I came across a group of 40yr + lads in mumbles
Riding around on immaculately restored raleigh burners and skyway bmx's plus other 80s BMX's.had a good chat to them.
Great to see the bikes we had as kids.looking brand new.
There was a whiff of green about them.
I recon they were living the teenage dream lol.

Flaming Raleigh grifter always failed pulling a wheelie thanks to the gear change.
I been eyeing up a old Scott mtb at a charity warehouse it was there last week ,an been there 2 weeks,
Some of these old mtbs are becoming really sought after
But this one is a keeper.
I've already got a specialized hard rock non suspension and a 80s Barry hoban Gents bike in the shed,that one I've fitted 700c wheels to,but have the original 27 1/4 ones as well.
