1985 MRD Badlander
Rare British Freestyler
I've owned this bike from new and it's my pride and joy. They ride so well and will take any amount of abuse from flatland to ramp to dirt. Back in the day loads of my mates rode these but now they seem to be very thin on the ground. This particular one was in a sorry state until I bought a new school bike a year ago and decided to treat the old girl to a long overdue makeover! She's had a ground up rebuild with as many parts as I could refurbished and all the cheap or tacky parts I'd added over the years, replaced with nicer, more suited parts.
This bike is such an important part of my bmx life, she's staying with me forever!
Hope you like her....
