Hey!

I know I should have posted BEFORE I bought it buuuttt..
I just bought a bmx with ZERO experience.
I have almost no money to speak of currently, and wanted to get some experience before I attempted my own build (when finances allow).. so I headed to the pawn shop and bought a wally world reject for $80

It's a DK Cleveland.. and my reasons for getting it are thusly:
I want a bmx
I'm a bit bigger and older than your typical rider (5'11", 31yo) and it actually fit me well..
I want a bmx now..
I dont think I have the skill set to work on a build yet, so a complete bike made more sense..
I want a bmx now, and I'm broke..
Also, it's 100% chromoly.. .. ..... ........ .....right??

So what say ye... did I get royally fucked? or is this a good way to get my foot in the door without much investment?

Also, breaks are worn.. tires are flat.. no obvious damage, very very little rust (will be sanded and painted with aggressive colors, so watch out)


any input is appreciated.. can i get my ass branded now?

You should get picked up by a well known BMX company very soon.

$80 isn't bad. I don't know how it looks but just upgrade it over time as things break n stuff.

Thats pretty good. My first bike was made by me going down to the tip and grabbing different parts from each bike then making one from that. then i bought some poverty parts from dans.
It all fell apart though by the first month. Don't know what condition yours is in though but is sounds pretty good.

That's a $200 bike that you got for 80 bucks. Pretty good deal if you ask me.

The post comes off as very facetious, therefore, a sarcastic reponse. Don't get your panties in a wad, sketchy.
