Hi, can anyone tell me more about my brothers old BMX? I've tried searching BMX 10 and can't find this model anywhere! Is it worth restoring or beyond help now? Would really be nice to know what it is and if i can get parts? Photo

It certainly looks like a Mini Burner though this is the first time I've seen one without the Burner/Mini Burner specific decal designs. There appear to be others out there with the 'bmx 16' decals but I can't work out what separates this model from the more easily identifiable example in the link above.
I loved my Mini Burner. Happy days. šŸ˜Š

OK,I just triple checked....

The bike from the museum is miss dated. (notice the head tube gusset.)

This is the bike I matched to the OP's bike.

So it is a 84 burner mini. tongue

Bloghogs thank you so much for taking the time to find out for me. Probably not worth all the effort to restore but good to know. Thank you, your help is appreciated!

All depends on the end goal.

I am restoring a 72 Schwinn that my wife's grampa was planning to restore years ago. He passed away and it was given to me.

It's not really worth a lot, but it is a labor of love. Plus, most of what it needed was a good cleaning. Looks like your bike could use a good cleaning and fresh grease and it would make a huge difference and be cheap if you can do it yourself or know someone who can.

Three piece cranks, and a bash guard on the sprocket..

That lil guy was ahead of it's time..

Tires/tubes and chain lube/wire brush and it's good to go probably...

Iā€™d be over it like a rash for my little guy. Hard to get decent kids bikes.

Raleighs/British bikes had 3 piece cranks.I have an old Raleigh banana bike frame and an Oxford ā€œMxā€ style frame (20ā€ w/ dual rear shocks) and both of them have 3 piece cranks Pretty cool

Just make sure the brush is a SOFT bristle setup otherwise it'll mangle the paint.

If anything, cleaner, rags, your hands and an old toothbrush would do the trick.

Certainly... I was just saying a wire brush for the chain.. In my head picturing a little brass one similar to a tooth brush..

For sure, just wanted to clarify for someone who might not understand.
