Ive been hankering after an original Burner for a while. Spotted this one and thought it'd be worth the trip. 28 year old bikes don't usually fare too well.
Its in amazing 'survivor' condition. The frame has only a couple of marks that I'll touch in rather than paint or P/C. Like that patina originality.
So a real barn find, it must have been stored somewhere dry, result. It came up really well. The bars are needing some TLC where the brake levers have been slipping about.
The tyres are really badly perished so I'll need new ones, shame. A light resto and it'll be mustard. I'm thinking a layback post, Black Aeroyal saddle, new Decals bars restored, oh and some Odi mushrooms!
Putting aside the fact that they are tiny horribly impractical wee things and the braking performance being laughable/downright frightening. I'm going to enjoy this particular trip down nostalgia avenue.
I don't remember them being so bad in the 80's?
Resisting the urge to get a period number plate for it:)
My drinking club has a cycling problem.
