  1. While I hate to talk about another site. I was just over at the museum and saw this posted up for sale. This frameset has some history behind it and has a serial number on the BB FP013. Factory Pilot/Pro.....just was curious if anyone else has any info, insight on serial #'s. My OM is FP014 on the BB. Sean Ewing? Any help? Anyone else have an OM with FP in the serial number? Where these frames meant for Factory Riders?
  2. I admit that my title/description was off, kinda harsh and disrespectful. I was excited, I was thrilled and didnt think twice on my decision to post it up the way I did. Now i wish i never shared what i bought but it's too late now.
  3. Go kill myself....no one would miss me. WTF? You blocked and deleted me from your phone.....I swear you are worse than a 5 year old who just got told NO for the first time and you are throwing a tantrum. I feel sorry for you, seriously I do. You're seriously are off your rocker Brian. It doesnt matter what I do with the stuff or the money, you guys think I'm a thief no matter what. You are right, my first thought was to keep the gold PK and put it on a shelf and sell off the rest, my money, my decision.....or do I have to ask first? I find it a bit nuts that some people think i have to drive to a "yard sale" educate the seller, then buy the stuff. Once again, I paid what was asked.
  4. Wow, some serious childish name calling and sour grapes up in here! The guilt trip is not working, at all. Jealously is the biggest form of flattery. I feel like I dont need to explain myself, but I'm not gonna just sit here and let you all roast, call me names and try to throw dirt on me. I had the first thread deleted since it was so off topic it was a headache and to put the cherry on the shit sundae, Brian Hays brought my 9yr old son into it by saying I would sell him if I could make a dollar (that was low, real low, most of you know how tough his life has been since the moment he was born and how lucky we are to still have him on this side of the dirt) The last few weeks I got tons of texts, messages on Facebook, calls and voicemails. Some were my friends calling me to congratulate me or to tell me I was being roasted on here and other places, some were nasty, obscene and just ridiculous from people I don't know or havent spoken to in years. So my phone # has been passed around.....cool! I was invited up there, I took the 12+ hour 700+ mile round trip from PA to RI with cash in my pocket and no clue what the prices were gonna be. I was told this was round 3 of selling off the collection. I was told that the "doors opened at 10am", I showed up at 730am along with 4 other guys in the parking lot. Dave Gomes showed up, got out of his truck and asked "you guys here for the bmx yard sale?" We all answered yes and followed him over to house. When we showed up, a handful of other guys were already there, digging and finding stuff. The "big wallet" guys werent there, i was shocked on how much stuff was still there...was this all priced using Ebay and the forums as a price guide and that's why there was so much left or was this collection that big? I got out of my truck and started digging. Everyone was told to make piles and when your ready, Dave and his friend would price the stuff. We went through everything I had in my pile, emptying all boxes to show that there wasnt anything secrectly stuffed in there and all items were complete. He had a notebook, wrote down my name and what was in my pile as we opened them up. I was given the prices, I paid those prices, I didn't haggle or complain. I'm an SE Racing collector, I still have all of the SE framesets in my collection. My intentions were to buy as much as I could with what money I brought, sell off a few things, make my money back and keep whatever I wanted.....remember, it's my money, not yours. I worked for that money, i drove to the "bmx yard sale" and picked up a good amount of stuff, I paid the prices I was told. The last item I had in my pile was a NOS red/silver Shimano DX post. Dave's friend took it from me, looked at it and said "last one of these sold for 700 on Ebay....we would need 400 for it" I put it down, someone instantly picked it up. One thing I wish I never did was post the stuff as a whole. I should have just shared with friends and sold what i wanted, but I wanted my dick stroked, I wanted to share, boast and brag about what I bought. So my question is, why am I instantly marked, tagged as an asshole, a shit stain on this hobby and just a flipper? My whole basement is filled and displayed with BMX items, bikes I have built up since getting into this hobby in 2000/2001, jerseys, helmets, decals, pictures, autographs and more! Like I said before, I collect SE Racing items....i bought mostly all SE Racing items. So if I bought the stuff to keep, that's ok, but if I bought the stuff to flip, all hell breaks loose and I'm an asshole, a thief, a midget, a troll......etc. To the few guys I have either spoken to on the phone or traded texts back and forth and then see you change your tune on here and other forums, go kick rocks, pound sand and grow up.
  5. The last one that sold, sold for 5k and was in 2011, it was a restored frameset.
  6. Tom Gomes, long time underground collector.
  7. A east coast collector passed away and his family was selling the collection off. This is what I found! NOS Gold PK Ripper with boxes/paperwork/washers NOS 1984 Yellow and Orange Freestyle Quads! NOS 1990 Quad frame NOS 24inch threaded LG forks (check out those long legs/dropouts welded up higher) GHP Trix (not NOS but mega clean) NOS padsets and more!
  8. C'mon Tony.....step it up! Send me that serial number when you have a chance.
  9. So far there are 49 4130 chromoly Quads on the list!
  10. Yowsers! That's a beauty! 7x/7c combo is something you dont see too often and I dig it! That # plate is the cherry in the PK sundae! Great build Tom!
  11. 9yrs in between the last stunner you assembled and this stunner! WOW, I have been chomping at the bit wondering what you had up your sleeve when I saw you were looking for parts (there has gotta be another right behind this....) Super impressive Tom, great job. The fog pics are really fitting too.....it would have been cool if there was a shot of you walking from out of the fog towards the bike....like you rose up from your 9yr BMX nap and came back with the sickness!
