Raleigh. I'd imagine 90% of the British members here have owned one at some point. whether its a grifter, burner or mustang. Anyhow here are some scans from an article in the 2000 xmas special of cw. These allude to happier times before the company was effectively forced to stop uk manufacturing due to some newts.

Just how good was David Baker going to be before he was forced to retire? I still marvel at the Grundig World Cup footage from Bromont, where David rides through the rocks and roots where Frischy and Djernis have to run.

BTW, Pat Adams has some Trimnell forks on a Dynatech hanging in his barn... suspect they're sparingly used... ;-)

I bought a Dynatech frame and fork with the intention of doing a 'Team Raleigh Replica' but for some reason it didn't get me excited like my other projects. :?

Sold the frame now to a lady in Spain :shock:

Ahhh, fair goes Kev.

Was the frame sprayed up in team colours? Don't particularly recall seeing them sold in the team livery...

Sally Timmis was a babe!!

Yep, I didn't see too many Team painted Dynatechs either, theoe Rex Trimmell forks were lush!

Such a shame about Dave Baker, it looked all gravy for him joining Team GT...
