Do you still have your Supergoose? I ask because... have you seen how much Supergoose go for now if they are original parts examples? £1000 and up. Way up. Likewise a proper 80's PK Ripper... even higher money.
There is a supergoose frame, forks, bars and headset for sale near me. Seller says it was in his loft when he bought a house and he has no idea what it is, so he's asking peanuts for it. I'm tempted to buy it but I'm not sure what it would take to restock the bike with the right parts, and it would require the right parts to be worth a decent resale price.
I'd be interested to know how you like your Redline Proline. I'm thinking of getting a decent 24" BMX. Theres a lot of curse word modern "BMX style" 24" bikes out there, but I'd prefer an original Redline or GT 24". I've never ridden a 24" BMX though and I wonder if they scale up and still feel like a BMX or whether it just becomes a cruiser. I've got cruisers falling out of my loft like confetti, and what I actually want to do is hit the local skate park but on a bike that reflects my adult size.
I built the Skyway rep on the 1st page (the original frame was beyond repair) from a mix of the original parts where salvageable and period correct parts (nos & replica) which can be had for reasonable costs, if you keep an eye out on your favourite internet auction and shopping sites you can make a whole worth more than its component parts.
