It pains me to write this thread...Been away from the scene proper long, I pretty much quit riding 4 years ago. Iíve ridden my bike twice in the last 2 years. So now I think I might be time to part with my bike.

I have no idea what second hand parts  are worth these days. What is the following spec worth as say a complete custom? Or as separate parts alone?

Obviously the bike is worth a lot to me sentimentally, but in real life what it is worth to me and to a  buyer are two different things.

So what's it worth as a complete? i was thinking at leats £500-£600.

How much would the bike parts sell for? I am guessing half original price maybe ( am i being optimistic???)

Thanks in advance.

I would say more like £350 for the complete bike. Second hand BMX prices are pretty low, especially with how old some of your parts are. If you sold it all separately you might make a bit more but it's hard to say.

If I was you, I'd just hold onto it unless you really need the money. From my experience, people always regret selling their setups.

probably wouldn't even get that. 250 all day

might actually get more splitting since there's some decent parts on it

Cheers guys.

I guess if i go sell it , it will be best to break it.

Thing is it's sitting in the shed gathering dust. I don't see myself riding it anymore. Think i'll ebay it and see if iget any takers. Worth a punt i guess.

Let me know if you part it and want to send that seat across the pond.

animal had to brand themselves as "A Bikes" in the uk cos theres already another company called animal who make watches and shit. they just used the logo for a while, and then on others they said abikes on the front instead
