Whilst walking up London Road in Brighton the other Sunday I saw this pile of BMXs outside a burger shop (Right pic). Instantly it reminded of an image indelibly burnt in my mind from childhood (left pic). In a hurry as usual I managed to whip out my phone and grab a quick snap and that was that.
Wasn’t until today I got chance to compare it to that said page from BMX Action Bike / RAD magazine from about 25 years ago. The comparison is uncanny and goes to show shit don’t change much. The youth still love their BMXs and their burgers, the bikes just got a little less colourful and their owners got a little neater. Love it, long live BMX.
