So i got a tip off that there would be some old school gold at the local tip shop this morning,
i got there at 6am didnt want to miss out on the major prize...
I was the first one to get to this magnificent tip off winner takes all prize...
but it came at a price (a huge price for a tip shop recycle centre) $1000 to be precise.
1k for a run down bmx bike ... WTF?
I decided some advice on what i should pay for something like this was in order, so a few ph calls to the don,
and then a few more with some good negotiation information, and i was ready to bargain.
These guys were tough as they had googled pk ripper and assumed that every pk was worth 2.5 trillion no matter the condition.......ok, sorry for babbling on, i ended up payin $600 for it. What do you guys think?
Did i pay too much? Did i get a good buy? Bad buy? Impulse buy?
My little mate Darcey calls me crazy sue ... lmfao, i think he's right !!!
1983 pk ripper with tange forks, frame is pretty clean with drops a little chewed but not too bad.
gen 3 profile cranks, (need rechrome) suntour bear trap pedals (still a newbie not sure of correct term)
mid school gt bars, uni seat, suntour stem, mx 1000 brake caliper (i think) suntour seat clamp.
wheels are steel boat anchors. brake lever ***e as well
Your thoughts are appreciated good or bad, i am interested in what you guys have to say !!!
AND NO I AM NOT PARTING IT OUT AT THIS STAGE !!
Thanks for reading and have a good weekend
