Help needed, name of bike, details, etc, much appreciated.thanks

Hi all,

New to the forum so excuse my noob questions. I'm a mongoose girl from way back but recently come across this BMX. Its been de stickered mostly and I'm having trouble working out what it is. The person who sold it to me saya its apparently it could be something as its an imported bike. I doubt it and it doesnt bother me, however I would just like some info on what it is.

The only logo I can make out is a T on the front which I assume stands for Turismo as thats the only sticker left on it.

Probably not everyones cuppa tea hehe but thought I'd post it up and see what you all think.

cheers!

Hi Guys,

I never thought of Royce Union due to the thick lower bar I thought it may be a little to thick as the Royces I've seen are thinner, from looking at the pics in this site, I see that maybe its older ones I have seen. The turismo sticker through me off. I had a look into a "Royce union Turismo" but no luck there either. Just be good to know a make and model. So I'm guessing it has after market brakes, I see someone mentioned lee chi? modified is all a little new to me, as I'm used to old school chrome gooses. Thanks again guys
