Spotted this the other day and $25 later it is mine. Cool bike, but not a lot of info out there about the Raleigh freestyle bikes. It is a Tri-moly frame and the quality looks very nice. Possibly an Anlun made frame, but do not know for sure. Looking to get away from the faded yellow parts and go with some pink. I have the original wheels as well, which seem to be in prettey good shape. Any input on this model would be greatly appreciated!

I had this as my first freestyle bike-after my Norco spitfire turbo was stolen, I decided to try out a freestyle bike and the insurance paid for this-mine was grey trim and white-from my understanding were only sold to Canadian bike distributors. Very heavy bike-I swapped out many parts on it to lighten it. Don't know what it was made from though? Nice find though.
