2006 GT Compe

2006 GT Compe, I was working in my garage on some other bikes and a guy pulled up in a pickup truck with a load of scrap metal, He saw all the frames and parts and shouted from the cab that he was looking for scrap metal and asked if any thing I had in the garage needed to be hauled off. I told him "no way, everything I have here I'm using" I then remembered that I had an old BBQ grill in the back yard that he could have so I grabbed it while he stared at some of my bikes I had sitting out. He loaded up the grill and said "I have some bikes if your interested I can bring them by later if you could use them" of course I said sure bring them by. later that day he came by with this GT compe and a DiamondBack Viper X and some extra parts. I gave him some cash for stopping back by and he said he would keep an eye out for old BMX Bikes and bring them by whenever he finds some. Score! Its a good day when you have an extra set of eyes out there looking for old survivors...

Re: 2006 GT Compe

I flagged down the scrap guy in my neighborhood,  asked if he can set bikes aside and let me pick thru them.  We're still working out the details, but he's brought me a couple things.  Everytime I see him he has 4-5 bikes on the truck.
