Early BADD and Company BMX Bike - Model & Year?

The BMX museum is little help and the serial number is meaningless to me. Anyone know year and model? One clue is that the "GHP style" dropout was used 1987-1989 and "Patterson Style" used in subsequent years. Would mine be GHP or Patterson? Thanks in advance.

HaHa! first post in 11 years. Most of the time, I'm just looking for information and love reading through the threads... mostly vintage. Got frustrated a couple times when the urge hit to post some bikes up, but didn't have enough posts.

Thats pretty nice!!! just noticed it's a cruiser... Same company that was making S&M bikes at the time. Looks like BOSS cruiser bars as well...can't tell on the wheels from the pics. Don't let it go cheap if you sell.

Thanks for all your help and info. One last question: what's a BADD cruiser of this age and condition (excellent chrome, all original decals, a couple of them scuffed) worth in your opinion, sold just as frame/fork/bars? I.e. not built up. It's not being offered for sale, but that could change in the future. Interested to know ballpark value, even within a large range because pricing for rare bikes is probably more an art than science. My area of knowledge is road bikes, not BMX.

A couple sold on the bmxmuseum recently, both 24 cruisers like yours. One went for 360 and free shipping and the other for 400 with free shipping. Listed on Ebay, I'm not sure, I didn't check, but the BADD stuff doesn't come up too often. I have a cruiser from around 97 or so.

I'm into vintage road bikes, but spent a lot of time around bmx. I've been a member of the museum since 05 or so. Got the urge to race in my 30;s.
