With it being such a nice day today I thought I'd pull my finger out and get this finished off and get some piccies taken 8-)

This has been a very long time in the making, and I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with it :lol: The main issue I had was with the decals, they are red but when I applied them the black superchrome showed through making them look a kind of rusty colour (actually not a million miles away from the original Raleigh AP decals).

Anyway its an '84 Tange frame and forks that have been re-chromed with smoked superchrome on top, its actually the same finish as Glynnyboy's RR Cruiser 8-) 8-) I've kept it fairly stock but obviously with a red colour scheme, parts list below...

'84 Tange Frame and Forks
AP bars
Dia Compe MX 900 calipers
Dia Compe Tech 3 levers (NOS :shock: )
Dia Compe cables (NOS)
Kashimax Aero (NOS)
Koizumi seatpost (Re-chromed)
Suntour seatclamp (NOS)
Araya Aeros with NOS Suntour hubs and DT Swiss spokes
Suntour stem
Tange 320 headset (Re-chromed) with NOS Tange headlock
Tange grips (NOS)
Sugino crank (Re-chromed)
Tange Bottom Bracket (Re-zinced)
Sugino spider (NOS)
Sugino 44T chainwheel (NOS)
Sugino bolts (NOS)
Sugino Custom M pedals
Tioga Comp 3 Rainbow label tyres (NOS)

I think thats about it, there are a few bits I may improve over time. The wheels, for instance, the rims aren't mint, they were used on last years Moonride on my Goose so have a bit of brake rub, but to be honest I quite like that cos it means I can ride the thing without worying about ruining the rims. Also the rear tyre might get swapped as with a lot of Tiogas there's a bit too much black and not enough skinwall.

I'd like to heartily thank JonnyB aka Buttsbikeshop for all the re-chroming, superchroming and the wheelbuild (which he did for me 2 days before the Moonride :shock: )

Less of my waffle, here she is...

or maybe red custom m's with black cables.
either way it's REALLY nice.

Feck me mate you took your time with that one, when you consider your pics sent me knocking butt's door for the paint for my raleigh cruiser two year ago :shock: :lol:
It doesn't disappoint though, what an outstanding job. Love how the decals work on it.
Absolutely lush :27: :27: :27: :27:

8-) 8-) 8-) BOOM...mark is back.....stunning mate just stunning...

It takes balls to mess around with color schemes and decal colors etc.

Gathering spec parts is a bitch also never mind color-coded parts.

The time and effort shines through in every nut and bolt......absolutely love it

Cheers lads 8-) 8-)

Jack I might try the black cables, I do have some black ones as it happens, but all the black bits I have need to be kept for my next build really :lol:

Glynn I know mate, I kinda fell out with it when I applied the decals, the pics make them look redder than they actually are on the bike, thanks for the kind words ;)

Paul thanks very much mate, very kind of you to say :oops: 8-) 8-)

'kin hell Mark, what a build :shock:

The teaser pics on instagram had me intrigued, but that is just stunning, great concept - looks even better built. That smoked chrome finish looks mean 8-)
