1983 Raleigh R6000

My first real BMX. Rebuilt to 10 year old me fantasy standards.

Purchased new in June 1984. Promptly stuck my fingers in the chain and sprocket and went to the hospital. Learned tables, won some races. 25 years later, only the frame and seat clamp remained. Smoke was long gone so I re-smoked the frame, located a proper aero fork and top tube pad (another frame included!), and rebuilt to cruise to the coffee shop. A few incorrect bits that I hope to change out eventually but it's fun to hop some curbs on for now!
