Hi folks,

Just introduced myself on the MTB forum due to my 1993 Kona Lava Dome but thought I would say hello here too based on my even older 1983 original Ultra Burner that I received for my 11th birthday.
I had some great fun on this bike during the eighties both racing and freestyle tricks but then drifted away in my high school years before moving onto MTB in the early nineties.
I still own the bike and it is still all original. Parts were replaced when worn but always for original parts and that is how it has remained. Fortunately it has been stored away in a dry location for all these years and I am now going through the painstaking process of cleaning it all up and refreshing it. Other than a few chips on the frame, cleaning the chrome and new stickers there is not much needs doing. The bearings are in an (unbelievable) immaculate condition and I discovered the inner tubes are still the original ones complete with Raleigh embossed on them.

The only dilema I have now is whether to straighten the aluminium pedal cages where they were bent and then to re-anodize them along with the scratched brake levers and maybe the bars. The problem is finding somewhere that might do such a small job.

I'm now off to search for tips.
