I just picked up a Mongoose Decade freestyle bike. Does anyone know about what year it would be? It has dual position front pegs, a Sakae Spin-Tec stem, and platforms on the rear stays. Thanks.

AGE / VALUE:   Raleigh MX Banana Seat Bike posted by: Sanford on 6/20/2000 at 11:43:27 AM
Hey -

I have an old Raleigh MX bicycle that I bought in the late
70s - and have no idea what its value is or if anyone would
be interested in it. The following is a URL to an image of
the bicycle which has been housed in a garage for it's
entire life. Only problem - I broke the sprocket way back
when.

Can anyone help?

   Sanford, I have some bad news for you posted by Matt on 6/20/2000 at 7:43:10 PM
Sanford-

How about $10 (delivered). In all honesty, Raleighs are junk. Sorry to hear about your bad luck guy. I feel for you ace, and I am truly sorry. Hopefully you didn't pay more than ten dollars for it in the 70s. Again, sorry to hear about your poor luck.

Wow! What an interesting exchange. Sorry Joey, but I like Bill's comments better. Those are some harsh words Bill, and it would be nice for once to talk about old school BMX! Bill, your comments are funny, but you sound sadistic.

I'm a roadie guy, so will someone tell me about a 10-20 year old Schwinn BMX, red/chrome, with what appears to be all Campagnolo components. I've been told that they're original to the bike. Go figure...

IT HAD THOSE WAFFLE LOOKING MAGS THAT WERE REALLY HEAVE
ANY INFO APPREC,


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   OLD SCHOOL BMXschwinn scranbler posted by Jeff on 6/19/2000 at 8:50:41 AM
I think there's a Scrambler in the picture database here.

The waffle wheels were probably alloy Motomags. Very cool and very heavy.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   OLD SCHOOL BMXschwinn scranbler posted by MICHAEL on 6/28/2000 at 10:20:47 AM
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SELL YOUR MOTO MAGS I WILL PAY GOOD MONEY FOR THEM IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SELLING THEM

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   OLD SCHOOL BMXschwinn scranbler posted by George Mcgown on 7/27/2000 at 8:11:59 AM
My mags were heavy also, but were made out of ABS plastic I think. I had a mag scrambler. I want to buy one now. If anyone would like to sell or knows where to get one please e-mail me.

BE CAREFUL GUYS,
THIS SITE IS FOR MORONS AND SCAM ARTISTS. IF YOU WANT TO FIND A "REAL OLD SCHOOL SITE" THAT CATERS TO TRUE OLD SCHOOL FANS, GO TO - oldschoolbmxtalk.com. THERE YOU WILL BE TREATED LIKE A REAL ENTHUSIAST. THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THIS SITE ARE A LITTLE SHAKY AS FAR AS CREDIBILITY. THEY ARE NOT THE FIRST, AND THEIR BMX KNOWLEDGE IS 0.


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   BE CAREFUL, THIS SITE IS FOR MORONS posted by Jeff on 6/19/2000 at 8:54:42 AM
Why don't you just advertise your web site the usual way?

VVVintage has been on the web for 5 years and they are honest dudes. It's true, they don't care much about BMX, but so what?

   This Jeff guy sounds like a real piece of work. posted by Mike on 6/19/2000 at 1:13:24 PM
Hey Jeff -
Just out of curiousity, why can't you leave an e-mail address? I'm sure you are an intelligent guy (kidding), but I could never figure out people like you who hide themselves on a web site. I imagine if idiots like you were to make an old school website, we would all be in trouble. Just an opinion. I can give you advice of what to do with yourself if you e-mail me. It would be a little too un-pleasant for this site.

This frame is posted on ebay under the item #358838518. Please email me with any questions.
