Thinking of selling my old BMX, but unsure of where best to try and sell it. I've had it since the late 80's and it's in pretty good condition and it's very rare.

I bought it at the national finals in Derby from a guy who's son had raced for the Reynolds team and it was one of 20 limited edition bikes they made for team riders. I replaced the tyres recently with a vintage set that were identical to the perished ones I took off, so all is in original spec.

I'd like to get a minimum of 500 for it as this is the cost of an Isla bike I would like to buy for my (increasingly not so) little one.

Any advice or tips for selling such a machine greatly appreciated.

Have a look on pinkbike.com in the USA BMX classified section they have UK & EU sections too . It could be worth having a look for UK Teams as well & check relevent websites & forums sorry not sure which these would be though .
Have you thought about checking out a few race meets as well eg the nationals and stuff ? I may know a few dudes who could be interested as well a friend recently bought an original Redline BMX & it looks lovely .

Also seen rare bikes sell at big events like NASS too . I hear the serious buyers are in the states and Japan at the moment . Wouldn't really know where to start to be honest .

If you send me some pics I can show a few dudes who are on the ball eg Gary Woodhouse Curtis Bikes , Matt Hodkinson , Grant Yurberry etc they'll know much more than me . I'll send you an email addy in a sec .
