I recently picked up this old BMX bike for AU$5 at a garage sale. I was originally only interested in the Skyway Turbo Disc chain wheel, but decided I would strip the whole thing and give it a new lease on life. If anyone can ID the make, and even better the model, I would be very grateful. The frame has a distinctive gusset at the intersection of the top tube, down tube and head tube.

stripped frame - gusset

  • I can't help with your question, but the bike frame definitely looks robust. Good work for rebuilding it.

  • Unfortunately, gussets like that are common on BMX bikes, so you'll have to make close comparisons of its exact shape as well as other features of the frame such as the shape of the seat stays and dropouts. I'm leaning towards a Mongoose, but I'm not certain.

  • I'd also recommend posting your photos to the forums at BMXmuseum.com. Experts there might know it right away.

PMX Clubmaster from bmxmuseum.com

bmxmuseum has PMX bikes from 1982 to 1984 named "Clubmaster" or just "Club"

The bike pictured does not have original parts.

According to this link the PMX Club is a steel frame bike from Germany


I believe you're looking at a early form of a DK bike. I had one just like it. If the serial numbers are on the bottom you can Google it and it'll let you know

  • This is a bit short on details; you could greatly improve your answer by finding a decent picture of a bike like you're talking about and posting it here for comparison.

It is a Raleigh Rampar r10

I had one in the early `80s.

    Hi welcome to the site! BMX bicycles (and all bicycles in general) do look very much the same very often, so it would improve your answer a lot if you could provide any information to back it up, e.g. pictures, links to manufacturer catalogs for the product, pointing out unique frame features making it distinctive from everything else on the market etc. Dec 10 '19 at 9:16

    That's a good start because it gives some words to search for. Do you have any citations or supporting info? A clear photo of a rampar r10 would make this answer more comparable. Every photo I can see shows either two different sized holes in the gusset, or a caret-shaped cutout. There is a good resemblance though.

  • I'm also editing the word "Raleigh" into your answer because it seems plausible.

    I don't see any images online of Raleigh Rampar r10 models that match the OP's frame. Can you provide one?

I think I had this Bike. It was a cheapy kit in a box called a Sapphire. Firend of mine found it - best bike on a budget.

  • Hi, welcome to bicycles. When did you have your bike? Did you get it new? From where, what store, what locality? Was "Sapphire" the make or model? How can you be sure it's a match? Your answer doesn't really have enough information to be useful.
