    Now struggling to change & tweak bits but would still like to change to a race tank cover if I can ever find one to fit with the sub frame etc and perhaps go back to an Akra exhaust. so I think that's it pretty much finished for this one. Blade4.jpg Blade3.jpg Blade2.jpg Blade1.jpg

    Never thought of it, think it may just draw too much attention to the ugly black box that is.... ABS. Thought of painting that red but was just going to look too chunky.

    What a surprise. We all know the Black Beast is your wife's, but you've never let on that you've down-traded to a Raleigh for yourself!! If it's any help, @PauloHRC or I can send you an HRC decal for it!! AND, I'll even lend you my new Lorenzo helmet after I get it tomorrow!:D

    Bet the Blade sounds good too; I have the same Yoshi on my 2011.

    :D Hers is the newer black beast.
    But the sound of this thing is awesome.
    This has also only done 7,000m in 5 years. o_O

    The Raleigh was my Christmas present in 1982, refurbished a few years ago.
    Occasionally take it off the wall for a wee spin.

    brings back a few memories that Raleigh Burner...….I had a Skyway TA back in the day when I was around 9 or 10, I remember one Christmas when all the kids in the area got BMX's for Christmas and there must of been around 20 kid's all tearing round the neighbourhood! great memories:):D

    Ah, of course. I knew that!

    Serves me right for trying to be a smart-arse (again:rolleyes:) without paying due attention!:(

    One more TT visit on this then perhaps it's time for a change :) Final upgrades were the fuel cap and footpegs..... still looks gleaming and it will be hard to say farewell if it happens. bikewithsunrays copy.jpg DSC_0477b copy.jpg
