Re: THE MOST VALUABLE BMX IN THE WORLD

I think the gold Redline from Redline headquarters is the most valuable for sure, first of it is factory gold plated, whereas Marcus had his done aftermarket, second it's never been sold or ridden, another words never titled per se, yep what makes the gold redline so much more important than even the RAD one is that it is  permanently on display and even if you wanted to buy it, it's the only one ever "factory" made, which makes it one of a kind .  Anyone can gold plate a hutch and obviously has been done, so another one could be done thus forcing the value down.  More than one bike was in the movie RAD.

^^^^WRONG^^^^^

The former owner of the bike built it in Titusville Florida and then contacted Redline and made a trade for the RAD bike...My son actually, personally and probably deliberately knocked it over when it was in frame and fork at the owners house! True story!!!!!


Just want to let everyone know, when I list something for sale PLEASE ready the description completely and follow the directions so there isn’t any issues! When members call dibs and then disappear it holds the item up for someone who is ready to purchase said item.

Of course. You had a choice of cranks. Just look through the ads of any magazine from back then. They would list the Pro Star with a couple crank options. No matter which cranks you picked, it was always around 630$ for the Pro Star.

Re: THE MOST VALUABLE BMX IN THE WORLD

Some interesting non info here.

I would have thought from a BMX history value then the Redline looptail or the STR1 are going to fetch some big $$$$$

Dont even rate bikes that were on a movie but would pay heaps for Dave Clintons Kawasaki

Depends on the buyer

Maybe some , like myself didn't even know Profile offered a complete high end bike for sale on par with a Pro Star for compenents. I think guys immediately say Pro Star because it was an off the shelf, loaded race bike right out of the box, not built up.

Re: THE MOST VALUABLE BMX IN THE WORLD

I find it interesting that the E.T. bike that sold for 10,000 was for the bike that they used for the flying scene.  I wonder how many "Elliott" bikes they actually used in the film?  I've wanted that bike since the movie came out.  The massed produced E.T . bikes were noticeably different to me even as an 8 year old kid when those bikes were sold.

the redline from the movie rad is the one i was talking about in the first post.....i remember him asking for 25k but the bidding went to 10k

is a first edition skyway 24inch really worth 15k..???....i suppose the cruisers are rarer than a bmx

ide still love to see what the et kuwi from the film would fetch.....does it still exist in a dusty film store room..????

et was a mutch bigger film than RAD so surely the bike from it would be far more valuable, definatly well into 5 figures

There were something like 10 -12 E.T. Kuwas built for the movie. They were all given to poor children in the area after filming.smile

Does it bug anyone else when someone calls a "BMX bike" a "BMX"? It's like calling a Bike a Cycle. tongue

Re: THE MOST VALUABLE BMX IN THE WORLD

I'm sorry, but anyone that pays $40,000 for a bicycle is a dipsh*t. The perceived value is almost irrelevant at that point, as is your bank account. When the bottom falls out, just remember that steel pays $150 a ton. It is a f*cking bike, for goodness sake. go cure cancer or something. Your ego is going to get stuck in the sprocket...oh wait, that's right...you don't even ride that thing.

I do think the market is hot right now because most of us that rode bmx bikes in the 70s and 80s are now older and perhaps trying to relive childhood. So, these bikes have very strong sentimental value and most of us can afford to pay the higher prices.  But, realistically in 50 years will people care as much about bmx bikes from the 1970s/80s?  Maybe some people will,  but there will probably not be so much demand for these things.

Not really-just a vast amount of discretionary income.  40k the that person is couch change and if the bottom fell out he/she wouldn't care a bit.  If you wanna really get upset check out vintage hot-wheels-makes vintage bmx look like child's play considering the relative size of the collectible.  A single car can fetch over 50k.

Re: THE MOST VALUABLE BMX IN THE WORLD

well comics became collectable to 40 somethings in the 1960s that were reminising about their youth...and now they have a momentum of their own with 1st edition of action comics being worth $7,000,000 dollars for a mint copy............if one existed in mint condition

but even so who knows where the prices could go if they turn into an investment item

Agreed now is the hot-spot for marketing to Generation-X....look at TV shows and advertising so much is catered directly to us.
