picked this up in a bundle of bmx bits a couple month ago


not sure on the model or age, but considering it stands me at a fiver not bad.

definately needs a strip and respray, the mags thats on it are redstone but the freewheels completely shot.

i have a set of new alloy wheels i'll bung on it with maxxis tyres.

the cranks gonna be fun to get out as the bolts on both sides are rounded, but the bearings feel fine, no play or grating.

but give it a try and let us know the progress :twisted:
