yup mate :wink: it's the team styler from 87'

there were three done in team colour's

the team areo pro ( a tange made frame )

the Andy Ruffell team burner ( standard Mk2 Raleigh burner frame )

and the Raleigh team styler ( styler is the follow on model after the burner range - this was Raleigh's attempt at keeping themselves alive in the bmx game and a chance to use up parts left in the stock cupboard - the was the renegade from Raleigh which was either a Mk1 or Mk2 frame with what ever bits they could find to use up )

the bike you have there looks clean - the aeroyal seat is sort after if in good shape - SR stem - Raleigh mags are good (but don't do any big jumps or you might regret it :shock: ) white tange grips - reflectors are missing and the tyre's would have been black with white walls - watch that chain and maybe get some chain Mk2 chain tensioners as the have a habit of jumping of and high siding you (been there, got the scars :cry: )

cheers B :wink:

The item is in France. Before the item ended he gave me a rough quote on postage which he said he would conifrm should I win. I did 8)

Requested an invoice and emailed a few times. Nowt so far, just hope he's taking his sweet time sorting out post. If not nevermind, no cash sent...

Hopefully post will be ok, quoted 40 euros which one of the French chaps on here thought was about right.

Nice one on the pics and scan - waiting for my Burner catalogue CD as we speak.

No huge plans for it. Kind of looks ok in the pics, hoping a good clean, bit of touch up, set of pads and perhaps a back brake will bring it up.

Then maybe I'll take it up the local BMX track for a spin. It'll have to be in term time though, my skillz are sh*t :lol:
