    Can you identify this bike?

    I can deal with the paint. (It is a chrome bike vandalized with grey primer.) Solid bike for $35?

    I think you think that is what all bikes are.

    I dont think it is a contest about who has the newest or most expensive bike. For $35 you cant expect a bike to be top of the line. But a bike could surely be worth $35. No one knows what it is?

    Hard to tell much of anything from that tiny, blurry pic. Might be an 80s/90s Haro or Torker with that twin top tube, or any of a bazillion ****ty knockoffs. I wouldn't buy it though, even for $35. It's gonna cost you way more than it's worth to get it back into riding condition.

    I wanna PayPal the guy $35 to destroy it with a sawz-all, just so there is one less ****ty bike to look at. The thing probably weighs forty pounds and rides like ****.

    The fact that the knob who painted it with a can of Krylon made sure to also include the tires cracks me up. People sure are strange.

    Why would a vandal NOT paint the tires?

    I can get the PayPal address if someone needs it.

    I kind of think that the reason for this thread was missed. I didn't expect this to be a diamond in the rough. You cant ask much for $35 but you could still get a decent bike for $35. Not everyone needs something high dollar to ride. A 10yo doesn't even need a new walmart bike. They could ride a used crap bike and wouldn't know the difference for a while.

    I assumed this was the bike forums for a 20" bike. Obviously not all 20" bikes are BMX but i think many are lumped into this category. Maybe i should look at the other forums more closely.

    I only asked on the off chance that it might have been a somewhat decent bike/frame. I was wondering if anyone could identify it. Not a rundown on how it was garbage or how bad it is/was. I am not really sure how you could tell, but their might be a way. (I find it curious how immediately something might be called a POC with the limited info given.)

    I was told that the Hoffman i was interested in was a POS too. I went ahead and bought it. I cant possibly understand why someone would say it is junk for what i paid for it. It was the same price as a department store bike was obviously built much better. The differences were obvious when compared. It might not be up to par with what many of you would want but it was certainly worth the $125. That is all i was asking, was it worth the money? It was as the same money buys a department store bike. You might not feel that the department store bikes are worth the money, but the truth remains that they sell for that range of prices of prices despite their quality. Would you rather have a Walmart bike or a Hoffman for the money? (I know, i know. If you had to choose.)

    Are there forums for general 20" bikes. Not everybody needs a high dollar bike as not everyone puts their bike(s) through a lot of stress. BMX bikes of the past werent as good as they are now but 25+ years ago they were still around, and they still did what they were designed for.

    I'm pretty sure that is an old school Haro blammo. It was a decent bike back in the day, beside the fact that the head tubes would crack. It would make a great bike for a little kid or for the beginner flatlander.
    It is worth $35 if not just for parts.

    Some of the younger crowd on here can be pretty silly.
