1978 Rampar R10

Raleigh Rampar R-10

This is a Rampar r-10 I used to own. It is 100% stock in the photos. Ashtabula bars. Double clamp neck. Sugino 1pc. cranks (if I remember right). Rat trap pedals. Tuff 1s with a bendix coaster brake. We used to call them fake redlines because of the frame gusset being just like the redline, and they were alot cheaper, and ALOT heavier. You were pretty lame if you had one of these BITD, but now I was happy to own it smile - Saylor Garland, TX

Re: 1978 Rampar R10

Re: 1978 Rampar R10

right on -
it should be stock as you see it.

I got it for $4.00 at a g-sale here in Richardson TX. The bike came from Peddler Bicycles in Richardson (the old school kick ass bike shop here). I sold the tuffs back in like 2001 for like $120.00, and sold the frame / fork / etc just a couple of months ago on the bay.

It was $4 well spent smile

LOL I just saw in the corner of my room I kept that back tire.

That is a bad dog there.

Re: 1978 Rampar R10

Ha I just sold 4 sets of those decals ont he bay today! Wow!


I get this question often so here it is to save everyone time. I do not have any Mongoose DMC decals left. I was lucky enough to find a small bunch of NOS decal sets in an old bike shop that no longer exists and I have since sold them all. Sorry. I wish you all the best of luck with your DMC builds.

Re: 1978 Rampar R10

I had one BITD and I was not lame at all. Black with red tuff 1's w/ free wheel kit , red snake bellys , v bars , tange forks, full set red pads. Folks couldnt afford redline's and mongoose's. She was heavy but I was a very happy 12 yr old to have it. I guess thats why I collect and restore bikes today. Check out my collection. Will have to dig up some old photos of the RAMPAR.


IT WAS BACK IN THE SUMMER OF 83 THERE'S A REASON I REMEMBER IT WELL!!!!  A FREHLEY.

Re: 1978 Rampar R10

I agree, I've owned many bikes over the years including my original 83 Gen 1 HARO, but I started on a Red Rampar R-10 with red tuff 1's that looked almost exactly like yours.  I'll probably put up some pics of the bike when I get a chance.

Re: 1978 Rampar R10

Hi,
I think your bike might be a R9 - Chrome Moly Job!
Check out
http://www.jaysmarine.com/TH_Raleigh_Cat_78_25.html
The R10 Catalogue is at
http://www.jaysmarine.com/TH_Raleigh_Cat_78_24.html

Note that the forks on the R10 are way different and the R10 only came in carbon steel - not chrome moly.  The r9 was a chrome moly frame.
thanks,
madisonman
