A friends son is looking for a BMX to do up, but only has a budget of £50. I know this isn't much to the BMX enthusiasts, but if anybody sees anything going local that might be suitable, please let me know. Tatty is OK, as long as the chassis is solid. I don't know anything about BMX's, but don't want him to buy a munter. :wink:

I did see that actually, but didn't see it before the listing ended. Thanks for looking though.

No I don't think so, just something rideable, that isn't crap and that will be a good bed to build on. He's actually said that he's happy for it to be tatty!
