1987 Peregrine Expert

1987 Peregrine Expert

Peregrine Expert based on the 1987 Magazine Advert

Had this restored a couple of years now, this is the second Peregrine Expert I've owned.
Restored from a pretty messy Expert I sourced from the US, got it re-powdercoated in a candy blue rather than the original plain blue (which I though was a lifeless colour) and whist that was being done I worked on reproducing the decals. The rest of the parts are more or less as they were in the old 1987 Peregrine advertisement, some of the parts were difficult to find at the time (especially the brakes and grips) and are either NOS or restored. This bike won me the Best Mid School Bike in Show trophy at the UK's 2008 RADBMX MK event.

Re: 1987 Peregrine Expert

Great looking bike. I don't remember ever seeing any of these around where I grew up back in the day. I remember seeing them in the ads in the mags. Always thought they were cool. Nice job on the build.

Re: 1987 Peregrine Expert

Nice! What are the specs on these bikes? I see these bikes that I only saw in ads and
instantly go into flashbacks. I dig the Sport-ish top tube.
