Re: REPOP VG?

I'm glad that thread got started.  I do not know enough about VG myself to make the arguement, but I have noticed the inordinate amount of NOS items available recently.  Just didn't seem right to me.


Open to fair offers on anything I have for sale.

Re: REPOP VG?

OK I WILL SAY IT AGAIN THE NEW STUFF IS MADE BY KNIGHT. LOOK AT THE HANGERS SIDE BY SIDE.. also why is the hanger the only one with the BIN option and everything else is on auction they never made a hanger and when did they ever make a non spur tensioner?

sorry was typing on my phone YEs i know they made a hanger look on page one that is the only style hanger they made. they also made a boomerang for pitbulls that looks very similar to the hanger they are saying is NOS , i will pull up the 1/16 page add they had as soon as i have some time it showcased everything they made in black and white and in that photo you will not see any non spured tensioners  or a hanger that looks like that  the original hanger had five bolts on it not one

Re: REPOP VG?

here is a little guide that these people should follow   

NOS = new OLD stock

NS = new stock

REPOP= same design made by a different person


lets be clear as to what it is we are doing

Re: REPOP VG?

I just jumped on E-bay, put in VG  under "Old School BMX Parts" and a whole slew of stuff came up. 3 months ago, when I was looking for framesavers-nothing, zero. Hope they're real for people looking now, otherwise

Re: REPOP VG?

just go on ebay and say these sellers are selling fake items cause to the best of real riders eyes these are not the same vg parts from back in the day

its like they made the three parts that can still be used in the new school setting forgetting why everyone wanted the stuff in the first place to build that old bike they always wanted

now the market is flooded with shite VG parts

Re: REPOP VG?

This thread makes me glad I have sold off most of my VG stuff. The only VG I have left is the stuff on my bikes and a few misc. parts that I know are real.


Gotta love the 80's and 90's, when a simple smile could get you laid. That same smile now gets me pepper sprayed and a karate chop to the throat.

One part two years ago does not equate to a mass amount of stuff that is being offers on the bay

I guess the argument of not making a non spur tensioner is out the door!!!!!

Re: REPOP VG?

Looks like recently made VG items.  Knight used VG among other companies to make parts like stems, spyders and the brake piece in the past.   Looks like VG is branding the brake piece as their own now.
