Regarding all the BMX talk.
Gearing up to get ready to get the vaccine soon and was looking for my health card and came across a box with some pics from way back .
This was probably 1983 or 1984 ,not sure what the whip is but I fucking spent a lot of time on it.

Those Sassetti look real nice. I have a pair of the RLPL made in Italy with that nail on leather tag on the sole and I know I researched it and at least according to what I found that was the high end stuff made by Sassette to be near EG level.
XIII, eh? $12.99 for Sassettis? Cool. I think this was the first pair I've kopped with their own name on.
@Sartoriamo I like how you always spin a yarn about your thrifting adventures / process.
I appreciate you.
Hey man, thanks for that. Always love a good story. I guess I "enjoy" the process/context (almost) as much as the kop. Even when it's as frustrating as hell. But better still when we prevail.
That is the Swedish flag 🇸🇪
Oops, my bad. Sheesh, the jacket even says "Swedish melancholy at its driest". Duh. Too much surströmming, I guess.
when you leave the house at the crack of dawn to drive 2+ hours to an estate sale only to find out the owner decided to keep the only thing you came for
Well dang, I hope there was something else worth kopping that didn't show up in the sale previews.

Man that shit is for the inbred fuckers in the northern parts of the country. I won't get anywhere near that putrid fucking fish.

Holy shit, dude! That thing is rare in the US. That's a 1983 Kynast BMX 2000 Super Star.
@Thrift Vader Check this out.

there was but it was already walking out the door even though I thought I got there an hour early. keeping a mental note on this sale company for sure.

was finally able to negotiate a better price on this rare Karl Springer pedestal tho so the day wasn’t an entire waste
