Original reflectors as well? Looks super minty. Loving the wishbone.

This is bringing back memories... my first MTB was a Raleigh USA Technium with nearly the same specs. The only difference where the 3 main tubes, which where silver instead of blue. I think it was also an Obsession.

It looks great!
Though you shouldn't ride it!
My Experience with the Obsession (next model year) was this:
After half a year I had replaced the BB for a Campy. The Saddle for a Brooks. The Brakes for SS7 with 986ers. And the Shifters with XT Thumbies. Shortly after, the Mech was Exchanged for a DX Unit.
In the following years the BB was Changed for Mavic With Crank. Finally The Headset with a needle bearing one. Front wheel got a blue Tune Mig with Mavic rim. All these changes where because of OEM Component failure... (or poor performance)
Ahh and Scott AT4 :oops: that I'm not so proud of...

All in all the frame held up nicely even under a clydesdale class rider. :wink:

I have one too! $10 at the thrift store. I use it every day - commute from work to the post office and back. It rides nice on the bumpy roads.

I am the original owner of this 1990 raleigh technium Obsession and looking to find it a good home at a fair price. Not as good shape as lowe1677 but decent. The handle bars are modified (not original). I will post pictures. It is a silver gray.

The Op's bike looks just like mine, although mine has a few more touches. I love it, wish I had a another!
