I recently bought a new vintage ride (got a habbit of doing that)
Its a 80s raleigh burner frame and a small handfull of bits.
Ive wanted a old skool bmx for a while so when i found it in Exeter at the right price couldnt pass it up.
Looked on a few web sites and found the burner i wanted to replicate, the Team Raleigh anniversary edition.
I had the intenson of doing it up over time, told the wife the same else i wouldnt of been allowed to get it Laughing
Well picked it up last friday, and then scowered the internet over the week for cheap bargin parts as i had a tight budget.

Got home Thursday and dived in head first and thought d see how it goes.
Well here is Evening 1's progress
1st strp it to bare metal with a wire wheel on a grinder.

Then left it to dry inside for the night to keep it a little warmer and get the paint to go real hard.
Day 2 am
In the morning had a little play with the new old skool wheels before i went to work

then masked up the frame areas i wanted blue and painted them too.
Also some of the old bits a got with the bike needed some real hard core cleaning, so as the wife wasnt home, i loaded them in to the dish washer, which worked a treat!!!!!!!!!

Day 2 pm
Came home to a couple of nice packages like decals, white chain, lay back seat post, plastic old type seat, Grips ect.
I didnt expect to be delivered already,
Thought it would be wrong not to try them on to see how it looked Wink

Went for a ride round the block with bailey on his BMX and had a good few looks and comments like i had one of them ect.

Over the weekend gotta build the brakes up and put them on as it was a little scary trying stop with just your foot on the rear wheel... Laughing

I think i might cry, as i used to have a raleigh bmx of some sort with the black plastic wheels when i was younger but dad took it to the tip because he got me a new bike, and after seeing your resto i think i want one to get me about in middlesbrough...

Hmm.. lets look at ebay...
