Another splurge Matt!

What GT did you pick up?



B






ACGTO
Hey Matt I'll bring them to Roberto's.

What CW did you buy?
Volcano
Hahaha....Adam & the Mancans!.....I'm down to a B-cup now...LOL sarcastic.gif
JMCGT
85 Pro series GT and a Mini Crusier CW...with terry cranks
mcam
Adam, deal is on for the bars smile.gif
JMCGT
Need to buy an 85 GT as i have a few sets of OG stickers...and always wanted the cut out GT forks..
Building it for my new race series bike...
JMCGT
just sold one of those headsets Stu
QuicksilverBMX
wow hive of activity today!

Well I just spoke to the organiser of the Aussie titles here in Perth and we have been allocated space for about 20 bikes, so not a bad result considering its an indoor venue!

Brad, any chance you could bring a hutch up for display? ITs the weekend of the 2/3 May. I'll get some better details soon

Cheers

Nice pics everyone. I have boundaries too. The fear factor is alive and kickin. The only thing that stoipped me at Maryborough was my pedal expolding! I was just getting warmed up. I hope to make it out there again this weekend weather permitting.
Mick those DX's look amazing! Nice pickup.
Stu, that jump shot of yours is a magazine style shot for sure. Very cool!


Hey Glen, it would be a reasonable shot if it was 10 feet higher...it might feature in BMXO .. (BMXOldtimers)


Adam, you Martin and Matt, just about have the equvilent of a well stocked 80's bike shop...actually a lot better stocked than a lot of shops around my area BITD....I thought I had my finger on a blue Elina, it appears to have slipped away...but in the words of Wayne Campbell out of Wayne's world... "It will be mine. Oh yes. It will be mine"!!

oh yeah Brad, I don't understand why anyone would pay that sort of bucks for 901's, they are pretty easy to locate for half that!!
ACGTO
Everything Haney is selling goes so much higher. It's unreal at the moment.
Jarvi
How do those head locks work? I only ever had the Suntour ones where the screws pressed the plastic bit against the fork thread but I see the bolts go vertically rather than horizontal. Do they have more of a wedge type thingy in there?

He is a super nice guy, it seems like people pay extra, cause he is a bit of legend of the hobby...in saying that you know you will always score quality parts from him....I've had many interesting emails go back and forth...his collection is truely outstanding....

James, they screw down against that chrome ring which inturn slots into the fork thread slot....much better idea as it doesn't push against the threads like the suntour version...(well in theory as I always turf them and use a stem lock aka 2 n 1)
Jarvi
Thanks Stu. Guess each was just trying to be different.
JMCGT
I thought alot of haneys gear was cheap...considering the high prices being paid lately...
And that is the reason why he has been filling my garage up...
ACGTO
Don't get me wrong guys I don't reckon he's expensive. He's been getting bloody good prices for his stuff which is understandable considering his reputation. I'd rather buy from him as you know it's going to be good.

Did I mention I like Boobs!

Did you buy some boobs from him? biggrin.gif

I've got my own set - had em for a couple of years, could always do with another pair though

I think though his stuff is getting more popular, hence the price going up - but I'm gradually getting a little stash of bits


QuicksilverBMX
ok just for you Adam

Volcano
Ahhhh....thanks Reece wub.gif
ACGTO
Nice work Reece. I'll swap my entire collection for that.
COASTY
Noice Reece..
JMCGT
Must be booby month
Sumo178
I just fell in love!
QuicksilverBMX
its my sister Adam, all yours

Will you be sending your collection over by post or courier?
Volcano
Will u be sending your sister to Jake by courier or post Reece? sarcastic.gif
QuicksilverBMX
oh right, well i was going to say shes my wife but then you probably wouldnt have bought it!

Sorry dear tongue.gif
JMCGT

Nice!

hey sorry to bring the party down but my Hutch bikes got ripped off last night!

Just a heads up incase you guys see 'em for sale.

Full info here:
m%th$%fu*%$@s
JMCGT
what a c#@T..good luck Andy...my eyes are peeled...

After the early ones Mick...I will get a pic

84profile
Truely gutted for you Andy...I hope some way, some how, they are recovered....how many Pro Racers would there be in NZ?? Let alone XL-24's? They will show up eventually.
Kurt.
That's bloody terrible news Andy.
AndyDiamond
thanks guys.

Stu is right - not many of these around - if them come up to the surface they will stick out like sore thumbs.

Just working out the insurance now.

ACGTO
That really sucks Andy. I hope you get both bikes back and they also get caught and dealt with too.

Some people just have no respect for others property.
AndyDiamond
I was wondering if any of you guys might be able to help out for my insurance purpose?
I need some collectors to price out what my bikes would be worth to replace so I can submit to the insurance company.
A bike shop can't do it because they'd have no idea.
Ebay is one way but we need averages, not extremes!

I might factor in shipping to NZ too.

If any of you guys a keen it would be rad!

I can supply a list of teh parts and condition.


JMCGT
I would be more than happy Andy...
should have a fair idea as i have just sold a couple of hundred parts Locally..
email is mroldskool@bigpond.com
Matt
AndyDiamond
Hey thanks Matt - very nice of you.

diavolo
heartbreaking that you just finished one of them too, not enough time to play with it. seriously hope you can get these back!!
Jarvi
Andy, maybe have a look at Martin's database of ebay sales too. Are you able to print out PayPal records if you bought and paid for parts using it? Can't remember how far back the history goes with that though.
Volcano
Andy..my heart sank when I read that...so sorry to hear that. sad.gif
Will keep an eye out for you...I hope you get them back.
I'll help you out anyway I can mate.


Matt - email some pics of the stickers you are chasing.
JMCGT
Trouble is James, you want replacement Value...
I use to buy kashi seats for $50.. wink.gif
whats you email Mick..
COASTY
Thats really crappy Andy. I read the post on OS and I hope you see them again. man thats just Fu@#ed
Jarvi
Yes you are correct Matt although I thought it might be worth it if the insurance company comes back with, "you really think 25 year old bikes parts cost that much".

Glenn, DVDs posted out today so enjoy them. Not Matt they aren't some of your home movies that I found online recently. Just BMX porn instead.
QuicksilverBMX
Can someone help me out? I am building a bmx (old school) for by daughters 8th birthday which is next tuesday and I thought I had some nice yellow grips for the build but I dont!

Sumo178
Quicksilver I just read "Can someone help me out? I am building a bmx (old school)" and started laughing. I was thinking hey so am I...lol
Kurt.
Hey Reece - i have some new yellow grips you are welcome to.

Hell, i owe you one wink.gif

I'll take a pic - just let me know if you want them.
