I just thought I would through this out. I was going through the channels and came across this vintage BMX movie, BMX Bandits on Showtime Extreme Sunday Jan. 10. It's on again tonight @ 8:15. A young Nicole Kidman plays in it. It's just too funny seeing the old gear they had.

Wow, you're right. I saw that movie on HBO when I was a kid. I just went through life always chucking inside about Kidman and SJP's cheesy bike movie, up to now :confused:

In the scenes requiring actual BMX ability you can clearly see it's a guy in a Nicole Kidman wig doing the riding, also if you watch carefully the bikes in the waterslide scene aren't really bikes.............

The movie came to the cinemas in the late days of the GDR (German Democratic Republic), around 1987.
I wathched it more than 5 times. I do remember the catchy tune when they rode through the tubes in the open- air bath was my fellow in the class hours the next weeks.

In this era the GDR's economy was able to react to the astonishing new need in the younger population and built a BMX with coaster brake.

I myself got one from Czechoslovakia and had lots of fun:thumbsup: !
