Jumping ramps and having contests on you could brake the longest skid. I went through many rear tires lol. Get off my yard guy getting angry for marking up the sidewalk. Anyways had a lot of fun and good clean mischief that was harmless.
Same here. I had a Sears Free Spirit banana seat bike with flat profile rear tire and my brother had same type of bike from another store. My best friend at the time had a Huffy Cheeter Slick bike of the same build.

Wheelies, jumping junky dangerous ramps, and skid contests were the thing to do. Until BMX style took over, that is.
