    Just found this at a local fleamarket this weekend. I was walking down the aisle and I saw glint of gold and when I saw it was on a rim I .... near started sprinting towawd it :D :D Its in awesome condition, I think it was just used as a grocery getter for a better part of its life. Does anyone have any info on these things? I cant find anything on the it :cry: :cry:

    Yeah it's a beauty, I'm always tempted to pick up a pair of those glow in the dark grips when I see them.

    Definitely a great collection of gold goodness on that bike.

    I like how they mimicked the "Sidewinder" logo on the down tube. :D

    Awesome bike, I've seen some frames on Ebay from time to time but other than that I know nothing about them either.
    Great FIND!

    Great bike, can you share the price so we can all decide it we would've bought it too?

    BTW- Nice socks. :p

    I picked it up for 120 believe it or not, most bike stuff here at the flea market is ridiculous, People are asking regularly over 300 for stuff :( Thanks they are Haynes haha

    As a whole or parts I think you could easily double your money, but I'd buy it at that price to ride.

    I ended up selling that bike a month after I got it for a bunch more then I paid for it and Ive regreted it ever since and what do you know, a couple weeks ago another one popped up locally on craigslist in the same if not better condition albeit with different gold annodized cranks and I swaped msgs with the seller for a couple of days and watched it to see if the price would go down or if someone would buy it as I didnt have enough money at the time until oneday I sold another one of my bikes, then I swooped in and ended up picking it up for the same price I bought the last one for, only this time its a keeper. :):):):) I just need a bmx seat and some bmx bars with skinwall tires and Im good to go!!
