Go on, do it!

I would talk to Tim at T White's bikes in Auckland, he might already have the decals /transfers you need. There is a strong bmx retro community out there if you go looking

Is it an hmx?

Nah its a Supersport 202, my brother had the HMX 500. He's right into the whole vintage BMX scene (lives in Melbourne) so will hit him up and see if he has any likely contacts for decals as well.

Somewhat related, but I saw that Raleigh recently did a limited re-run of the burner that sold out in hours. A good few going to speculators :satan:

Yup, its tidy for its age, i'm stoked with it, looks to have had an easy life.

The 32s the seller had I have bought as well, they need a service badly, but I hope they will come up nice on my blackmarket

I saw it a few minutes after listing appeared, and was straight on the direct message to buy it.

Yeah... I don't think I'd feel safe on a dropper that skinny anyway.

Maybe if that built in thing Liteville have goes mainstream. I could drill a hole for a fixing bolt and fit one with a 25mm stanchion.

Yup
Build quality isn't the best but does the job.

After having to drill out a seized chainring bolt and a trip to the shop to get new ones, she's done:

Nothing too outrageous:
XT drivetrain bar SLX mech.
SLX brakes on Icetech rotors.
Sektor U-Turn coil (so plush).
Stans Arch on Pro IIs.
Couldn't run the Aggressor I bought for it as it was too wide.
Will still need to re-dish the rear wheel too.

Once I get a properly sized dropper post for the Privee, my 27.2" Lev will be handed over too.

Be good to go riding with my bro on his own bike again :)

Looks mint!

I do need to track down a decent 120/130mm travel fork for mine. 100mm fork wasn't that nice to ride, and the 160mm fork i've got at the moment makes it way too chopper spec, and the bb way too high
