Two pair and a random diamond

Diamondback that is! Was out cruising over to my storage unit to install the new radio in my Sunfire and I spotted a yard sale sign. Turns out it was a fundraiser for our local humane society (animal shelter). I see a few bikes and stuff so I stopped. Bought this awesome chrome Diamondback bmx bike. Looks to be 90% original and still has it's Diamondback plastic pedals (the ones that broke the first time you landed a jump)

I was a bit low on cash so I made a quick trip to the ATM and grabbed more cash and came back... Allegedly doing 50 in a 35...
Anyway I get back and the goods are still there. 2 radical old scooters that are in pretty decent shape, 2 cool old green ladies tank bikes one of which is a Skyrider Deluxe same exact thing as my build off bike but a ladies frame. Story is it has been garage kept since new and I have no reason to doubt it. This thing is beautiful... it even has it's original color matched Troxel seat. The other tank bike is a little ratty but great build material. And the prices will blow your wormhole into another stratosphere.

Diamondback BMX $12
Nice Skyrider Deluxe $15
Ratty tank bike $5
2 scooters $3 each

Well with skate parks making a huge comeback in my community they are seeing a resurgence and I'm happy to see kids riding again. I even took my fat bike a few laps on the BMX park.

Sorry for the poor video quality phone mount was pointing a little low and light was fading fast. Had a blast though.

Went out today and bought 2 little girl's bikes for $20 each because it was cheaper than buying tires and tubes and I got both scooters up and going.

Total investment of $23 each. Gonna price them at $40 each or both for $75 and see what happens.

So I bought 2 kids bikes for $20 each to use tires off of, sold the purple scooter for $35 and the other for $40. Traded the rougher of the two girls bikes for $10 and a moped project that I am selling tomorrow for $50, and I got a parts bike $40 for the Diamondback as well as ordered new grips $15.

Profits:
Purple scooter
Profit $12

Green scooter
Profit $17

Ladies parts bike
Profit $55

And still have the Diamondback and nicer girls bike I'm holding on to for now till I clean them up. Also have a few kids bikes to junk which will up my profits and a 20 inch bike to strip parts off of for another project. Oh and found this sweet repair stand for $10 at the local flea market!

That's great when your hard work pays off! Sweet when you can make a few $ and keep some stuff for future projects too.
