I don't know about your country, but mine has a lot of rip-off/fake bmx parts mostly easterns. Here are some of it.

Odyssey Aerospace/7KA fake rims

Haro(they call it WTP sometimes) "Furious" Frame - I guess they call it HARO because of the Chevron cutout on the seat bridge.

Eastern "Night Tramp" has gussets on both TT and DT and has oversized HT
Photo

A generic fork that has an "Eastern" stamped on the dropouts.
Photo

"Eastern" Cranks
Photo

Eastern "Commando"
Photo

WTP Addict - Look at those chainstays

there are still some out there. I'll post pics when I get a chance to find them.

I'm sure that Odyssey would love to know that their rims are being bootlegged. That's funny.

As for some of the eastern parts you posted (cranks, forks, maybe frame?), they look legit... Yes, eastern doesn't make them and they are generic catalog parts, but eastern DOES stamp their logo on them exactly like that and use them for their complete bikes. They dont appear to be falsely stamped, they came off an eastern complete bike.

The rims are hilarious. I would have atleast used like Alienation PBR/Blacksheeps since they look kind of similar to 7kas.

According to them (easternbikes) those are indeed fakes. I almost buy one of those eastern complete ripoffs because they were cheap, cheaper than the entry level haro 100.1. But further searching the web I can't seem to find infos about the frame so I went to buy the haro instead. I heard from people that it was easily bent and snaps.

BTW, does your place sell fake items like these?

Nah lol. Not shops anyways. Kinda hard to fake an American company's product and then sell it in America... good way to get in lots of trouble haha

I think it's becuase there are few BMX parts available here that they make fake parts and put stickers of well-known bmx companies.

Here you go bro! look at that 7KA sticker on a fake Aerospace rim. They are advertising it as ODSY Aerospace yet they put 7KA stickers on.haha

What's funny is actual bike shops do sell them not just by a person online. And people are biting the whole ODSY rim thing.

BTW, where you from?
