Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

My cousin did on the wildwood boardwalk about 6 years ago on some older Haro I got at a yard sale for $10.  It was like a comp I think, nothing really valuable.  He sold it for $80. He got  back to the house carying a case of corona and handed me $50, then told me what he did.  big_smile

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

I had a gang of Vato's see me on my 71 bmx Klunker 5 spd fastback, my buddie speaks spanish, and they were discussing as to how they were gonna kick our asses and take em, and my buddie,who's thiiick Italian, ran over to em, scattering and scaring the crap out of them, and after he was done, one came over all sheepishly and asked if I'd sell him the bike, and I asked him if he had learned his lesson about being a jerk bike thief, and he looked at me and said "huh, what?" and I looked at him right in the eyes and told him to suck it, and to go get his 4 friends cause me and my buddie wanted to beat all of em.....they never came back. The funniest thing is both my buddie and I are about 160 lbs, and the smallest one of them was easily over 200. ha ha ha. Thank god for speaking a little spanish. I thought they were gonna shank us, lol.


I got lots of stuff, what you need? lol

While riding my bike when I was a kid, some guy offered me some candy to get in his car.    Does that count?lol

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

I was waiting at the . Corner with the kids and some guy started beeping and pointing at me. Drove like a nut to park the car and ran up to me and said he had one like that back in the day. And then asked to buy it , I had to say no since I just finished the build.....that's when the kids saw the value in my bikes ..

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

I had a kid at the local skate park ask me if I wanted to trade my custom built Sunday for his bone stock haro complete.

I asked the kid,if he had my bike and I had his,would he trade me?.....no answer from the kid after that comment.

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

No but I had a chubby chick in high school offer me 500 to bone her.








No I didn't do it...




It would have turned me to the dark side.
Gigolo lifestyle would be hard to quit if you said yes even once I'm sure.


Selling most everything I have.
Help the Hauler(SE) check my trade thread for the hauler build.
I want to build it as close as my high school bike as possible.

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

Last year I got up one morning and rode my GJS freestyler on the boardwalk from Ventnor to Atlantic City. This guy called over to me and said " nice old bike, wanna sell it"? So figuring I'd mess with him for a bit, I said "sure what's your offer"? He than said how about 50 bux? I laughed, and rode away. He called for me to make a counter offer, but I was done with this guy. lol

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

I traded one of my customers a mid 90s Redline PL24 for a complete Bullseye crank setup.... I'm still not sure who came out on top on that one... hmm

Now he expects me to sell him every one of my bikes he sees.. cheap.  Guess he didn't realize the price of Bullseye cranks.

Re: Anyone get offers to sell your bikes while riding

A guy pulled up on the sidewalk downtown and started yelling "HUTCH!!" at me until I rode over to him. He literally begged me to sell.
I saved his # and when I called him a couple years later to see if he still wanted my Trickstar f/f, he left work and was here in 30 minutes. Also got a really cool hook up with a guy who does powder-coating and chrome from him.
