  1. A part restored 1982 Apollo MK2 Spitfire. I tried to keep as many of the original parts as possible.
  2. Abandoned project. Great old vintage bike to start working on. The only damage I could see what a small flake/chip on the neck (see photo), other than some extremely light scuffing. Prefer pickup from Brisbane. I found this write-up on the Burner series: Raleigh were a little slow to enter the BMX market and didn't get a range of bikes together until around 1982. The original line-up consisted of five bikes:The Raleigh Burner was the bog standard model and sold by the shed load. It had a steel frame and forks, steel rims and cranks and - I think - alloy V-handlebars.The next model - the Tuff Burner - was a little more expensive and featured yellow Skyway Tuff II mag wheels, but other wise the two bikes were identical.Next up was the SuperBurner - essentially a Burner but with a kind of gold chrome finish on the frame. It looked pretty trick but if memory serves the spec was about the same as the standard Burner.By the time you get to the Ultra Burner however, things move up a gear. Araya 7X rims, Suntour loose bearing hubs, Sugino one-piece chro-moly cranks and spyder with alloy chainring and Suntour power handlebar stem were pretty trick for a bike bought in Halfords. The frame was the same steel frame as the Burner (but with a different finish) but the forks were chrome Tange TX1200W items, though (I think) still made from steel and not chro-moly. Alloy V handlebars and budget, but genuine, dia-compe brakes complete the Ultra Burner.This was my first bike and retailed in Halfords for £130. Mine however came from the Earls Court motorcycle show 'Bike '82' in which Ammaco had built a wooden BMX track and were running demos throughout the exhibition. A dealer at the show was offering Ultra Burners for £117. The £13 saving represented quite a few weeks of my paper round so it was worth it. And I'll never forget my overwhelming joy as I wheeled my new bike out of Earls Court - still flat packed and wrapped in cardboard - having worked and waited for two years to finally afford my own BMX bike!Top of the range was the Pro Burner. Similar spec to the Ultra Burner but with a full Chro-moly frame and forks with 'race proven' geometry. I think it retailed for around £225 and as such I didn't see too many of these around.The Raleigh Burner range went on to become one of the best known brands in BMX at the absolute street level. Parents knew and trusted Raleigh's name and reputation and the 1985 UK race team line up of Andy Ruffell, Craig Schofield, Martin Jose and Stu Diggins gave Raleigh real credibility on the race circuit.Raleigh was to the UK what Huffy was to the USA. Lest we forget the importance of the humble Burner
  3. I brought this from the UK over 10 years ago (paid more than $200 back then), but after collecting a few cool accessories, the project was eventually abandoned. The bike was repainted by the guy I brought it off, so unsure of the original colour. The only damage I could see was a small flake/chip on the neck (see photo), other than that some extremely light scuffing from being blanketed in storage. Pickup from Auchenflower or buyer to organise transport. _MG_5041.CR2 _MG_5044.CR2 _MG_5045.CR2 _MG_5048.CR2 _MG_5050.CR2 _MG_5052.CR2 _MG_5054.CR2 _MG_5055.CR2 _MG_5060.CR2
  4. 1982 Quicksilver 24

    100% Survivor Quicksilver cruiser from 1982. At some point in it's life the tyres, seat and chainring were changed.
  5. Now that BMXPO 2016 is well behind me and showing this bird in its original state is done - it's time to get to restoring it to how I'd like it and as promised to the previous owner. Here's how it originally looked the day I picked it up. Not a lot changed for BMXPO. Added Cycle Pro Snake Bellies, Kashi Seat and OGK Grips. Last night I stripped down ready for cleaning. I'll save what I can, re-use where possible and re-finish if needed.
  6. Picked this up today. Made in Japan.Very happy with my first Kuwahara. Massive 22 1/4 inch TT, which is perfect as I'm a little taller than most. Everything is in easy restorable condition and I have a bunch of parts I can use.
