Cool 8)
I totally forgot they ever existed
I was too little for one of those back then and had to suffice with my grifter, but oh how i longed for one of those bad-boys.
Did they do a green one?
Respekt !! :wink:

My neighbour, either Duncan or his brother Fergus can't remember which but that's not important, had a bomber when I was a kid. Seeing yours brings back some memories! I'm jealous and want one all over again now :(

Only ever did black, black/chrome or blue.
I'm building a custom one at the moment that I hope will go down well.

Wow, nice, I'd fogotten what they looked like!

I had a black one after a Grifter.

This is gonna sound like a strange question but what sort of size are they? Yeah, I know I had one but I was a lot smaller then!
How do they measure up for an adult?

I ask this after seeing a chopper recently after having not seen one for maybe 20+ years, suprised how small it was, or should that be suprised how big I was?

This is the main reason I rebuild/restore Bombers as I am 6ft tall and they fit me well.
The bomber has an 18" frame with 26" wheels

Just needs decals fitting and a bit of a tweak here and there

These versions were the last of the bombers before the Maverick was launched and the mountain bikes took over
