Wanted: Old school haro/skyway/etc troisers

  • call me a sad b'stard but I've got it in my head I'd like some of those early 80s BMX pants we used to race/trick in. Well I say we - i didn't - but I have a fond place in my heart for them (along with all things BMX 1983-87). i thought they might be good for tricks too providing a little bit of padding. They don't have to be Haro or Skyway, loads of factories produced rad trousers.

    I wondered if anyone knew where i could get these? If they're regularly on ebay I've been missing them. I know they're a bit Shoreditch '03 but there you go.

    Oh yeah if anyone's got some in half-decent nick (ie no gusset perishing please..) and interested in selling some I'm six foot one and I'm tons of fun and I'll pm you with a waistline..

    pajamas.

  • Sad bastard

  • ha!! that was quick........:D

  • Ross at BC pulled a pair out of a box in the basement a coupla weeks ago... Much excitement/hilarity ensued...
    Do they have to be white? Tough colour to get NOS... ;p

  • @ teenslain: no white not imperative at all... hey so this pair at BC..? would they be my size you reckon...?

    I'm getting a bit excited..
