Hey Guys!
Any help on recognizing this Brand ??
I believe it to be a 1980's (?) Rallye Challenger BMX.
It is in Good condition but I can't find anything on it.
My neighbour is selling it and he wants $50.00, do or don't ? I have several other bikes in my collection but this one is original and clean. Also, it is made in Korea.
Thanks everyone and all!
Sorry, didn't post e-mail Please reach me via Jubbley76@yahoo.com

AGE / VALUE:   Whats that frame? posted by: David Webster on 12/3/2003 at 5:04:34 AM
Could somebody help me ID a frame? I bought this from a dump shop (In Australia) complete with 3 piece Takagi tourney 170 cranks, and Tange?? Forks. It has some pretty bad surface rust and from the look of it i would guess that it is late 70's or early 80's. The stickers (mostly illegiable) were, "Ashtabula" and "Supermax" or "Supermaxy"???? (As well as one saying something about being an official supplier to the olympics??) Sorry it's not much to go on - the only other features is a possible serial number printed on the frame (947).
