I've come to the sad realisation that I don't think I will ever use my beloved S&M Dirtbike again.
I had grand designs recently of buying era correct parts and restoring it into the Dirtbike I always wanted it to be, but I can't justify the cash if i'm never gonna use it when re-built.
I would prefer to sell it to someone who still rides BMX and appreciates a classic bike. Someone who would look after it as opposed to someone else who'll let it rust beyond repair.
One Inch Headtube, Yellow Frame - all original Thrasher decals.
Chrome 1 Inch Threaded Pitch Forks with decals.
I think they stopped making them in 94/95 (before they went 1/18th), but I'm sure I bought mine in 1996 so it must be one of the last 1 inch frames they made.
It has some nice era correct parts on it too:
A one inch chrome Static Stem. These were made by Custom Riders in the UK - one of the beefiest shafted stems ever made - I always wanted a redneck with wedgie jackson in black or red for it though.
A Silver Haro/Fusion Nuke 44T Sprocket - Very Cool.
Araya Super 7X 48 spoke wheels on Sovos Unsealed hubs
(Unfortunately the rims are a bit flaky)
(I've a spare Super 7X rim with a ding in it too - NOT Rusted - ding would probably be fixed easy enough).
The piece de resistence though has to be the Silver Shimano DX pedals on it!
I know they were rare and expensive to get back when I was riding.
Also - GT FS 2.1inch Tyres, all black, lots of tread - in great nick.
Chrome GT Double bolt Seatclamp.
Odyssey Gedda Grips.
Schwinn Dirt Bars - A bit Rusted (I had them taped with black electrical tape as well as the forks. When I took the tape off recently it took some paint off the bars but the forks are spot on.
Dia-Compe MX-99 lever - AD994 U-Brake.
Also, I have 2 genuine white skyway mag wheels from the eighties - a bit discoloured though - they'd sell with it.
It definitely needs a new chain.
I want to sell the lot for £350 sterling which includes the cost of shipping to the UK.
