So I found a taboo tiki bike for sale but it's in pretty rough shape from the looks of it. They're asking $250 any opinions?

Some of us paid around $500 +++ for our bikes in good condition. Recently saw one on eBay for around $900 and have seen them run up to $1500. Then again, might find one at a garage sale for $50 if the person doesn't know what they have. It is really up to you...looks like the artwork is pretty worn but maybe an artist on here can tell you how to improve that and certainly other parts can be restored. I am only one person and certainly not an expert...see if you can barter down the price due to the decals and go with what you feel in your heart.

If you get it...post pictures of your baby here, and let us know how the restoration goes.

EDIT...always be on the lookout for parts.
