Alas your calendar is broken ! The red and black Ozark was 1987, the red and white one was 1988 and there was a multicoloured fluoro one in the catalogue (but never available in the shops) in 1990.

...Pedantic mode off...

Terry..

:? Scant your right. It is a first mtb thread. It's only the bars off an old Yam RD that were used on the Raleigh :wink:

Original Black & White Raleigh Maverick - but only 5 speed :cry:
I was 9 years old and I think it was a 21" frame.
(My Dad: "He'll grow into it")
I rode it through the woods around Stockport and Goyt Valley for many happy years!

Always remember the 1st day I had it, I popped a wheelie showing off to some girls and the front wheel rolled off and away.
Good job I was on grass, also a good job I hadn't started puberty!

(They still bruised though!)

My first mtb was a 1988 falcon [mums catalogue] blue with white forks!
Then my first proper mtb, a bright green muddy fox courier comp.
I had that for about 1 year, then in 1990 i found myself spending alot of time in my lbs.This is when the need to spend kicked in!! I bought a saracen special edition! full xt groupset, fillet brazed tubes and what i thought , a lovely purple paint job! :shock:

Check out ebay.de if you fancy stepping back in time heathy :wink:

Discounting the Dawes Zed lady's frame which really got me started, my first mtb was a 16" blue Diamondback Camarillo with purple-stickered Scott Unishocks, Diacompe 987's? and drilled SS5 levers, purple Kalloy stem and seatpost (post was polished leaving just the clamp purple, x-lite stylee - once a fettler, always a fettler), polished LX cranks, purple Odyssey Svelte pedals with clips and blue straps and white Tioga strappull thingeys (can't remember what they were called) - God I loved that bike despite the pig iron frame - there's a Camarillo on ebay at the mo' but it's giant-sized . :cry:
