1987 Saint Tropez Skyliner

Every few years or so i'd google "Skyliner BMX" to try to reconnect with my first "bike shop" bike but i never got any positive results until...

just recently(summer 2022) there was an ebay listing with pics of the exact same bike i had but unassembled and sky blue instead of grey. I messaged the seller to say that i might need that bike and included a pic of single-digit aged me on my St. Tropez Skyliner with an offer. his reply? 'i also have a grey one in an unopened box.'

SOLD! And what a heavy, poorly welded pile of junk! i couldn't be happier! It's exactly as i remembered from the aero discs to ludicris weight to the grooved top tube on the handlebar(as if anyone could actually freestyle on this thing)  the now it's assembled, box stock and unadjusted. I'm not sure what's worse, the welds or the finish! no one will ride this but, as an exact nos copy of my first 'bike shop bike' it will always have place of pride in my collection. I Guestimate that this was probably around $89 in 1987. I'd like to know what, if anything, anyone else remembers about these incredibly entry level bikes.
