So where do i post a pic of a bike to maybe get some help figuring out what it is??

You post it in the "name it" forum section, preferably with pictures.


I'm looking for the following frames, frame & forks or completes by BMX products:
MotoTrac (nickle or chrome), Racer-X or a Super-X (with the double gussets).
Thanks wink

I don't really see the issue people have with the "how much is it worth threads".  I mean, if you dug your old bike out of storage, and wanted to know it's current value...going to a forum full of bmx collectors and asking isn't really the worst place to start.  It's probably the best place to ask actually.

I agree. I don't see the big deal. This site is fortunate enough to have people in the know who could "ball park" something for a guy who dug his old bike out. And all of us others are even more fortunate to have people like you around.

If a guy is being a dic K about it or its obvious he just joined to get his bikes appraised so he can then turn around and try to sell them on here for that amount, sure, no argument there.

But I was in that spot one time. (I don't recall asking what my old 86 Robinson was worth, but only because i wasn't interested in selling it).

Good point! Also, sometimes you just want to know what something is worth before you dump a shit load of money into it.

Re: Bmx Museum<--->Newbie Guide<--->Pro Membership<--->How To's

New to the club, and don't want to faux pas.....Would it be rude to inquire about purchasing a member's bike (privately) that was not listed as for sale?
Also, one mistake I made already that new members may want to learn....I bought an item that was no longer for sale from the old for sale, before noticing the new listing style. May have caused someone some unnecessary aggrivation . oops.. my bad

Re: Bmx Museum<--->Newbie Guide<--->Pro Membership<--->How To's

My 2 cents on the "whats it worth?" (and 2 cents is about what my opinion is worth but....)
I think someone should be able to ask what something is worth, #1 only if they have actually done research trying and had no luck, and #2 only in a section that is for Pro member only. I thing this because how many times do people easily join the site after they found a bike, want a value, with intent to just ebay it and never to be heard of again! hmm
I know I've seen it...and i am pretty sure some of you might have too.

Re: Bmx Museum<--->Newbie Guide<--->Pro Membership<--->How To's

it boils down to if you "genuinley" want to know what something is worth, then you will RESEARCH said item YOURSELF..... Dont join a forum and then ask what its worth on your 1st post. sit on your lazy ass and read like the rest of us have. QUIT EXPECTING PEOPLE TO DO EVERYTHING FOR YOU

and this is just my opinion, but most of the members here are older, and from the the "do it yourself" era .... so quit askin for handouts tongue


The opinions and statements expressed herein are solely my own and not intended to malign any religion, ethnic group, club, organization, company, or individual nor do they represent the opinions of BMX MUSEUM.... i pretty much blame the alcohol , you should too

No offense brother but i think it's pretty funny that u don't want people asking what their bike is worth yet u have a footnote on ur page saying "need quick cash? I buy..." to me that says "I dont want anyone else to tell u what ur bikes worth because i want to try and lowball u for it" That's just my opinion, but what do i know, i'm just a girl...
Oh, and btw funny guys...taking ur crack to a crackhouse is EXACTLY how u could find out how much rock u were holding. U'd b a lame to ask just 1 crackhead; of course he ain't gonna give u the right price. He's gonna tell u "IT'S WORTH EXACTLY THE AMOUNT I JUST SO HAPPEN TO HAVE IN MY POCKET...but can i try it first?" LMFAO
Real talk tho, I think (not that anyone is asking me) that this would b an excellent place to get an appraisal, especially so u DON'T get gypped. The more knowledgeable heads, the less likely u r to trade that crackhead ur older bros vintage SKYWAY for 2 bucks so he can get back to the shelter before there's no bed space available...I'm just sayin'...
