loathe or love, the Activator brought full Suspension to the masses at budget prices, well it would seem, cheap, tacky, heavy and generally not a true MTB of the word, but many a boy believed he was riding a thoroughbred and not a beach donkey :) For a mere £15 this Activator was sourced and given a spruce up, Yes as my friend 'Sylus' said "You cant polish a turd' but you sure as hell can roll it in glitter,

Well here it is Before and After piccys.

Oh i know it will no doubt upset the purists out there, but hey, bothered??

:)

Haven't got a Raleigh MTB but seeing as they take a bit of stick on this site thought I'd just say that if it wasn't for Raleigh about 90% of the kids on our estate wouldn't be riding bikes (including me). Was the quality brand in the 70's round our way. So thanks to you and your dad. :)

I don't think this is a regional thing either. the majority of kids at our school had raleighs, a couple of townsends & falcons littered the streets with the odd low-end marin or GT, one kona (lava rock i think) and a few halfway decent claud butlers. I remember one of my mates being the envy of everyone with a red 24 speed raleigh max. probably complete tosh by any standard but in an early 90's setting on young impressionable minds it was the best bike in halfords!!!
