I've just bought a 1990 Technium Heat, the same as wot I had BITD. Techniums are nice in my opinion, although do they qualify to be a 'real' Raleigh if they're from the USA?

Is this your one?

viewtopic.php?p=778702

Without ever having ridden one the purple mirage has always been the 501 Raleigh that, to me, most appeals.

thanks for this thread, where else could I post a photo of my pride and joy......sadly I think it will soon be time to retire this trusty steed. If and when the even more garish PUCH Theridion turns up the plan is to do a full frame and fork transplant. I love these retro bikes that most people think are rubbish. I mean c'mon!! Made in Great Britain 531 frame for pennies and who in their right mind would try to steal this.....

These do come up on ebay every once in a while, old raleighs never seem to sell for much, so you'll get a bargain whatever. If your thinking town bike then http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Raleigh-Pione ... 232aabf8a7 I know it's not mtb but it would make a very fine monstercross build...
