Question on MOSH BMX

Hi,

I have a chance to by a MOSH BMX really cheap, but I cannot find any information or specifications on the bike. Can anyone here help?

The bike is a MOSH SP3, built pre-2000? with full CrMo frame, stock from factory, but that is all I know about the bike. Does anyone have an further information so that I can decide whether the buy it or not?

Thanks in Advance

dont no anything about the mosh sp3
but i can say mosh has a pretty good rep.
a full chromoly frame is good
and it'll probably be heavy
how good is the deal?

expats from austrailia to.

The deal is pretty good, I can get the complete bike for $150 Australian.

I'm not really worried about the frame, as I know that MOSH has a good rep. in that respect. The weight also is not a problem is I'm 31 and have the strength to throw the bike around

I'm more worried about the crank and bearings. If it has a 1-piece crank, that will cause a problem as I snap 1-piece cranks just by looking at them . And I'm looking for a bike that has at least sealing bearings on the rear (both front and rear would better). If this bike does have a 1-piece crank and/or no sealed bearings then the price is not looking too good as it will cost me more to upgrade the bike to the specs I like than the bike will cost me originally.

Good to see a ton load of Aussies still riding.
