Hi all. Here's my raleigh yukon.
I have no idea on the age of the bike, so if anyone can at least hint to its age, that would be great.
Anyone know any history on them?
Also, i need a new bb for it. I would like a sealed, square taper but i dont know what size i'd need, if anyone knows?
Im chuffed with the bike. I love the retro colour scheme and it'll fit in well with my other British bikes.
Thanks

(I have a newer pic but cant upload due to size, but the yukon now has black and red pannaracer tyres, and its alot cleaner)

Brilliant thanks. I haven't a clue how to date raleigh ATBs or MTBs by serial number?
But 91/2 is good for me :-)

If the shifter levers are a rounded finish, 92-93, they are quite squared off, 1990-91 but I seem to remember these being for the 1992 model year

Wheels were originally black Alesa rims

BB probably just needs a clean and regrease but if you manage to get it out you'll need a 68x122 or a 68x125mm bb

Thanks fpr that legrandefromage.
Ill take a look at the shifter levers to see.
I wonder if I'd ever be able to source some original wheels for it...
The bb was the old type- spindle and cups. I tried and tried to regrease and reinstall but i think the cups needed new bearings. If i can, i'd like to replace with sealed bb.

I think the frame is reynolds something or other.
Seems like a nice solid frame anyway
