Shame, that would have been a good bike to keep hold of.

Stretched the headtube on my old Dirtbike when I had to get off mid section on some trails....bike took a bit of a nose dive into the next set. Managed to cold shrink the headtube fo fit a new headset but didn't last long :(

Moved onto the Trailboss which was IMO a better bike...bit longer in the TT so better for trails


If you still have it an option is boring the headtube out a tad and pressing a steelset in. BTW, if you ever do have a nice frame you like like that, and don't have a cup insertion limit (or are willing to do some machining), you can always run a steelset headset. I can guarantee you will never ovalize a headtube while running one.

Hi! New here! Loved my BMX's for years! Having a bit of an issue though. I have a bike from the 80's I could not bear to part with. Thing is I am not sure how much it is worth if anything. I can't find out much info about it. It is a Reactor red and yellow. I am in the process of giving it a face lift! Any info would be much appreciated!
