I know they are not that old, but it seems they are out of business so maybe their history needs to be recorded. The only reason I am putting this up is I bought a nice Skavenger bmx at a yard sale and there does not seem to be much on them out there at all.

My guess from what research I could find is that someone in N.Y. city decided to try and make their own brand of bmx and called it Skavenger with the "K" turned backwards. They probably had some frames made, some in the USA, and probably hung standard parts on them, not junk but not super-high-end except for on the "team" bikes of course.

It looks like they just lasted a few years, less than five. There does not seem to be hardly any bought or sold anywhere, maybe because there is no interest in them, and maybe because not many were made anyway. There is a Google hit where there top team rider was in jail and his team racing bike was auctioned off on Ebay to raise money for his legal fees! It went for about $900.

I would appreciate it if someone could point me to the story on these bikes. Thank-you....

Seems to me that there are a few manufacturers that sprouted during the BMX era and went out in a flash.
