Must have been an ugly divorce. Such a waste, such quality destroyed forever.

Anyone who can use a mig welder and hand tools should be able to have it looking good in no time.

next time you scoff at silly prices for retro bikes, have a look at this:

$4000 bmx.
i had one of these in high school, which cost my dad $100 second-hand.

Getting close to s-1 so I thought better of putting in minimum bid as it would have been something to tune up and on sell, unless better than my current stable. I missed one recently that didn't sell first time round for $50, then second time it went for over $100.

A few days late, but current stats: 4771 posts and 153093 views (We sure got a lot of time on our hands). Easily the most active topic in the Retro section eclipsing my other favorite, the Repco Appreciation Society at 2219 posts but almost as many views at 151673 (obviously a great resource for those researching their "vintage retro oldschool Repco Traveller/Superlite/Bunky" before listing at stupid high prices and ending up in this thread).

From my own stats: Most active topic: eBay prices on the rise, good time to sell old junk? (90 Posts / 13.25% of your posts)
Would've thought it'd be higher considering the amount of times I check it each day when I'm at work.

So proud to be this thread's Daddy. :D
