very, very nice. 8)

Thanks for posting this on here. We don't get to see enough quality BMX restos on retrobike IMHO, and this one is certainly quality. :wink:

Hmm contact a museum i guess and let them no what you have/have done.

I preferred the other wheels on it.

Why are the brake levers where they are?

I prefer the spoked wheels too but these have a coaster tab brake so I don't have to wreck the rare dia compe NOS pads! Lol

I'm not to sure why they are down there! But they work really well! Quite comfy and you can get a good pull on them.

Thanks for all your great comments.[/quote]

Stunning, sort of missed out first time around as I was too old :oops: but remember the whole Raleigh range, my brother worked there, well he lasted a week (raleigh robots!!) then a mate in the 80s had one of their early mountain bikes out the workshop from him....


great photos, lovely detail, credit to you mate :wink:

Hey Tony, thanks buddy

As a kid I used to love it when my Mum drove past the raleigh factory. "Rich that's where your bike (night burner) was made" she used to say.

hey sick pics
I have a ride like this in oz. the beast has been under my house since i was 10. The frame is not red but chrome with blue ano neck rims and seat clamp. The rebuild is about to start and im in the hunt for a crank, cog, pedals and hubs. any help would be awesome. I have a cousin in the UK and mates in the states. where is the best place to find the goodness. I will post pics.
this will be my first rebuild and not my last. i also have some cool aussie made frames in the shed.
I have been thinking of maybe some red and yellow with the pedals and levers but not sure.
any ideas?
