So I have been looking for a BMX for my son for a while now, I have been scouring Gumtree and Junkmail for ages without sucess.

I was seriously considering the Raleigh Burner at Makro, currently on special.

Anyway long story short, I walked past cash crusaders this afternoon and found a GT 24" Power Series BMX looking for a new home.

They were not prepared to drop the price, so I took it for R699.00. (Makro Raleigh 20" R499.00 on special)

 

It needs some work but its in all round good nick with most of the original parts.

 

After a bit of research I understand it's a 06 model.

 

I went with my heart on this one.

 

Anyone know anything more about this model?

It is an old racing BMX, allot better than a Burner...those things are a waste of money!

so ya, good buy.

Its a solid bike with strong parts...child proof.

Omw a brilliant buy well done

The fork, bars and seat are not original the bars are too high for a cruiser but still a good buy

bmx bikes are hardly ever kept original.

Def better than a burner, you could easily get the same for it if u needed to sell again

Good buy. But its an adult bike!

 

I am sure he can grow into it in the next couple of years while dad tests it out for him ;)
