- Raleigh burner 30th anniversary
Cost £500 new, but now listed for 2-3 times that on ebay but then came across this
Edit: just noticed the seller name, obviously a mick take by the forum!Posted 8 months agojohnnystormSubscriber
I just dont get it. Presumably these are made in china and the old ones were made in the UK?
I could understand wanting an original, or even a modern one in retro colours.
Raleigh are the ones ripping off the enthusiasts charging nearly 400 quid for it in the first place. 😉Posted 8 months agosillyoldmanSubscriber
The Aero Pro was a Japanese built frame. Only the even pisher ones were made in Nottingham.
Everything about this sucks – an awful bike reissued and sold direct to punters rather than through Raleigh’s dealer base. Then to compound the situation, cynical arseholes buy them to make a quick buck from those going through their 2nd mid-life crisis.Posted 8 months ago
Why the hell would you buy it? For the same reason people buy old sports cars. As a child in that era the boutique brands were so far out of reach they weren’t worth thinking about, whereas the pro Burner was something I could drool at in my local shop, still love that colour scheme.Posted 8 months ago
