ABOUT OLDSCHOOLMAGS
Oldschoolmags is a true labour of  love and was built on the idea that "when everyone conributes then everyone benefits".  It exists only through the help and support of the many generous oldschool BMX fans that have contributed their time, effort and money so that this site can continue to grow. 
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.
Love and peace,
(Site custodian & Sleestack hunter)
WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
Here you will find many of the great BMX publications and books from the past.
Bob Osborn and the gang at Wizard Publications released the first edition of BMX Action way back in December 1976 and a legend was born.
While not the first BMX magazine, it was certainly one of (if not) the best. The worlds’ longest running BMX publication and home of Radical Rick.
The gang at Wizard were first again with a magazine solely dedicated to freestyle BMX. Thus, another legend was born.
In 1989, with BMX on the ropes, Wizard decided to merge their two magazines into one powerhouse publication. The result was GO.
There were so many other great magazines from this period. They can be found here.
OS magazines from Australia. As this is the home of oldschoolmags.com, how could we not include some mags from the great southern land?
