1981 Raleigh Red Baron

Here is an old pic of my 80-81 Raleigh Red Baron with after market rear brake and handle bar plate. BMX was such a big part of my youth, first with the Moto-Bike then the BMX : ).  This thing had alot of air and land miles, I rode it to bone.. I have not seen one on this site before so I figured I would share with all of you. Even though I am in my early 40s I still enjoy doing wheelies, jumping(small ones that is) and riding in trails, might as well do it while I still can LOL. Hope you all enjoy!

Re: 1981 Raleigh Red Baron

Thanks man! I was real proud of this one when I bought it back in the day, really stood out with those yellow tires and all : ) I have been out of BMX for so long and to be honest I have not really looked at anything new in BMX in years but I do appreciate what it did for our youths and how they kept us all in shape and entertained with friends.......great frickin memories, i wished i would have taken more pics of my bikes and gathering with friends, especially all the jumping we did : )

Thanks for posting "The Red Baron'. It was my first BMX back in the day. Exactly as your picture shows. Even though it wasn't the kuwahara I dreamed of owning me and that bike racked up some miles and had some great memories. I remember getting that bike on xmas morning, i was 8! And it was snowing and I thought that bike could go anywhere.

No problem, you just do not see these bikes, I also wanted a Kuwahara but settled for this one, I was a happy boy : )
