1987 Raleigh Shock

Survivor build with a few custom additions

I got this as a survivor frameset and wanted to build it i had my bikes as a kid. Swoped out part,s randomly placed stickers, mismatched colours, honest wear and tear!
I didnt have the original shock chainwheel so decided to make a custom one covered in a picture disc. Being of an age where music and girls would have been more and more prevelant in out lives, it seemed a good idea and a 7 inch record trimmed down fits quite well on a larger chainwheel!!
Took two years to find tyres as bold as some of mine were bitd and got lucky spotting some leaning on a wall in a back of another members resto thread. they were about to be thrown out!!
Picked up a kellogs reflector ( which were everywhere when i was a kid ) all helping to create the look i wanted

It rides great and i managed to crack the seat trying a few moves. I figure a plate underneath and a few "haro" rivets will suffice and add to the survivor look :)
