6-4-11 swap meet find

There is only 1 bike swap meet that ever goes on in this crap town and it's an annual deal. I always have something going on so this is the first year I've made it. Glad I went this year!

After maneuvering around the hipsters and sorting through the stuff I was NOT into, the last row, second from the end, I saw the only decent BMX in the joint. Of course, I asked the guy a little about it. He said he got it from his neighbor about a year ago. His neighbors grandson rode it but then had enough of it(I found out why when I was loading it into the SUV- see last pic). I didn't have any cash on me, so I asked him to hold it for me and I'd be back ASAP!

I took off for the closest ATM(there wasn't one...) and got back 20 minutes later. Paid the guy and off I went.

Not much for components, except for maybe the seat clamp, but there are some Redline platforms that I have never seen...I don't see how they have any use- I pushed my foot down on one and down it went.

Round top tube '79 PK Ripper, key hole crack and on the bottom of the drive side chain stay the weld snapped off...bummer. The blue under the spray paint is so cool.

I have someone in mind wink He's actually a member here, and welded another one up for me- it turned out awesome! I can't say who, but if he wants to chime in, that's his call smile

I was thinking the same thing...I thought that a lot about my last score- the Patterson Sentry, you may or may not have seen. If only these bikes could talk indeed...

I looked quickly this morning and didn't find them. I never delete everything so if I did this time it's a rarity. I'll text you if I find them.
