Nice Bike. It was my second bike back then. Loved to ride it. I liked the colours very much. Do you still ride the 40/16 gear? Unfortunately I sold it back then.

Re: 1983 Raleigh Night Burner

beautifully done ! , great to see the early burners being saved. they were not considered "exotic" BITD but the reality is that most of us on this side of the pond started with a burner before moving up to gt's / hutch's etc.The great thing about raleigh was the broad range of burners
,so we could all have one...even if we could'nt afford the later aero-pro (which was top of the range if you excluded the later team pro). Inky am i right in saying this was about mid-way in the range ?

Re: 1983 Raleigh Night Burner

You are right. this was mid-way in the range. The Burner started it even for me in Germany. But over here, they were a bit exotic.
