Nephew is down for half term and has brought his BMX with him for me to help him rebuild (ie rebuild for him) so I need a bit of help having no experience of BMXs (since I was a kid and had a chrome Raleigh).
On first inspection:
Grips (green) are knackered. He wants ones without the flange as they are not cool apparently.
Stem cap - for some reason has holes in it, I am assuming someone had the cables going down though the cap but there is no longer any brakes.
No rear brake - I tried but he won't have one. Am I being uncool suggesting one?
Chainring - looks shagged. It's a blue anodised on (to match the stem and seat clamp) and has the centre hole and off centre bolt.
BB feels okay
Chain - it's a half link chain, not checked the wear but assuming it's knackered. Doesnt seem to be any way to remove it easily so going to have use a chain breaker.
Rear sprocket and freewheel - it slips badly and the teeth are worn. I've not had a proper look yet but I am wondering if it's just the lock nut it lose but due to the wear I am replacing the sprocket anyway so I assume it's all one unit?
Rear hub bearings - shot.
Rear rim - he claims it keeps getting punctures and halfords had a look and claimed he needs a new rim. Not taken a proper look yet but we'll see.
Rear tyre - seen better days
Pedals - bearings okay but all pins gone so needs some new ones.
He's got a stack of CRC vouchers I gave him and we need to get bits quickly so halfords (have sale on again) seems like a good bet also.
Suggestions/what to look for/how to change stuff would be greatly appreciated!
