:lol: Cheers Kev - i was going the long route over on museum :lol:

it's a freestyle of sorts - in the 90's they rode more ramp and street as opposed to the old 80's freestyle ticks

the bikes were built more solid for bigger and harder tricks + more heavy and solid the better (so they thought)

cleaned up will look sweet :wink: 8)

OK,
but if I put knobby tires on it, my kid will do pretty nice riding some trails together with me (on my mtb)?
Can v-brakes be put on the front fork?

v brakes cant be put on the fork, the brake mounts are mounted too high as they are u brake mounts so you would need another brake the same as the rear one

OK, thanks Kev.
But can I use v-brake levers? Or what levers do I use?
Have no brake experience except v-brakes...

v brake levers should work but they tend to be quite large/long compared to a bmx brake

I think its a KHE Cosmic, midschool, so 98ish which I believe from what Ive read is a copy of a heavy tools.
The Chainring is the right one for the bike if it is a khe cosmic.

regards
Chris.
