BMX - need some opinions

i looked on ebay for a temporary race bike that i can use. my bike is totally unfit to even roll onto a track, and it isnt in very good shape. so opinions good or bad on this bike. thanks
what is this bike that bad that no one even replies?
Sorry, but that would be a waste of $160. The seller should be beaten for even suggesting that it's anything more than a pile of crap. It's gotten some good reviews, but mostly by kids that probably don't know better. The spec on is is nothing special, it's just a fairly light bike. You can certainly do better. What do you have now that's so bad? Would spending the $160 improve it enough to make it race-worthy? Are there used bikes available from anyone at your local track?
see i would slowly accuire racing parts for my current bike, but then i wouldnt really be able to use it for dj. or at least the guy at my lbs says racing parts are made to be light and fast, not to take a beating after a beating.
i dont want a really good bike or a good bike at all, just something i can race on untill i get some money togather to make a race bike. i also need a fricken helmet!

Yeah, I'd say that that bike was worth around $200 when it was in the shop, five or six years ago.
$60 ought to get you a full face helmet either on ebay or Jensons or Pricepoint. If your current bike has 2 wheels and rolls, just race that and upgrade when you can. Even though I'm a Haro fan, I think you'd just be throwing money away on that bike. It sounds like you're just a kid, in which case you ought to be able to build a bike that would hold up to some DJ action as well as be raceable. If you weigh 200 pounds, all bets are off.
yea i am going to race my bike. i think i am getting a helmet from my freind for not much cash. i am a kid, but if you think i am like 10 im not. and i got a bit of money but i just bought a mtb and i need a new snowboard for this winter, AND i play paintball in the spring(which isnt the cheapest sport out there)
*and i am not over weight*
