back in 1989 (i think) my dad bought me my first MTB, it was a pink/yellow Giant stonebreaker, it was 12 speed i think, with suntour thumbies and everything absolutely loved it, but when i had outgrown it i 'upgraded' to a raleigh activator and the giant went to the tip.....

i now want to get another in the same colour scheme to add to my ever expanding collection! ideally an 18" frame?

I know these wont b easy to come by but you never know...

Yep got it back! After a fair few months.

Story is

Advertised it for sale
Man and daughter came to view
Man and daughter and policeman came to view
Said I stole it!
I didn't have proof that I didn't
They took it away
Can't really remember how I got it back.

ha ha your eyes do not deceive u!!!!

Im not looking for one for its riding capability, only for a(nother) trip down memory lane! it weighed a ton and was known for its stone- crushing abilities!

the raleigh activator it was replaced by weighed more tho..... :D
