Christmas took me down the 80's rabbit hole again thanks to my daughter asking for a skate board...
I bought trucks, bearings, wheels, grip tape, and several decks and her and I put together a few. In looking for parts I stumbled upon some Vision decks inspired by some iconic 80's designs. I found the Psycho Stick and the MG on Amazon for 70 each. It took everything I had not to buy them both if for nothing else but to hang on the wall in my office.
This of course reminded me of my old psycho stick as well as the slew of bmx bikes I had, starting with an Invader (I think my iteration was a Murry or Magna made for Western Auto (branded Western Flyer I think) and the pogo bal. I freaking loved the pogo bal. we'd jump off the deck of my tree house with those stupid things.
oh the 80s had some of the best toys
