FRIDAY RANDOMS: Nice Motor Mate!

BMXers with bangin' rides

This week for FRIDAY RANDOMS I thought it’d be pretty sick to take a look at the cars some of you drive, we get to see your Nice Set Ups quite often but a lot of BMXers out there are also car enthusiasts. I think the adrenaline junkie within craves the excitement you feel when you’re sitting behind the wheel going sideways around a corner, or even just gunning it in a straight line. BMXers like to go fast and take risks, what can I say? We’ve got a quality mixture of bikes and sweet rides for you to feast your eyes upon this week, hope you enjoy ’em!

Adam Laskey.


This isn’t Adam’s car but who cares? It’s his brother’s, and it’s a Skyline so the argument is invalid. What an absolute beauty, the car ain’t too bad either!
