    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!!

    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.

    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)
     
  19. 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.

    Could skid for miles with one of those
