Little help, please.
Hey guys, I've been lurking around these forums for a while, but mostly in the road bike and fixed gear forums.
Anyway, I'm a racer from about 1994-2001 and I recently stopped by my dads place and found all my old BMX stuff. For some reason that I can't remember, I disasembled my old frame, and in the last 5 years or so, little parts have gone missing here and there. What I came back with though I thought was pretty good.
Anyway, I'm not putting this stuff up for sale on here, I'm really just wanting to know what you all think I might be able to get for some of this stuff. I've searched around online, and haven't found much. From what I can tell, BMX racing isn't quite as popular as it used to me, however popular that was. So any help would be great. Thanks guys. Here's what I got:
Redline ProXL frame - This was the powdercoated red model you could only buy as a frameset around '98. 6061-T6 aluminum, handmade in the US. As far as I know, from looking at the Redline website, they don't offer this anymore. This is the frame that (I don't know if he's still around) John Purse used when he raced and took care of business in the late 90's.
Redline double clamp Flite cranks - I've only got the arms, with red S&M platforms attached to them.
Araya Super 7X rims laced up to GT Mohawk I hubs - I was suprised that after a few years of being wrapped up in towels in my dads garage that they still spin as true and free as they did when I was racing on them.
Profile crank arms - Still make em the same, I suppose.
S&M platforms - Army green, still in the box.
DK Jumping stem - Anodized red.
White Craig Reynolds frame - Bought just before he stopped making them. Reynolds Racing... this thing is hot.
That's pretty much it, as far as larger parts go. I've got some bars and forks lying around. Everything I listed is in great shape. All used, but all meticulously taken care of. Normal wear, minor scratches on frames, but no dings or dents.
Again I'm not selling any of this here, I'm just trying to get a feel for what I could get for this stuff if I do decide to sell it for. I will probably hold on to the Reynolds though. I've been out of the racing scene for a while now, so hopefully some of you who are still in touch with it can let me know what's going on.
"Uh-uh. Respek Knuckles."
Nice stuff, unfortunately probably not much more than sentimental value. It's just old enough to be old, not quite old enough to be classic. Some of the stuff's still current, even, unchanged since when you were racing. Ebay's probably your best bet, just set a reserve if you're not willing to part with it for less than you think it should go for. You can always re-list.
Definitely keep that reynolds, and if those are the US mohawks then keep them too. You'll have a pretty sweet ride.

I have been thinking though about possibly going back to do a few BMX races, which is why I think I'm going to keep the Reynolds and the wheelset. I've got my Powerlite bars with the "powerbend" that made it damn near impossible for anyone else besides me to ride my bike too, which I'd also be sporting. They still making those?
Thanks for the info guys,
someone on the forums (cant remember who) was looking for those araya rims, ahem ahem (speak up now if you wanna buy em ahem ahem, and a good set of Profiles (used or not) have some value...
