AGE / VALUE:   What is it? posted by: Sean Kerns on 1/23/2002 at 7:57:25 AM

I found a "mystery" bike in the garbage (?!), and I'd like to find out what it is. It has all kinds of good parts on it, like Tange forks, Araya rims with Sunshine hubs, etc.
It looks kind of "Mongoose-like", but it's not. I've been told it looks like everything from a CW to a Raleigh to a Race, Inc., but I haven't found an exact match.

I put a little page together for it here. If anyone can tell me what it is, I'd sure appreciate it. Seems like a nice cro-mo old school race. Here's the link:

Thanks in advance,

Looks like a Schwinn to me.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   What is it? posted by Brian on 2/19/2002 at 2:21:42 AM
I think it maybe a mongoose. Look for sales on ebay and compare the pictures on there to yours. I should get you in the ball park.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Blue/Black Haro FSX posted by "Elvis" on 2/1/2002 at 7:17:06 AM
Hi. I saw your posting about Haro BMX bikes and I wonder if you could help me.
I found an FSX in the rubbish a few years ago and I just put it together and was wondering if you know how old it might be. Is the FSX like the FST you mention in your posting? The bike is blue and black and has both front and rear brakes. It had no wheels on it when I found it. The top tube of the frame splits into two side-pieces by the seatstay and the chainstays are bent in and out, apparently on purpose. Front fork has a hole on each side for pegs or something... Any idea how old it might be or if it's worth anything? Someone offered to buy it the other day and I'd like to have an idea. Thanks.

   RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   Blue/Black Haro FSX posted by mikkopeters@yahoo.com on 2/1/2002 at 4:28:15 PM
It's probably a 1987. FST/FSX's were entry level, but I rode one for a while when I found one for cheap from a buddy. I really liked it, and rode it from 1988-1993. The forks arent designed to take huge amounts of jumping, but I never had problems. I like them alot, esp. the 1988 model. The FSX shipped with 6 spoke Skyway mags, by the way...

P.S. - I'm gonna have lots more questions. In about half an hour I'm going to pick up a whole garage full of old school BMX bikes some old guy is throwing out. I'm so excited I can barely sit still in front of the computer! I didn't get a good look at the bikes before, but I say a Redline that's got everything except the seat and a boatload of what look like old 78-1980's mongoose frams... [there's also a RollFast cruiser that looks like its from 1940's but that's for another message board....]
Vaya con dios, thanks for the info!
