinking of revisiting this for fun. Who is in?

    Go to minute 5 and enjoy what living in the 80's was all about. No *****ing about rock fairy's or hikers. Just riding bikes and having fun. Oh and being rad.

    I remember long boarding down Camelback Mountain as a kid. Barefoot and only wearing shorts.
