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

Got your pm... but ive decided to strip it today completely and sell it as a frame which is will get powdercoated. should fetch abit more money then im hoping. and also on the bottom of the frame ive found '118460-F' stamped on it.. i was expecting a date stamped on it??
