AGE / VALUE:   Webco Replica Value posted by: Joe on 4/14/2006 at 3:49:58 PM
I own a mid 1970's Webco Replica with the Magnesium Mags. The bike is in EXCELENT condtition with lots of old school accessories like: Haro Number Plate, Galindo handle bars and bear trap pedals. I am aware that this bike is unique. I am trying to decide if I should restore this bike or sell it and buy something modern. Anyone have an idea on what this bike may be worth?

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Webco Replica Value . this is about the wheels posted by jermaine on 7/12/2006 at 12:07:16 AM
One of the ways to replenish our funds at Bikes For Tykes is to sell bike-related items on eBay. This wheel came off an older BMX bike that was donated to us in April 2004; it would have been too costly to repair the bike, and it was decided that we would part it out since it did have some interesting parts installed. I knew the Webco Magnesium rear wheel was unusual, so that was the first part to go up for auction.
The item was listed on eBay April 19th 2004 for a 7-day auction, with a starting bid of $9.99. I figured that an interesting BMX part of this type would net about $60.00 for our organization at auction's end ($60.00 will buy us about 20 new tire tubes). Within minutes of posting it I had an email from someone who wanted me to end the auction early and trade the wheel to him for various BMX bike parts. This set off an alarm in my head, that maybe this auction would do quite well; rarely does a seller get any contact from bidders until there is about 4 days left. I kindly refused, suggesting that he bid his limit instead. By the next day there were 4 bids which brought the price up to $25.00. Bidding stuck around $60.00 for the next 5 days. I was busy on the last day of the auction and didn't keep track of the activity, happy with the $60.00 bid that I had predicted. I went to bed, forgetting to check the listing.

Webco Magnesium 20" BMX Wheel w/Coaster Brake


The next morning before work I sat down to see who the final bidder was so I could send out a winner's notification. What a surprise to discover that the final bid was $215.39! Apparently on the last day of the auction the action turned frenzied, with most of the 19 bids coming in that day.


I was dumbfounded and had trouble settling in my mind that this wheel had just netted Bikes For Tykes over $200.00, which would fund our work for the better part of two months! But it was true; the wheel I thought was only worth $60 had a street value over 3 times that amount. It just goes to show that some things in this world are worth a lot more than you think they are.
Incidentally, the rest of the bike we parted out has also done quite well. The frame and fork sold for $70.00, and the cranks sold for $26.00, bringing our total funding to $311.00! Not bad for a donation that was sitting under a tree in a rural part of the county!

Thanks for all the information. I have decided to restore my bike. I received an offer for $2000 for the bike from a collector as is and I just could bare the thought of letting it go. Now I need to find a decal set. Any ideas?

hey all. I have a very nice diamondback bmx bike. I'm unsure of the year of it's make, but it seems to be a bit newer. I got this bike from a friend of mine, and since then, I have changed nearly every part on this thing. Including a haro rear rim, primo hemeroid seat, snafu pedals, and older freeagent handle bars. This bike is black with a black front rim, handle bars, stem. So basicly the whole bike is black, but the rear rim is gray. This bike has a one piece rhino crank and sproket. It also has BRAND NEW redline monster forks. {$60 retail price}. Oh yeah, this is a viper X. It has an origanal Diamondback stem, front rim, grips, and seat post. If you would like to know more, or like to buy this bike please email me at da man69@sbcglobal.com

MISC:   Graco BMX Bike(s) posted by: Royce on 3/19/2006 at 3:49:02 PM
Hello everybody!..Can anybody out there give me ANY information on this company at all such as where they were based, did they make more than one model bike, what were the model numbers of their bikes, etc. I got one for christmas in 1975 when i was 12 years old and it was stolen a year and a half later. I have wanted (and still want) to replace that bike ever since. It didn't have a model number on it that i can remember, but it had front and back shocks, a fake gas tank, motorcycle styled handlebars, and a motorcycle styled seat. Can they still be found? How much do they roughly go for? Do parts for them ever pop up? Where should I be looking? Sorry for all the questions, but I have been looking all over the internet for months, and I still can't find anything out about them. A most sincere thank you to anyone who can help.

Graco is the same company that still makes baby strollers. They made that bike along with a rigid model. That bike has a 22" front wheel which is nearly impossible to find a tire for, however 22" is a standard size in China. There are a few around most of them are missing the plastic. Watch Ebay.

That Rampar is similar but not the same, Graco had a 22" front wheel. Those Rampars are a dime a dozen, Gracos in good shape aren't.

AGE / VALUE:   JAD bikes? posted by: Joe on 3/19/2006 at 6:56:44 AM
I came across an odd frame today, I was told it was made by JAD. The frame is a monotube design and uses a mid style bottom bracket, but is at least 10 years old according to the owner.
Does anyone know anything about these frames or bikes?
The frame I looked at is very close to the one posted here:

I was co sponsored by JAD in the mid 90's. I still have the frame and a set of bars made by them. They also made aluminum and magnesium cranks. I don't know what they are worth but I am curious. Mine is nickel plated but they also had chrome and powder coated versions. If you find one look on the under side of the bottom bracket. Mine has my name and the number 41 on it sonce it was custom ordered. They were made in California, I believe in the San Diego area.
