    What bicycles have you had over the years?

    Who had a Raleigh Street Wolf?

    It had a box and a thumb button that made cool noises n stuff. There was also a Wild Cat version.

    Google tells me it it was a 1987 model, which rightly puts me at 4 years old.

    Check the awesomeness:

    1968 - 1980, a true icon. It's a wonder they haven't started making limited editions again for the fanboys.

    P.K. Ripper was my first racing BMX when I was a kid. I have no pics of it, so this is not my pic but it looked like this...

    Still got the same hard on for Bsnub you had as NPT? Give it a rest this is about bicycles if you have a look.

    Not a brand I'm familiar with. I was rocking a Specialized Fatboy Hemi MX like this one:

    Are you okay BB? You mentioned your spelling before. Motorcycle like noise yes, back when I was 10 to 14 or so. On my Schwinn Sting Ray.

    I was always jealous of kids with Raleigh Choppers

    or their poorer cousin the Raleigh Grifter

    Ref BMX, it always looked odd to me with tiny bikes and big teens/young adults dwarfing then, looked they'd out grown them

    Damned if I can find a picture, but I had a 3-speed red Raleigh bike for Christmas in the mid 60's and kept it for years. It was the best Chrsitmas present of my childhood.

    Those choppers came out later and were for the little kids, no way you'd get a girl ride on the crossbar of one of those in my day...

    The bike I have now is only the third bike I've owned, it's still quite young, next year is its tenth birthday.

    They had very comfy saddles, the gear lever was on the cross bar so you'd have to slip your hand between said girls legs to get it into second


    They were a blood nightmare stability wise and the centre of gravity was somewhere over the back wheel and you'd flip the thing easily.

    Put some miles in on my Raleigh Grifter back in the day.

    Gangs of us, all out the house all day cycling everywhere.

    Started cycling again 10 years ago when a mate gave me his old mountain bike, best present anyone has ever given me as it got me back into it.

    I never had a "new" bike, we used to build them from bits and pieces, paint strip them and respray from a can. Got the money to buy second hand bikes by hunting golf balls in the water traps at the local golf club.

    My first bike had training wheels. I rode it for years after the trainers were off. I can still remember the terrible racket it made.
