Not sure they've yet designed a weighbridge that could handle an Activator.

You know Raleigh weren't the only people guilty of exploiting the naivety of the young, the old, and the clueless with a monsterous 'full suss' creation.

Also featuring the largely cosmetic suspension which merely served to increase weight - and cause further deterioration to handling by introducing playfilled pivots and rocking stanchions and fork legs...

Ladies and gentlemen I present for your delectation/derision*
