Many, many years ago i had an old BMX which i decided to upgrade.

It got completely taken apart, resprayed in black and all the bits, bar the handle bars, upgraded.

It's been sat round the back of our containers for around 15 years and after joining the forum, i figured i'd fire up some pics.

Not sure the make and if there's any value in it or the bits, but hey ho.

Also looks like an old JMC frame, but the guy above me is probably right as of thats the wrong head badge for a JMC.

Found a few old pics of Kalkhoff BMX's on Google images and it certainly looks like how I remember it, but no pic available of the front badge.

Seem quite rare!

Just had a shifty on eBay and it certainly looks like they are.

Don't have the time to do the bike up, but it would be a shame to split it.

Well rather than break it, i've listed it complete on Ebay.

I'd liked to have rebuilt it, but i don't have the funds or time to do so.

Good memories with it, but life goes on i suppose. :cry:

Yep, I upgraded the wheels/tyres, brakes and pedals plenty years ago.

Any pictures of your own for us to see?
