1978 Team Rampar

1978 Team Rampar

(Mongoose version Rampar)
My Favorite company which is BMXproducts and their joint effort with Raleigh to build them a Team bike.

Updated pictures: 15 Feb 2013.
Here is a hook up from a fellow Club member, who got in contact with me asking if I'd be interested or not.
The Rampar is "as is" as shown in the 1st, 2nd an 3rd pics.
The 4th pic is with a '79 Team Rampar in nickle, it's brother smile

I'm continuing to piece this Team Rampar back together with original parts (Mongoose/Rampar) or parts it may have had back in it's race days (if raced ?).
This Rampar is similar to the R11XL but has a sticker "R" on the side plate, instead of the stamped out "R".
The rear of the frame is also different than other Raleigh's, where this one is identical to the mongoose frames and not the Raleigh's of the period.
Side by side this frame is identical to my Jag, Blue max, Moto trac and also my Mongooses.
But has the little slots on both sides of the front gusset plates for the brake cable routing.
It also has 2 cable guides brazed onto the bottom side of the top tube.

Please let me know of any other info concerning Rampar's, Team Rampar's or specific history on this Rampar.
Thanks Johnny G.

Re: 1978 Team Rampar

I received your message and will give you as much information as I can. The bmx products rampars were made in 79 the same year raleigh started their factory team. The frames came in three colors nickel, red and blue. You are right they are identical to the jags except for the cable brazons and slot in gusset. Raleigh made a set of chrome forks that were chromoly that bottema and henderson originally used on the bmx product frames. LOOK IN BMX ACTION around 79 and see the forks on their bikes. Later bottema developed his own forks which he prototyped on the bmx products frame. Raleigh of england made aprotype frame around 80. henderson raced it for a short period of time but cracked it. They only made 3 of these frames. They were orange with raleigh graphics modeled after their road bikes. A bout a year ago the one bottema owned was for sale on ebay fopr 2000 dollars.
