A nice old school BMX made by Morrison NZ
This one is the earlier model to the Super X, the frames were the same but the forks and components differed

I've generally found them on the old school Morrison 10 and 12 speeds bikes, even the super maxy cranks can be found on some....
They used these parts in nz on alot of different bikes and bmx's, great finds in good nick
I found the latest raleigh seatpost in the back of an old shop last week when travelling on holiday along with other coloured parts,
gotta ask in old established shops, they generally have old stock out the back hidden away, stoked with the finds!

Some more updated pics,
I don't like the pedals so have ideas to change them and replace the stem with an original
as shown in the last pic, Will polish the bottom part of the stem and paint the top parts
yellow to match, also the cages on the pedals will be colour matched yellow

Since have added some polished Tourney BMX brake calipers, cheap grips, original Morrsion bars with poilshed dia-compe levers,
blue Sugino chainring on super maxy polished cranks, old raleigh 22.2Ø braced seatpost
