I've just got hold of another Curtis bmx, but the downtube has been repaired & not the best welding job I've seen! so do you think Mr Curtis would repair the frame with a new T45 downtube?

Wow I can't believe how much Curtis BMX is talked about. I used to race for the team in the '80's. My dad was the manager. I still have my old race bike. Dad designed and manufactered some of the frames. He still has the original jigs!! and some frames, forks & handlebars.

Cool! tell him to give me a shout if he wants to sell any of it: info@re-buy-cycle.co.uk.
Back in the 90's me and my boy used to watch the Curtis team race at many events, do they still have a race team?

As for value on the Curtis frame of yours? who knows! I thought that one on ebay would be lucky to get £150, I was hoping to get it at £80. but it sold for £210.
So if I thought yours was worth at least £300. then maybe you should add some (say £100), but then again a complete bike, all original is worth more.
As they say 'its worth as much as someones prepared to pay for it!'
What do you think its worth?
