Just thought i would share the whole collection i once had up until beginning of 2008. Some of the bikes were updated after i took the pictures, like Maxy cross pedals on the team special and super and supertuffs - but there were no NOS available until after i took the pics, i did replace them.

Looking back, i'm proud of what i did, regret selling some of them, not all of them. I still have half the collection, and will build it back up a little, but not like before.

I'm not putting this up to show off, its just nice to see them all in one place.

oh Julian, I am new to the forum but have a lifetime love of BMX and Burners in particular, I am useless on computers, more agricultural than apple mac, but I did post on the forum looking to say a simple thanks for posting the photos, I was amazed at the collection and thrilled to see someone had done what I am sure Millions have dreamt of doing but never did.

My bikes are the anniversary models, in the day the best I could manage was a Raleigh g*****r with Acorn freestyle wheels in white ( I still have them ) but I saw your bikes and couldn't believe it, you had skyways with the alloy hub !!, so I went looking and found the anniversary 50 edition wheels and as I write two sets are winging there way to me to swap into my bikes to look more original.

Aero Zytec Wheels are in a few of your bikes also, I haven't started looking for those yet !!!! Skyway were always the dream for me, even back in the day I had to travel with my much nagged parents to Northern Ireland to get the acorn rims.

The one pity in recent years was the loss of my full BMX action bike magazine collection in a fire at my parents house, but in truth at the time I was just glad to have my parents !!!

Anyway hope this post finds you well and thanks for the photos / collection etc its EPIC.

Galway is home, Back in the day it was quiet the trip to Enniskillen, McNulties bicycle shop on the bridge, I actually bought motorbikes off Brian years and years later, but I always respected the effort he went to to get me sorted. Raleigh Burners were everywhere but to get bits as with today was near impossible.
