In the 70s and the 80s, a lot of kids around the globe had BMXs as their best friends. If you were one, here's a chance to take a trip down memory lane.

The 10th OS BMX Thailand and the 2nd Lan Din Klin Old School events are taking place simultaneously this Saturday at the Thung Si Kan airfield of the Royal Thai Air Force's Radio Control Flying Club in northern Bangkok.

The first event is a get-together for riders, collectors and lovers of old-school BMXs from different parts of the country to show off their cherished vintage rigs and share their experiences with one another. The second is a fun-oriented, old-style BMX race on a dirt track.

During the event, which will take place 8am-8pm, there will also be a vintage BMX contest and sale of bike parts, accessories and memorabilia.
