What's it worth? from what i've researched its a 98 GT performer, if anyone knows different please let me know, this was a bootfair find and pretty rusty, but cleaned up well, I've added 80's acorn mags and removed the giro for a linear cable.

I also have the origanal GT wheels and GT boots with the nooblies on the side still intact. Also have all 4 original stunt pegs, I just prefer the look without.


It's a 2000 not a 98

Do you know this for sure? over on the BMX museum i have looked through all the GTs and it looks to be as the 98 models. I can't work out the serial numbers, seems to have 2 sets. Any help apprieciated. :D

I see now the difference in the decals, so would agree this looks to be a 2000 :wink: Any help on working out the serial numbers would be cool :D

Positive, forks and decals are from the 2000 model.

That's all the info on GT serials on BMXMuseum, can't help you anymore than that. But if you post the serials up on the Museum, someone will be able to tell you more.

My brother has this Raleigh Styler:

He wants to sell it and is after a valuation. I'm not a BMX person so I have no idea.

Thanks,

Carl.

It's always hard to say from just one pic

it look good condition from what i can see - closer might show more marks

the syler was at the end of the line (bar the run out models ) of Raleigh's bmx's after the burner range

this would have been around '87 ish

looks to have all the fleccys on it and the pad set - Raleigh branded mags with cheng shin tires

better pic's might give a better idea

you can sell as is or give a wash and show it off better (but on a light wash - don't try to clean it up too much )

i have seen them go from £60 - £120 for a good clean chrome styler

but ebay can be a funny place - it might go higher :D or go lower ? :(

is he going to sell it on here or ebay ?

hope this helps

cheers B :wink:

best bet is Ebay unless some one wants to make you a offer ?

now to get the best out of a sale

1. wash it well - a clean looking bike will sell better than a dirty can't see what yer buying bike

2. use a good camera or phone - picturing it with a bad camera, you might as well get a five year old to draw it with crayons

3. where to picture it - it can be some where clean looking as the back of the bins might suggest rubbish - skate park is good as it's where it might be riding by new buyer - near a cool car, that might suggest a cool car

4. describe it well - good points ~ has these parts, and rides well - bad points can be pointed out in a different way ~ some rust but can be removed with a little work or repaint for your own style and to stand out in the summer sun

this can increase sales - now add in when to sell it on ebay - put it on so it goes over the weekend and they watch it till wednesday and they want it buy then - end of the month peeps don't have spare money ~ a week after payday all the bills have been paid and a little cash going free


when all these bits are looked into then you might get a bit more money :wink:

hope this helps a bit - cheers B :wink:
