AGE / VALUE:   Old Raleigh Scrambler posted by: AJ on 7/5/2004 at 2:48:05 AM
Has anybody heard of the Raleigh Scrambler from the late 70's? I just bought one but can't seem to find ANY info on the web about it????


   RE:AGE / VALUE:   Old Raleigh Scrambler posted by Neil on 10/13/2004 at 9:11:58 AM
I had one of those when I was about 9 years old (1975). It was the model down from the Chopper but was only single speed. Mine was orange and I'm sure my mother has pics of me on it somewhere.

MISC:   are the old bikes strong posted by: rama chandran on 5/31/2004 at 2:11:02 PM
i wond a old school diamond back,and i must say its the bset ride of my life,i love the way 80's bikes handle and feel.but the raddest i have ever gotten on this bike is bunnyhops as high as the to tube.my question is,i have heard many stories that during the 80's lotsa guys destyoed good frames like redlines and mongooses doing dirt jumps.,i m curious how come they break?isnt bmx bikes built to take punishment?i thought any 80;s bmx bike should be able to jump like a motocross motorcycle and survive.now i am afraid to do dirt jumps on my diamond back.any old schooler out there can give me your opnion on wheter the old bikes are just as strobng as he newer ones or should i just store this bike? thnaks..
