Hello everyone. I am trying to get a bit of history from this bike that I just recently acquired. The person that sold me told me that the bike had belonged to a professional turkish racer. Anyone can give me an indication of the manufacturer and its aprox. worth in the market place.

Thank you

Without pictures of the bike and knowing where it is located, it is impossible for anyone to offer any kind of credible appraisal. And, without something proving providence, the claim to professional rider ownership is of no value(if you can prove providence, then value will be positively impacted - probably).

So, send us some good quality pictures to work with and as much information as you can provide about the bike and its history. Then sit back and hope for the answers to flow.

Hi Randy: I am unable to upload the pics. I go into manage accounts to include the pics, but once it uploads the pdf it tells me it upload failed. Any suggestions? Thank you

If the system is not permitting you to upload images you could post them to one of the hosting services and give the link to the gallery here.

The forum's image uploading system sometimes balks if a given file is too large. It is occasionally necessary to resize an image to get the system to accept it.

it's a problem with new users, can't post links either. I don't think it will allow a pdf upload anyway, got to be an image file

I upload my pictures to Flicker. Then, in a thread here, I insert a link to the picture I want to display. This is much easier and more effective than trying to directly upload pic to Bike Forums from my computer. Or you can just insert a link to the page that holds all of your pictures.

Hope I explained that correctly.

If you go to the Intro section and say hi to eight of your new friends by posting in their posts, you'll have the minimum 10 posts necessary to attach pix.
