The SR-71 has landed. Ordering grips, tires and tubes. Once the parts arrive, it should be quick work. All of the bearings are sealed and will be checked, but everything appears to be mechanically in order, except for the brake.

I had a hassle with ordering some grips to match the ones he had on there, ordered shortly after he dropped it off. Giving the company they were ordered from time to ship turned into a ridiculously long wait, followed by getting crickets back on repeated attempts to contact them. Fortunately slaypal refunded my money. This thing is 100% ready to rock.

Where was that from I had one and believe that to be my old bike I still have the owners manual and recipt where we bought it new Christmas of 1999 frame only was 500. Any way it’s crazy that sprocket and wheels have stayed the same this whole time

Looking to buy it back

Considering the skyrocketed prices of collectible BMX over the past years, I wish you luck. That frame is worth more now than when it was new

I've been outbid on SPIN wheels more times over the years than I care to recall. Crazy prices



It would be an interesting story if it did turn out to be the same bike. How it travelled cross country from the midwest to end up in CO. Who owned it. etc...
