It exists only through the help and support of the many generous oldschool BMX fans that have contributed their time, effort and (in some cases) money so that this site can continue to grow.
As you can imagine, it takes a lot of work to convert these magazines and books into a digital format and get them online. So if you have some magazines or any other oldschool documents you would like to share or you think that you can help us in some way then please contact me here: firstname.lastname@example.org.

These magazines and books are made available with the utmost respect to the original writers, producers and plubishers and this site should not be seen as an attemp to take advantage in any way shape or form of the copyright holders of these materials.
The aim of Oldschoolmags.com is simply to preserve one of the most important aspects of oldschool BMX - the magazines, newspapers and books. They are historical records of the people, places and events that have shaped this sport and made it what it is today. Much of the information contained within the pages of these magazines and books exists nowhere else which is why it is so important that they remain easily accessible to all members of the oldschool BMX community.
I trust that you will enjoy your time here and hopefully you'll rediscover many great memories from your youth while browsing through the archives. So, thanks for stopping by and may your wheelies be long, your rockwalks plentiful and your flouro bright.
Have you ever wished that you could go back in time to the late 70's and early 80's when BMX was king and guys like Bobby Encinas, Stompin' Stu Thomsen, Greg Hill, Brian Patterson and Toby Henderson were gods on the track? When the likes of Bob Haro, R.L. Osborn, Eddie Filoa, Mike Buff and Mike Dominguez were redifining the term "radical" almost on a daily basis? When you could walk into a newsagency and see the latest issues of BMX Action, BMX Plus, Super BMX and Freestylin' in the racks as crisp and clean as the day they were printed? Or that you could go into a bike shop and see all the classic frame and fork sets, uniforms and accesories just waiting to be purchased? Yeah, me too.
And have you ever wished that you could purchase all those amazing items, return to the present and keep the things you wanted while selling off the rest and make yourself a small fortune? Yeah, me too.
And have you ever wished that you had a little button on the side of your watch that froze time when you pressed it, so that you could just walk into peoples houses and go through their stuff without being cought? No? Err, yeah, no me either. Because that wouldn't be cool, right?
Aaaanyway, the simple fact is that time travel won't be a safe and viable option for at least another six to eight months, so until then please feel free to download and read the many classic BMX magazines and books from our archives.
