Redline Rogue

I found a redline rogue frame on ebay for $30. I was wondering if this frame was even worth my time and effort?

Also, I found a skyway frame on ebay and it looks pretty solid. Anyway shed some light on this frame, guy says it's from 1985. Thanks guys

No - go with a newer/better designed frame.

Are you planning on building a bike from parts and do you already own a bunch of parts? It is a MUCH better value to buy a bike complete with good stuff at any price point. Parting a bike up is very expensive or you end up with garbage parts... like a Rogue frame or an ancient Skyway.

Skyway wall really cool and fairly cutting edge - 20 years ago.

What type of bmx riding are you looking to do? Street & Dirt? Flat? Race? It will greatly impact the recommendations you will get.

I guess I'll be doing street. I found a Solid Duke frame that looks pretty solid. I still want to go the build up route, even if it goes over my budget. I have a road bike and a freeride bike that I currently own and I want to add a BMX bike to help with basic trick riding to help my freeride.
