Post subject:  Raleigh Burner Mk1 Red / Blk

I thought I'd start a build thread for this as it usually motivates me to get the build finished quicker!

The piccy below is the reason why. My parents bought me one of these about 25 years ago. Yep, that's a young me :oops:

So for the build I want the finished bike to look as close as possible to this (except maybe not the yellow water bottle cage!)

And here's the bike I bought on Ebay to do up >>>

That takes me back a bit, as does the Capri :)

:lol: The Capri isn't mine, it's the Ebay sellers. My Dad had a brown V reg Cortina estate!

The grips, saddle and pads look so familiar, I'd completely forgotten I'd owned a Raleigh BMX when I was young!
