Thanks Kurt. The tires and wheels will be changed soon hopefully. I hate those tires.
Yeah Lonewolf. Same as the Raleigh ad where Toby does the powerslide. Also they both had red versions as well.

thats the exact bike I have and the same color.

CHEEZ.
Pics would help, some were worthy some were not. If this is what it looks like the answer would be not. The RA 10 made by BMX Products is the Raleigh to have IMO

If your really lucky, it is or was a silvery blue color and is a super rare and desirable Rampar R9. I loved those bikes when I first saw them with all the Dura-Ace components!!

I passed on an NOS R9 in a shop window here in Chicago back in 1988 (Puyries Bikes in either Evanston or Skokie) and have regretted it ever since!! Wish I knew which local collector got it, I would love to see it again!

Even if the bike is the mild steel version, it's worthy. Heavy, but worthy. It's what I grew up on and I became a pretty dangerous dude at the track.

Whatever you do, don't chuck it.


I agree. I logged a whole lot of hours on a r10. Thats what 1 really learned to ride on before i started racing.

After seeing this http://burnerworld.8.forumer.com/a/posts.p...4791&start= my bike may be an R9 cause it has the sunshine hub that is threaded on both sides of the araya rims

That is one of the coolest videos I've seen of old school riding. And to think someone started a thread questioning trails being BMX.

I went from a Mag scambler to the Rampar r-9 light blue with Super mighty comps and sunshine hubs with araya 7c rims. It was super light compared to the 32 lbs Schwinn.
