I have an old 1978 or 79 rampar I think from my childhood, I got it from my older cousin's husband in 1988 and was wondering if it was considered a BMX bike or not and I will get the numbers off of it soon and is there anybody out there that can find out exactly what it is?

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

LOL it is. Toby Henderson and Jeff Bottema raced for Rampar. They made everything from low end mild steel bikes to full 4130.

I love the Rampar suspension bikes. Never got to ride one as a kid but they always looked so cool in the ads or stores.



I enjoy this Rampar as an occasional rider. It's quite the wheelie machine.

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.

This is really nice. I guess Toby and Jeff would have been on these.
