  1. Pics of e.p?
  2. Damnif this was melbourne I'd buy it
  3. Sold pending payment elsewhere
  4. Late 80s/early 90s DK stem. Inverted XXL 65mm reach. Has some pitting on the top I've tried to show best i can in photos. I'm pretty sure if you tried to polish the pitting out you'd lose most of if not all the DK stamp. Rest of stem is nice with sharp edges but probably best left to as is and used on a rider. $80 pick up point cook or $100 posted and paypal.
  5. Just wondering what year this DK stem would be? I was guessing early 90's...
  6. Paints done. Will post some more pics later.
  7. Yep haros are 2000ish. GTs are early 90s to late 90s or somewhere thereabouts.
  8. could a build take any longer? almost 2 years after I started this thread all ive managed to do is get the seatpost out. It's not like I dont want to build the frame but unfortunately decals have been whats holding it up. They just dont exist in original or repop form...well until recently anyway. A couple of months back I saw a guy from Hungary on facebook posting some earlier Homeless repops for sale. I sent him a message asking if he had any pornstar decals available which he didnt but he knew someone with an original frame he could use to have some sets done. 2 weeks later and I had 2 sets arrive on my doorstep that look for all i can tell as good as the originals. So with decals in hand I dropped off the frame to the BMX Madman today and now i sit back and wait for him match up the original yellow paint and weave his magic. I've been collecting parts for this over the last 2 years and with fingers crossed I may actually have it built for Hurstbridge later on in the year.
  9. Funnily enough i found a lever and the old flip down pegs from my original bike at my parents house awhile back so I'll actually be able to use some parts from the original bike!
  10. They came as a shell only so you had to use othet intetnals. Suntour were a popular choice.
  11. Standard Bykes coaster shell and matching hub guard.
  12. being a mid school guy i dont delve into the old school world all that much but my first real freestyle bike was an 88.5 Sport that my old man bought me when i was about 14. i cracked it in 3 places, painted it blue and it was stolen from school never to be found again. I nearly choked on my coffee when this popped up on my facebook feed at 5am the other morning for a more than reasonable price! It's in the same sort of condition the one i had back in the day was when i got it so i'll be building as a survivor as close to my old one as i can remember which was basically stock anyway with a couple of small changes.
  13. the pure amount of content on facebook alone is why people are there. im not sure anything can be done to entice people back but to be honest most of the mid school boom of the last few years has happened on facebook. ozbmx never had those guys to begin with just the few that were here went to facebook to be with the majority
