Haro Backtrail X1

HEy everyone, Id like to get into bmx..but not seriously, just as a ride around town sometimes.

I have someone who wants to sell me a 05 I think Haro Backtrail X1, they say its in fine condition. They are asking 115 for that one .

they also have a second bike available, a year older(so im assuming 04) backtrail, but this one has 1 peice cranks, and definiaty shows wear, and has scratches, and stickers all over it. they want 980 for that one by itself.

However, for 150, he said he would sell me both. Now my question is, is 150 worth it for both of them? maybe I could use the junker more for learning about the sport/the bikes.

Thanks in advance.

the backtrail is a somewhat low line bike but a beginners bike. i guess its basic though.

Thats all im looking for, had been looking at some new bikes in the 250 range, but really didnt want to put down on a new bike right now.

I looked up the bike, and its said to be a dirt jumping bike...now with a simple switch of tires, does that make it fine as a street bike? Maybe doing a little bit of flatland, but nothing special, just messing around.
