Chrome Skyline Silver Trak BMX from 1980s....

A neighbour tossed this out yesterday (after storing it in the garage for about 35 years) and I grabbed it.

Canadian made, but all Japanese parts. Aluminum alloy wheels.

Fully chromed frame and it was filthy but the grime washed up nicely. All original.

Skyline Silver Trak BMX.

Just needs new tires to certify.

Is this worth fixing up ? All it really needs is a good cleaning and new cables, pads and tires.
Is there any interest from collectors for this sort of thing?

Nice save, it's defiantly collectible but the problem is that it's on the lower end. There's always BMX guys out there looking though.
