depending on condition,the bullseye hubs are worth up to 150 a pair.ive seen them go for that on ebay.the old mongoose stuff really isnt in high call.but a frame and fork in really nice shape could get you about the same as the hubs.robinson stuff goes for cheap.no matter what the condition.same with the bars and stem.dont know about the suzuki stuff.could you tell me the size of the bars though?i am going to build an old bike of mine and i may be interested in the bars and stem.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Need help / could be for sale posted by Jim on 1/4/2003 at 9:50:04 AM
That Robinson would be worth at least $100-150 if it is the older style with the R or the holes in the front gussetts.Newer GT made worth less.IMO.

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Need help / could be for sale posted by ED on 1/5/2003 at 9:02:06 PM
Thanks for the info. Wayne & Jim. At this time I am not ready to split up the mongoose for parts but thanks for the offer Wayne.

Say Ed, the rupe mongoose was a cool bike, and the way you have it set up is rad!! They didn't make them for very long' I thought it was 1 of the better thought out frames- hey rupe designed it. the robbys--- man these things should go for more than thay do, Chuck started at the begining and knew BMX a small co. that made high qual stuff. the suzukis -- it was the best bmxer out of the big 3 (yam, kaw}
but man it was made by machines look at those welds. suzuki made a push for a few years, and got out of bmx, the bike gallery in portland OG. bought them out and bilt them up and sold them till gone. this things bring long $$$. I'm building one up and could sure use a chain ring. I have more info on the suzuki if you would like!!

i have 1 white 36h acs z-rim hand-laced to a matching unsealed z-hub, in excellent condition, $35. i can also get an NOS black 36h z-rim only for $25 if you want. but, alas, no sets of either. email me if your interested.


   RE:RE:WANTED:   ACS Z-WHEELS posted by wayne on 1/3/2003 at 3:53:26 PM
hi mike,what hub is the white one laced to?front or rear?thanx i may be interested.

   RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   ACS Z-WHEELS posted by mike. on 1/4/2003 at 9:05:34 AM
the white one is laced with ss spokes and chrome nipples to a front 36h white unsealed acs z-hub. both are in excellent condition, but needs to be completely tightened and trued. i never finished this one. i can do this for you for a very small fee, or you can do it yourself inside and hour, if you can do wheels. it has NOT been on a bike since i laced it, so there are no worries there. anyways, lmk. email me at kilostoys1@juno.com

wasn't that Haro's bottom of the barrel cheapo freestyle bike? how about $40 delivered?

   RE:RE:FOR SALE:   Haro FST posted by Eddie on 1/1/2003 at 6:59:26 PM
If it is such junk why would you even want it?

   RE:FOR SALE:   Haro FST posted by Brian on 1/3/2003 at 12:24:20 AM
This message is for Mike, Im not sure if it was the bottom of the barrel, my friend left it at my house years ago, i thought it was nice back then, i was sporting a huffy. How about you send me the $40 and ill send you the pictures of me riding your girlfriend home late one night on the handlebars.

   RE:RE:FOR SALE:   Haro FST posted by t. maples on 1/3/2003 at 2:12:53 AM
Now thats funny :-) I believe Mike is correct though. That was Haro's cheapest bike and I believe it had a steel (rather than chromoly) rear end. Someone would be interested. Ask Jim what its worth. Bender told me that Jim only buys overseas made Hutch bikes. - Tom
