Hi folks,

Just introduced myself on the MTB forum due to my 1993 Kona Lava Dome but thought I would say hello here too based on my even older 1983 original Ultra Burner that I received for my 11th birthday.
I had some great fun on this bike during the eighties both racing and freestyle tricks but then drifted away in my high school years before moving onto MTB in the early nineties.
I still own the bike and it is still all original. Parts were replaced when worn but always for original parts and that is how it has remained. Fortunately it has been stored away in a dry location for all these years and I am now going through the painstaking process of cleaning it all up and refreshing it. Other than a few chips on the frame, cleaning the chrome and new stickers there is not much needs doing. The bearings are in an (unbelievable) immaculate condition and I discovered the inner tubes are still the original ones complete with Raleigh embossed on them.

The only dilema I have now is whether to straighten the aluminium pedal cages where they were bent and then to re-anodize them along with the scratched brake levers and maybe the bars. The problem is finding somewhere that might do such a small job.

I'm now off to search for tips.

Hello everyone. This is my first time on here and from what I have seen this is a great site and just keeps getting better. I recently bought a 90s Dyno nitro that I always wanted as a kid but my parents couldnt afford it. Well now I have a kid who I just bought his first bmx bike so I bought the bike I always wanted. I raced a little BMX as a kid and ride road bikes but I forgot how fun a BMX bike is. Even at 39 it's like I'm a kid again.

Hi

I've just finished a revival of my first full size BMX. This is using an O'Brian Challenge bike along with many new parts.

This one's a keeper.

Also have a Sunday Spark (2011)
