Hi this was my bike growing up and is all original in good condition. Just needs a new chain. I was going to save it for my kids but now think I want to sell it. Any idea what I should ask for it? Thanks in advance.

I just picked up the identical bike just missing crank and pedals. Did you ever figure out the value?

Depends on location. Those pop up on the cl here from time to time. Got a $25 one in 2014, there were $200 ones that sat unsold this summer.

I have a chain if needed.
Awesome. The bike needs some love and I'm not sure but I think the brakes at least the front one. However I do have the chain just no sprocket/ crank/ pedals.....yet I think they are where I found the bike just buried. I found the rims in the same area but in a different pile.

It's a California bike but, Yeah I don't think I'm gonna do much to it, as far as putting a bunch of money in it just to sell for less. However it's a 1987 and I'm seeing some crazy prices on that year performer out there so I need to do more research.

Yeah, they’re cool bikes! I dig em. You’re right, CA should do a lot better than Iowa on these! Or better yet, EBay loves them!

That’s a desirable GT. 87 was a great year for these bikes. I prefer 85 but I love these too. People will pay up for that all original. As found is prefect. Just needs cleaning.

I’m good but thanks. If you want top dollar sell it on BMX museum. The pro membership will cost you $20 but there are no selling fees. As opposed to some other listing sites. I’d keep it if it were me. Especially if it was YOUR childhood bike.

The blue 87 is iconic and one of the coolest freestyle bikes of the 80's. Drillium style brake, seat clamp and of course the 4 holes on the ends. They are Taiwan and some Japan that year, but many bmx came from overseas.

If I could find these in complete or decent shape for $200 I'd buy them up.

:flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed: Times Iike these I wish our town had a dump! Do a completed auction search on eBay and you'll see you just found about $2,000 to $2,500 on your dump trip...

With the prevalence of FB Marketplace, Craigslist, eBay, etc. and the fact that like everyone has a smartphone these days why wouldn't someone do a quick check to see what they have or at least make a free post so a bike could end up in the hands of a needy kid?

Well, their idiocracy, your gain! Enjoy!
