A Raleigh Wildcat. It had sirens and black plastic everywhere.
I've been trying to remember. I think it was just sound effects, maybe a roar and possibly a laser sound?! Was cool as fuck like. Got nicked as well...from outside my house, whilst I went in for my tea!!
never had one. neither did my sister or brother.
me dad worked down the pit until 1963 when I was 13. we just couldnt afford it.
i had a great bogey though made with pram wheels.
Kuwahara Laserlite Teardrop frame all with upgraded parts, mostly bought from Kawasaki World - beat the shit out of the Raleigh Pro Burner.
Shame it wasn’t a tracking device! I had a Raleigh medal road bike. Rode it for miles. Loaned it to loads of mates. Eventually got nicked outside 7-11 on north end road. Miss that bike.
My blue grifter but boy they weighed a tonne
I had a blue Raleigh Boxer that I loved but my most prized was my Raleigh Super Tuff Burner with Reynolds 531 oval tubing, that thing was the nuts .
Raleigh Ultra Burner. Those were the boyos
Budgie then a bomber.
I had no choice in either of these.
Probably my Burner But I still remember the feeling when my dad rolled out a grifter for me. Upgrading from a striker.
Loved it. Me dad spray painted it too.
two things would survive a nuclear holocaust.....cockroaches and Raleigh Grifters
I had a white Raleigh Mag Burner with black skys, it was class and seemed fast as fuck, how I ironic I went on to support the lads......although I don't burn mags
Cockroaches riding grifters within 20 years.
Green Mk1 Chopper - fur on seat grab handle and twin rear view mirrors on handlebars
Gold Raleigh Super Burner
I was never that good with stunt bikes, but got a Raleigh Winner racer bike and nobody could beat me for speed:
I remember wanting a new bike for a couple of years, but my parents held back because I was growing too fast. This seemed huge when I got it, but I still out grew it. It lived in my parents garage for years, until I loaned it to a mate at Uni. He didn't lock it up and it got nicked within a few weeks.
Claud Butler racer bought it 2nd hand. I was told it was a bike that used t belong to Joe Waugh (South Shields Olympian)
A bike ? I was lucky to get food.
Did get a bike though, when i was 14-15, i got a paper round and bought some old bone shaker from an old bloke. Had it about a year. No idea what make it was.
I'm sure my father used to use it to collect overspill coal from Monkton cokeworks.
This , with back pedal brake.
Could skid for miles with one of those
