  1. Past hour
  2. It could be a 1980 pro-line. I’m pretty sure that’s when they started coming out with drilled forks. You might want to check if they are factory drilled.
  3. Today
  4. Use some “never dull” on the chrome. Wipe down the painted and plastic parts with some mr clean “magic eraser” sponges. Put some era correct tires and a seat and you’re good to go.
  5. The stem looks like a Nitto to me.
  6. Thanks for the interest. Not sure what the stem is, maybe Suntour? Cranks are Keihin Where do you find the redline stamp on the bars?
  7. Pedals would need to go as well if you want period correct. Maybe other parts as well (chain, sprocket, brake, etc) What is the stem? The bars look Redline to me. Are they stamped?
  8. That ad is really cool. Thank you!
  9. Thanks for the info RL. Just confirming it's a 79 Proline Mk2? The rear brake is a dia compe lever to weinmann MX caliper. Powder coat? Okay cool. Is there a particular white they used?
  10. Mello Yellow sweepstakes promotion bike. I can’t imagine it being too old but I thought it was cool. I left it where it was.
  11. Haven’t updated this in a while. I’m still at it. Still getting some good stuff but not quite as often. 1987 Mongoose Expert and M1 Mag:
  12. You looking for something new or old school? Like TrulyOdd said... define what kind of riding you do and your height. A new school flatland bike is the worst choice for general all around riding.
  13. Mike Carruth was forced to upgrade the site to a newer platform a couple years ago. Unfortunately 99% of the content didn’t migrate. He says he still has the data but I have my doubts about whether he’ll ever get around to uploading it.
  14. Very cool. Microline fork. Ditch the seat and tires and you’re almost there. What is the rear brake? Too far gone for a survivor wipe down in my opinion. Full powder coat is in order. Not sure if decals are readily available for this. I know mid 80s decals are non existent since AJK quit making them. Good luck and have fun with it!
  15. Yesterday
  16. Hi, wanting help with my restoration project and would value any help. Thanks in advance! I think it’s a ‘79 Proline? Has a 5” head tube, serial is #341477. Was thinking of stripping and respraying as it’s a bit rusty. Bad respray done in the 80s. Any opinions on how best to do this to make it period accurate?
  17. Anyone wants to help out.. https://www.gofundme.com/f/helping-bubbas-mom-expenses-and-living-support?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=m_pd+share-sheet
  18. Last week
  19. This is another sad moment for our BMX community. He was a good guy and will be missed.
  20. Wow, this is really sad news. I really feel sorry for his family. I have an eight year old son and I’m trying to live a healthier lifestyle and be a positive role model. I’ve been sober now for the past year. The craziest part of life is you just never know what is going to happen. RIP
  21. Im not really familiar with them after 88 but yeah it appears to be an original color for ‘90. I’m thinking US because of the sn format and location and the ‘4130’ on the bologna cut which I've never seen on a GT from Taiwan.
