Name: Rainer Schadowski Hometown: Karlsruhe, Germany Started riding BMX in: 1980 Number of bikes in the collection: Currently 61 and counting
Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Rainer Schadowski: It evolved from my habit keeping bikes and gear I had raced and never sold. Then my Dad added more bikes and gear he got from retired racers and all of a sudden it was a collection. That was in the mid to late 90s.
Hi all, for those interested, I share details of a new BMX History project I am working on with Redline Bicycles and company founder, Linn Kastan. Redline Foundations looks back on Linn’s story during the early years - his entry into the emerging BMX scene and the founding of the Redline brand - arguably the most innovative of the 1970s and 80s era. The project brings together a community of ex-Redline riders, industry figureheads, ad ex-employees to tell the story of the brand through video, features, and a dedicated Redline history website.
We launch the project with a unique proposition. For those who appreciate and collect BMX hardware,

What's up BMX Fam! Very Pumped on this new video series we are starting which is going to be the building of Dylan's first ever Old School BMX Bike. He dug up one of my old General Hustler Pro frames and is now gonna build the whole thing out. This will be a lot of fun to build with my son and it's going to be a badass looking bike as he is going for the all black look.
SE Bikes is proud to present this awesome video: “Mike Buff in His Own Words”. Buff was one of the original pioneers of freestyle BMX in the early ‘80s. He toured the country with the BMX Action trick team, performing shows introducing freestyle BMX to the world.
Here is an ancient "killer dude" VHS Tape video - filmed in 1985-1986 tape transferred to digital by us. Early extreme sports in video form for entertainment with cheesy music clothes hair and everything. Some contest / comp / competition footage as well as demos and freestyle events at bike shops. Pretty killer. I had some of the same clothes back in the mid-80's too.
