Hi fellas, been a looong time since I been here. Been in Antarctica for a while. Back in west coast tasmania now.
Had the os bmx bug, got over it, now I'm getting infected again.
Aug 28 2005, 05:31 AM
What were you doing in Antarctica Andrew?
Tassie not cold enough for you!!
Aug 28 2005, 05:34 AM
Antarctica ? You like the cold then?
Hi Ben too! Show us them 'geese of yours.
Just need a mongoose headset and I'm almost done with the mini. Tyres will be here by the weekend comin. Wheels are mint too. Best $10 I ever spent.
Aug 28 2005, 05:37 AM
Rohan, I remember that plate of Deans well. He liked to fly.....
Aug 28 2005, 05:42 AM
No complete geese left unfortunately, only bits. Pride of place is now the nos gold stem in box, thats the best of bmx products i have left.
Aug 28 2005, 03:02 PM

Is it a vortex? I'll pick up some grips saturday also.
Aug 30 2005, 01:26 AM
This is my sons Vortex. Looks a little different.
Aug 30 2005, 03:10 AM

[ August 30, 2005, 05:12 AM: Message edited by: velocidad ]
Aug 30 2005, 03:14 AM
I'm not sure. It was on there when I bought the bike. It's very narrow at the top. Maybe a mini TRX?? Maybe it's a Vortex fork. The stem is a Vortex mini too.
Aug 30 2005, 05:25 PM
If anyone in aust or NZ has a nos or at least very good Mongoose headset, I really need it asap. I can get them from rinis but I thought I'd try you guys first.
Aug 30 2005, 06:34 PM
Are you after an old one?
Aug 30 2005, 11:56 PM
I have an old one from the minigoose, but it needs a rechrome. I'd get it done if I had other stuff to chrome. I'll leave it 'til next week and get one from rinis if I strike out.
Aug 31 2005, 12:09 AM
Get on form Ginny - it's cheap and it's NOS.
Before the all go.
Don't be picky.
Aug 31 2005, 10:59 PM
Thanks will do.
I got offered a monoshock frame today. The guy said "make an offer". I told him I'll get back to him. I dont want to lowball the guy but I dont want to rip myself off either. It has a crack in the frame too! Thought I'd mention that. So what do you guys think it's worth? I have no idea. They dont come up on ebay that often either.
Aug 31 2005, 11:05 PM
"Why do I need a mono-shock?"
Aug 31 2005, 11:37 PM
I dont know really. lol
I saw reilly's Webco I think it was, and I liked the look of it. Now I want one.
Sep 1 2005, 12:12 AM
if you want one then get it... id say around $50-100
Sep 1 2005, 02:26 AM
Was it a Repco or something better ? I have 2 Repco's here i'll sell ya !
Sep 1 2005, 03:33 AM
I'm not sure. The guy said it was a repco. He was going to put it on ebay.
