What happens when you cross a Raleigh Burner with KITT. The Vektar.

If Dr Who rode a bicycle.... :)


Actually, that would be ideal for riding to work on, even has integrated mudguards, I can just imagine my workmates faces if I rolled up to work one morning on a Vektar :lol:

'Ultra rare' I expect every Raleigh dealer in the country has a couple of these tarted up BSOs boxed up in the
basement that they couldn't sell in the 80s.

I'm assuming that when the BMX bubble burst (well the cheap end of the market) Raleigh were
left with a stack of unsold Burners and to shift them they added some plastic add ons.

I don't remember these at all which indicates none of my mates had one, which indicates it wasn't cool then - least of all now! What did the "computer" do out of interest?
