              Those Rucci wheels would go great on a............JUNKER! Nobody would notice the junker.

                Those Schwinn's are just a bit before my time. I mean I do remember seeing those around. Thankfully I was in the era when BMX really took off. I had several cool bikes. A Black Diamond not to be confused with a diamond back. I also had a Redline, mongoose super goose, a PK Ripper and a RaceInc 24 inch Stadium bike. There were more but cant remember all of them.

                  Its like an ugly chick dying her hair green. It helps to take the focus off her face.

                        Me too except a majority of the kids where I lived built their BMX bikes from parts laying around or what could be found at the town dump (yes, they let us kids go in and pick from time to time, it was the late '70's). Looking at the Crate bikes, I see a number of parts that look awfully similar to what we had used. I sometimes wonder if we unknowingly parted a crate or two? :(

                        As for those wheels.......aside from being fugly, a majority of the look like it wouldn't take much to knock the center out of it.

                          Mine were built by swapping parts and whatnot. The Redline I had had a red alloy rear wheel a blue front wheel and a set of gold alloy bars. Had 3 piece Hutch cranks and a pretty nasty gooseneck. Cant remember the brand that was. Also had skyway tuff wheel IIs and a bunch of other parts. Back then it was all about having a light bike. I could pick up my Redline with my pinky. It was very light. Took it over to my dads house and he insisted I put it on his back porch 2 stories up and someone stole it. Pissed me off.

                            Shoot, I had a Columbia frame for my bike, sucker was HEAVY. BUT, my bike was the only one in my circle of friends that the frame didn't break.

                            The 24 inch Raceinc I had I was going to jump up a set of 3 steps and hit the bottom one and broke the frame up in the front where the forks go through. That was probably a 1200.00 bike back then. Funny thing is I'm 50 and can still do all the tricks I used to do. It just hurts more now than it did back then. I remember when I landed my first 360 spin off a jump down at the park. Had tons of people watching. That was a cool day. I have loads of BMX stories lol. I had a friend that lived a mile from my house he was sponsored by Team Murry. Those were the cheapo Kmart bikes but they suited his up nicely with lots of alloy parts. He was a good guy to know. When they upgraded his stuff for his team. I got the old stuff.

                            This was the Black Diamond I had. Notice the gussets welded in everywhere. At the time I did not know it was made by Ashtabula. I just liked it because it was a squatted frame.

                              Usually I'm quite flexible when it comes to creative design. Until now...these wheels are just some ugly ghetto shit.

                                I couldn't afford a Krate type bike even working my butt off with a paper route. $110 could have been $110,000 for all it meant to me. I had a 1966 Copper Sting Ray I bought used for $5. Later I bought a Schwinn Varsity 10 speed for $35 because it was easier to lug around the big bag of papers. As luck would have it I was about 9 months ahead of the 10-speed wave. All I had to do was switch to the under-handle bars and I was the coolest. I have a few Sting Rays I'm working on now.

                                  I love those wheels! As I typed that I threw up in my mouth a little.
                                  I had a Pea Picker.

                                    Speaking about those ridiculous wheels, I think the vast majority of them would not be able to support the weight of a car, at least not a real car and good luck trying to clean them! A complete joke!
