Picked this up earlier, i'm going to stick it on ebay, but i'm interested in knowing it's value (want to put it up with a 'buy it now').

So, here it is. It's not in great nick, but the chrome is not bad, the wheels are straight, and from what i can tell from http://www.bmxmuseum.com it's pretty period, if not original.

Going by what's fitted it's very original and of it's time (my BMX heyday too!) - Grafight X, Takagi one piece, Uni-seat etc. May be worth sticking a post on the RadBMX forum to see what the guys there say.

Measure the TT to see if its a Pro or expert, it looks like a pro, as it is you may get a couple of hundred, White Tuff wth alloy hubs go from anything from £80- £250 but clean them & bleach them, if it a pro F&F depending on how good the chrome is £120 - £220, GT Pro Bars £30- £50. Most of the rest of the parts are nothing special in used condition but still worth something to someone.

It may be original from the 80s & it looks like an 82 or 83, but its not a factory build, can I see a better pic of it from the side, the forks may be bent :(

You always get more for these in parts but it is a shame to split :)

Thanks man, I'll post up a side on pic as soon as possible. I intially thought that they might be bent, but i have nothing to compare them to. Should the forks be perfectly inline with the head tube?
