1985 Raleigh Cromo Burner

Postby JonnyRoberts76 » 19 May 2015, 19:03

Hi Guys,
I thought I would share pictures of my project last year.
As a kid I had a Raleigh Team Burner Andy Ruffel - I had it for about a month before it got stolen.. I was gutted...
I always wanted an Aero Pro Burner... But parents couldn't afford it...
So... Later in life I have decided to build one from scratch.. I went for it... Koisumi frame, tange top and bottome brackets, 85 dated cables and calipers, original Mushroom grips, the list goes on..all NOS and went with blue and chrome... It wasn't cheap... But I love it..

I have had 4/5 laps round a BMX track to give it some soul... And now is back, cleaned up, and hanging in my cave.
I am interested in your thoughts in it... You like ?
I would consider selling it for the right money...

Thanks
Jonny
