    My Rebuild Project

    After completing 3000 miles on my raleigh activator, I decided to do an upgrade and rebuild it. Me and my friend decided to do the work one week after school. Originally, it was a decrepit old thing:
    (see picture)
    We stripped it down to a frame



    which was then sanded to bare metal and resprayed.



    once this was done suspension forks were added



    we then put a new cog, front and rear wheels on it



    after that rear V brakes, front disk brake, lights, wing mirror, computers etc were added



    After the rebuild the bike was a dream to ride and is smooth and comfortable with excellent gear changes.
    I have already started to achieve my next 3000 miles
