Tragic middle aged dad, seeks bmx to embarrass my child at the skatepark. Complete novice to bmx. Looking for something fairly decent but not too fancy.. can spend a couple of hundred quid. Any advice welcome, but not necessarily followed. I’m London based so local pick up or postage required.
I have a Curtis frame if you fancy building one up....😁
i hope you don't mind if i jump on this thread too
also looking for a nice bmx in good condition for my niece and nephew, something decent with 2 brakes, similar price range, maybe 200 - 300 ish,
i'll obviously stand back until you have had your choice wharry and got yourself a bmx but any scraps that fall of the table would you mind if i have a look
the curtis sounds excellent but might be a bit nice for the kids first bmx
@dicki Yep no worries. Someone recommended Facebook market place. Seems to be plenty of decent Bmxs on there.. especially in the south and around Manchester.
@flash thanks for the offer but I don’t think I have the energy to build anything up at the moment or cash to do a Curtis justice.
I’m considering parting with this. Bought for commuting but doing very little of that. The upside of that though is I fitted a front brake so it’s road legal. Rear brake was already fitted. It’s a Blank Sabbath and is a very lovely bit of kit. Can bring to London on the train on a weekday.
Let me know if either of you are interested
(Can take more photos if there’s any interest of course)
Let me know if any interest, can bring to London tomorrow as need to go to the office for a bit
@user90064 thanks for the offer.. very nice! I'm sorted now though. Cheers
if you have some more photos that would be great, and a rough price, i'll let my niece see the photos and get her opinion
and i presume it all works fine and bearings relatively smooth
Hi, here you go. Yes in great condition , very light use. £175 ish would be fair I think given these cost £479 new.
just heard back from my niece
i'll take it if still available, can meet at a london station to collect
let me know when and where
may have to wait till after lock down but still keen
Will prob be selling mine soon, after lockdown likely. It's a United Squad frame, would need a front brake though.
Pic attached - will have different seat and pedals. Would be under £200.
does it all run fine and dandy ? if so i'll take it
Dicki, apologies, didn’t get a notification so missed this. It was bought by someone else in the meantime, sorry.
thanks for getting back, my niece was a bit slow getting back apologies
so on to abr's bike
then lasmo via pm
Yeh works nicely and has decent bits. Want to PM me when you'd be able to pick up after lockdown? Based in Bromley/Beckenham area.
