C&V...BMX - help - (Raleigh content)
I couldn't resist buying this little guy off ebay back in November. I cleaned it up when it got here (frame was covered in Arizona sand), but haven't done much to get it rideable. I need to raise the seat a bit and the rear needs a new tube, but my main troubles are with the coaster brake, which I'll get to below.
I believe it is a 1976(?) Raleigh Rampar R10. It weighs 10 pounds more than my road bike.
I've actually been thinking about selling it, but every time I look at it again I change my mind. I'd be great to get it to the point where I can ride it to & from work, home, and my studio (all short commutes.)
Here are some pictures:
