Hey everyone,

I acquired this today, it was local-ish so I took the plunge and went to view it. I believe it's had 1 owner from new. Comments are welcomed ;)

My mate had one of these and I had a Lizard.
Could do with some bigger bar ends :lol:

Totally original condition :)

The bar ends are akin to tri-bars, they'll be removed and new sponge grips fitted.

Then a clean up.

Raleigh Lizards were 8) too.

Wow !!


I've noticed mundane bikes are going for silly money on eBay at the moment. I saw a Carrera Subway with busted gears and bottom bracket go for £85! :shock:

That seatpost is right down like my freebie Moonrun was. I wonder if it moves? :mrgreen:

From what I can gather this bike is circa 1988. I've not tried moving the seatpost as yet but steel on steel should, hopefully, be easier to unseize if needed.

I actually bought 2 bikes from the seller but I went there just to buy this 8)

I know ebay is crazy prices, I stay well away :lol:

Ebay prices....this has no chance, look how rusty and crap it is.
Look how rusty the wheels are and they've taken pic of part of wheel with no rust.

That Lizard needs loads doing to it, £20 tops imo.

I'm unsure about fitting alloy wheels to the Mustang due to the rather weighty nature of it :lol:

Other than some grips and a service it needs very little.
