Some of these bikes might be classics, but they're not worth that asking price. Ask for a more realistic amount,...

I thought 1400 was crazy for an old bmx bike. Then I went on ebay. Maybe you might get lucky on e-bay. i saw mongose bikes listed from 700 to 2400!
I don't follow bmx prices so don't have a clue what they really sell for.
