  1. The second 1984 Raleigh Magnum I purchased in 2016. This one was the rougher of the two. Original seat, seat post, seat post clamp and head stem. New decals, paint and a few other bits including some old school IRC comp 3 tyres.
  2. ok the story go's no more buying bikes or frame n forks , until this popped up , showed the mrs and the reply was go get it then , as it was pretty close to me and that doesn't happen over here in WA too often . Nice condition Pro , been re-finished and came with a set of bars and a post non Curtis items . The plan was just chrome , but iv'e been told no I want black and chrome so there it is i have my orders ............ So , yep that's a new headset been gathering dust , and yep new H stem that will get the blue stripped and polished , will use the crank as she likes the look of it but strip the blue cups and polish those as well . The bars , not keen on those so maybe Mongoose Pro's as trying to find another set of Curtis Pro's might be a bit hard . Wheels have been sorted , nice set of black rims with chrome hubs , can't wait to see those myself . That's about it for now ..............
  3. I recently purchased two of these frame sets plus a few parts. A relatively low end frame from 1984. Merida made. Not quite the quality that Mongoose were getting but a nice looking frame nonetheless. 20" top tube seems quite long for the old-school era, flat brake bridge and no guard tabs had me hooked. This one is the slightly cleaner of the two, and this one I have the before shots of. A couple of weeks of prep and paint - did a few frames at the same time - it was ready to build. I had a few parts set aside for something like this, so built up using period parts. The original seat went back on as well. I needed to re-create the decals. These Australian Raleigh Magnum's are few and far between.
  4. A rough frame fork bars and seat was all I had to start with. Pretty happy with where it ended up. Needed to recreate the decals for this one.

  6. Hi there, I picked up a gray super viper a while back and decided to build it. The sticker are pretty worn but I can see it says super viper and it kinda resembles the gray turbo Harry Leary rode because of the stickers but mine is a looptail. Anyway serial says F410XXXXX and I was wondering if this is just a super viper or gray turbo. Is the one I have rare? Any info appreciated. Thanks Mondo :icon_wave:
  7. So I decided to build up a Hutch. It is a bike that I have always wanted, since I was a child. 1984 Hutch Pro Raider Frame and Original Fork, Picked up a nice head stem and some NL pedals Original Headset, Hutch Seat Clamp, Araya 7x rims laced on Sunshine Hubs w/ Shimano Freewheel. more to come
  8. So I thought I would post up a build on my 1984 Diamond Back Turbo Lite. It has already been underway for a few months as I have been collecting up parts as I can get them. Frame and forks are in good original condition with no dents or re-welds. Once I get all of the missing parts together it will go for a respray. I am still missing Brakes: AC800MX chrome plated (Dia-Compe) Levers: Tech III (Dia-Compe) Pedals: XC-II (Suntour) and of course ..... the holy grail hubs... https://lh5.googleus...BkKUcjdrh8APw50 https://lh5.googleus...gUhO1-X1S69BpBw I was over the moon to pick up this bottom bracket complete with turbo caps https://lh3.googleus...Bg8ZDx6GxPij0T8 Won a sprocket on flee bay. Still have to find sprocket fasteners https://lh3.googleus...Os2njyI4zvL3K8A The turbo lite stem needs a bit of work https://lh5.googleus...EII0Icyc_9MMLGE https://lh4.googleus...geJPQglNdYfux04 Picked up some bars with grips today https://lh6.googleus...c8x4Cq2ucnHPV6c https://lh4.googleus...vbZ6jAkSz7ZjpF0
  9. Hi guys A couple of months back, I came across a photo of a KZ-1 restored which reminded me of my older brother's bike back in the 80's. He bought it off some kid for $50 or so back then...and yes, he still has the frame stored away to do up when he gets back from living in the UK! Re-inspired and with an interest regained in old school BMX, I started Googling and WHAM - I had no idea how huge the community is and the interest in the older (and best!) BMX bikes from back then. Just picked myself up a chrome Kuwahara Laserlite KZ-84 (or so my research tells me) and some other bits of kit from some old guy and I am massively keen to do it up. It also came with a pair of OGK Tuffs (in great condition) and shimano DX breaks. When I work out how to post some pics - i will!! Can anyone help with where to buy the pieces I'll need to make her sweet and ride again? I'm in Perth, but of course the net is also an option - any good websites and recommended sellers? I know things like Elina seats are friggin expensive (WTF is with that?) - any tips on where to get them (in blue)? I also need some cranks, chain, tyres (blue), grips (Kuwa lightening bolt in blue if possible), kuwa pads (blue), pedals (blue) kkt's. Ok, so most things in BLUE! Hope I haven't doubled up on info requests too much. Appreciate the help!! Cheers all Bombus
  10. Decided I want to fix up my old Diamond Back Viper I had it as a kid and finally decided to start looking at restoring it. I dont plan on selling it but just curios what its value might be (or if anyone sees anything of value currently on the bike). I think its mostly original parts I have both rims (ones pictured). I wanted to get photos now before I did anything to it so I would have some type of before and after. I believe its an 84 (serial number F4) Any feedback, information, tips, or how I should restore it is appreciated. Obviously it needs some cleaning up. Thanks
