Post subject:  Curtis freestyler sidehack

Hello all, just joined here as im looking to see what my curtis freestyler sidehack is worth as it stands or would it be worth more if i stripped it down and got it resprayed and sold it as a frame as sadly the handlebars and wheels arent original... Its not been looked after very well as if im honest i had no idea that it was a curtis and pretty rare from what ive read on here.. i just bought it when i was about 10 *9years ago* off my brothers friend who used to race them for abit of fun..

I'll put some pictures up now many thanks

Ive cleaned it up a lil, as in got rid of the moss haha, but ive lost interest in it now and would prefer it to go to someone who will restore it now. Ive had a very good 9years of fun on it now and its now showing the price of it i guess..

Ive been offered 20pound for it but come on....... its not that bad surely!! haha

Si This was the guy that was going to sell me the cw side hack quiet a while back - sorted out a deal with 99% done and then he stopped pm'ing me and and never answered a single pm after that :roll:

shame you scraped the side hack as you fooked up a good bmx that was unique :roll:

shame you couldn't pm me back :roll:

A lot of people wondered what happened to that ride - shame :roll:

Quite a transformation eh? Having 'ridden' the side hack I can assure you that it was far from 'a good bmx', it was in fact a shame to leave in its bastardised condition. Ditching the ropey add-on was the best thing to do. 'Freestyler' has spent hours cutting, filing, sanding and preparing the frame before having it powdercoated, even being careful to choose the correct shade of yellow. Although he doesn't have all of the 'correct' parts it is a truly stunning bike that will be upgraded in time. It has been an honour to watch home bring the thing together and to help him do so.

In reply to your comments about you aquiring the bike some years ago I remember your measly offers. I advised him not to sell for so little, so it is little wonder that the pm's stopped. I also notice you have removed your post from the 'what's it worth' thread without trace, surely this is at least a breach of your moderator status let alone a little rude. Perhaps it is because your private offers before we're so different from your estimated value this week?

As far as I can tell the bike is not for sale, the owner is really pleased with the outcome, but I can tell you it is worth more than '£20'. Or '£40'. Even '£60'. It is priceless atm.

First off I remember two offers - one was at £40 and so i offered to double it at £80 and that i would sort out how to get it.
I found it rude that the pm's stopped (but i guess that is thanks to you :wink: ) and that he couldn't even pm me saying any thing :roll:
As for removing my post in the "what's my bike worth" that was up to me as a member - this is not a breach of being a moderator as any one can delete a thread they have posted in any thread.
My knowledge of bmx has increased over the two years here - my prices are only what the latest prices of bikes selling and not two years ago - i wanted the bike because it was different - it need work - it was not as it is now - as for the offered price, it was up to freestyler what he wanted to accept and he did at the time only to pull the deal and never talk to me again till now.

so yes i have the right to delete any thing that i post - this has nothing to do with being the BMX moderator here !

yes i found it rude when freestyler just suddenly stopped dealing with me and never answered why !

I have no problem with what has been done to the CW or how much hard work you say has gone into it - i said it was a shame that is was taken apart as it was a unique bmx.

and did i ever say that right now i wanted to buy the bike, even if it is worth more than £20 £40 or even £60

so do you have any thing else you want to say to me ? please make sure you get all the facts right before you jump in again :wink:

cheers B - a member on here and a bmx moderator on here - see i am allowed to be both :wink:

Just to clear up why i stopped the pm's was that i realised what it was.. lost interest and now got the motivation to get and do something about it thanks to the position im in now aswell as kanderdogs skills and advice as made this build possible.. and now currently enjoying looking at the bike in the living room.. haha

Post subject: 

well it would of been nice for you to pm me and tell me that at the time don't you think :wink:

you enjoy the bmx :wink: it's nice what you have done to it :P

but i won't be made to look as if i was in the wrong by your buddy Kanerdog1-1 :wink:

I couldnt remember how much your offers were, your memory is far better than mine. But i do remember how much it was roughly worth back then and now. Back then i had five curtis frames, though now i only have two.

Completely removing a post is a power that only moderators and administrators have. Us mere mortals have only the ability to edit a post, sure we can delete everything and put in the minimum characters. But to completely remove all trace of a post is not possible.

Well, he was only a teenager, and i can only imagine the vajayjay he was being tempted with at the time. It doesn't surprise me he was distracted away. Oh, and i corrected you grammar, no charge.

I still think it was a bit rude to cover your tracks with your newfound mod powers...

Teenagers eh?

Seriously, had you seen the abomination you would have put the thing to sleep too. What has risen from the ashes is truly amazing, and needs to be admired.

Anything to say? Please lollipop, don't ban me. I quite like it here usually.

P.S. Its a CURTIS frame, not a CW. Two very different companies with over five thousand miles between them.....

my mistake on the cw and cutis :wink:

why would i ban you ?

you can do what you like to your own post - it just so happens that i choose not to play around and put some thing like a smiley face or so, but instead my choice was to delete what i had put up :wink:

he never said his age when dealing with me ? i think he can think for himself if he can push a button and type

thanks for the grammar check - me, well i don't really care how it's put, as long as the point comes across :wink: i'm sure most folk on here can read and make sense of most of it :wink: :wink:

any way i'm sure you are as bored as i am with this back and forth of " i'm right and your wrong posting"

so i will let you go get stuck into some thing else, that you might enjoy :wink:

oh and you spelt BENDYCAT wrong :wink: :roll: :facepalm:

cheers B :wink:
