AGE / VALUE:   ELF Cruiser 24" posted by: Mark on 5/9/2006 at 6:18:30 PM
I'm not 100% sure on the age of this bike but it's got to be late 80's. It's a ELF cruiser with Ukai rims, TNT Revolver hubs, Redline 3 piece crank,Powerlite handle bars. Anyone know what something like this is worth these days?

I am interested in this bike if you are selling it. In its day- the elf was a great cruiser and the powerlite bars have alway been a favorite of mine- the way they bend back to you. Cranks are nice as well..

let me know.

What's up Matt. I'm unsure how to price this bike but I see them going anywhere from $300 to $600 on ebay plus shipping so I think that's where i'm going to sell it.

This bike will be available on ebay next week. I'll post up when it's there. This bike is in amazing shape and race ready. I just took the pics and pieced it out for shipping. Here is a pic... I love this bike and if they hadn't closed off my local track (Indian Ledge, CT) to open use I'd still by out there in my spare time riding it.

could be a late 70's early 80's magna cruiser. the serial # should give you a pretty good idea. are there any cracks or rewelds on the bike? how are the drop outs? I might give you a $100 for it if it's in decent shape and you wanted to sell. peace.

Phase 3 came out with the same style frame. They are a private bike shop and had a few decent riders in the early 80's. Phases's and a littlejohns favor each other except the bow in the top bar is a spitting image of a phase 3. if you have a Phase 3- it is an outstanding frame. A little heavy, but in that era it was acceptable.

WANTED:   Spiral or Amerport BMX posted by: Eric on 4/24/2006 at 7:51:49 PM
Hello. I’m looking for a bike made by either Spiral or Amerport.
The bike was new around 1984. Have you ever heard of these manufacturers?
If so, could you tell me where to look to possible find another? I’ve attached a picture of the bike if that helps. If you don’t know about the bike do you know about the wheels?

Thanks so much, Eric

AGE / VALUE:   Mystery Mongoose M1 posted by: Ian on 4/16/2006 at 4:55:30 PM
I have this Mongoose M1 that I just picked up. It is very strange I haven’t been able to find any information that matches my bike. It has the pro class dropouts with inch increment markings on them; the drop outs have two holes. It is a California made frame because it says so on the frame itself. It has mushroom grips, and Lee Chi mx brakes. Ten wheels and some odd crank, it has black arms and a black circle on the gear itself with a sliver circle around that. The crank has many circular grooves in it, it is like a record.
The frame is perfect; really, it has no scratches, no chips, or dents, at all. The frame has that chrome finish.
I was looking for information on the bike. I know that the M1 was a supposedly cheaper bike, but it weighs nothing and it has those dropouts. The bike shop guys were gawking at the dropouts so I may have something special. I don’t know that for sure.
Maybe someone would like to make me an offer to buy it, I can send you pictures if the link fails.
Thank you,
Ian

When I was younger a friend of mine had a purple 6061 M1 mongoose. It had to be an 85' or 86'. It actually had pinch bolts behind the BB to hold the looptail rear on. It reminded me of an Auburn CR-20 frame.

          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!

FOR SALE:   nice diamondback bmx posted by: JERRY on 3/22/2006 at 11:56:32 PM
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
