This is the bike I had when I was 15... I previously restored and sold a pink/mauve Technium a couple of years ago but I've been on the lookout for a white Heat and found one earlier this year on eBay, £45ish I think.

Finally finished spraying it so put it together at the weekend. Specs as follows:

Frame: Raleigh Technium Heat 1990
Forks: Spinner (I think)
Headset: Tioga Avenger NOS
Stem: No-name with nice brass roller
Bars: Tru-temper (unfortunately cut down too much - on the lookout for some wider ones)
Shifters: XT 7spd push-push (early gen STI)
Grips: nice soft rubber ones, italian?
Seatpost: Kalloy 4130
Saddle: Brooks gel (this took a bit of finding; it was what was originally fitted to Techniums)
Crank: Sugino Mity 900 with Biopace rings
Pedals: DX SPDs
BB: can't remember, Shimano MO50?
Wheels: Parallax hubs, not sure about rims?
XT F&R mechs
Deore LX cantis (polished), Aztec blocks
Spesh Crossroads amberwalls
