hello all....i bought an old bmx the other day and need to know what it actually is and if its worth anything?? how do you upload photos on here?
* Re. what it is:
They're quite distinctive: Tubing, dropouts etc.
Maybe try browsing Vintage BMX and BMX Museum. They're more specialized forums and more active than the BMX section here on Retrobike. And there are lots of TA owners there.
* Re. What it's worth:
That's highly subjective & depends entirely on condition and originality. And whether it's a frame & fork or a complete bike.
For example, an unused, original frame (NOS or New Old-Stock) would easily be worth WAY more than one that "LOOKS" 100% presentable but has actually been resprayed & has reproduction decals (no matter how good the renovation work). It will almost certainly be worth decent money, unless it needs costly repairs/ tube replacement/ re-chroming; Only the best ones are worth BIG money.
If you're a Brit, the best place to ask what it's worth is:
But, just like other forums, they get a bit annoyed with new members who simply want to make money from a one-off sale rather than stick around and contribute to the community. So be warned.
Uploading pictures is a chore on this forum.
