Thought that title may help some looksies at my Raleigh Even More Extreme :D

I bought this at a car boot sale for £12!, its never seen much action, there's only the odd storage mark on it. If the wheels and chainguard are lined up correctly it reads Extreme. I will take this bike to bits over winter, thoroughly clean and re-lube everything :P

I always loved how they put those clip on 'discs' on the front wheel as well as the rear. Don't let your boy ride it in a crosswind! :shock:
My mate had one of those when we were kids, we were all jealous. :lol:
