Hi guys!
I thought I would share this with you all, a 1990/91 Raleigh even more extreme. I wanted one of these bitd but I was a couple of years too old to pull it off. Luckily I have a very pleased 5 year old to excuse my purchase! Great bit of time warp nostalgia all for 36 squid!

And my dyna tech encounter which has been on the back burner far too long but will hopefully get her to original spec by the end of summer if we ever get one!

We used to have one of those Dynatechs in the shop which I worked in. I used to thrash it all over the Quantocks and it always came back for more :D

I'm not sure how much abuse it could take now, I've seen a few come unbonded over the years. This one has held on pretty well but Ive retired it now and want to put it back to original spec. I am on the hunt for another that I want to use (requested in wanted section :wink:) ideally after a Diablo but the encounter is still pretty light.
