I had one of these beauties, in green..
Always wanted one of these though:
was a team burner I think.. mid 80's
There's a picture somewhere of my dad riding it. It's quite a funny picture.
Complete with mags, CW handlebars, mushroom grips and front and back pegs for bunny/cherry hopping. great, great days.
then one of these
then one of these
Mine had SpokeyDokeys in the wheels too.
The photo isn't of my bike though, as the plastic mudguard flap got melted off as I used to press it against the tyre so that it turned into a motorbike.
It was basically a Burner with a different name http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p80/Re-buy-cycle/bmx/BHGaryFisherTensorrenegade015.jpg
I still have mine, and occassionally ride it. We'd be hard parted.
basically it was similar but red and had a box on the front which did wolf sound effects. Google tells me it was something called a wildcat, or something similar. It was so cool
looked like http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/raleigh/26901
was pretty chuffed with the look of the red anodised bits
on which I would ride off after laughing at people
fucking loved that bike...
Weighed a fucking tonne, could barely jump up a curb on it
Then a Boxer http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/raleigh/19412
Raleigh Burner when things got 'rad', with white Skyway Tuff wheels dude. Like this, but better http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_nzRBoYmJ1Ec/TVI24WQQKjI/AAAAAAAAAe4/IfU9zBtM1-Y/s1600/burner.jpg
And the Grifter too. Great, great days
Then sprayed it black, badly, in my Dads garage after a family tiff. As in "that'll teach them" but ending up with a crap looking bike instead.
don't remember before that. no bmx's
It got stolen when I was 12, might try and buy another actually
but I had this beaut from secondary school:
kept it til after I graduated; sadly it got stolen
aged about 8
came with a fucking computer built in!
I still kind of do actually
so much so that i'm considering buying myself another one (i'm not as that would be fucking weird but still...)

Had a tomahawk as well but the little wheel at the front was a fucker for getting stuck in holes and throwing you over the handlebars.
Like every other hip & trendy 70s kid.
Whose motorcycle is this?
It's a chopper, baby
I was walking along with my ma once, and walked past the house which is full of idiotic trampy irritating children, and saw that my childhood bike was sitting in their front garden.
At which point she saw my face starts laughing & says she didn't want to tell me she'd given it away as I wouldn't let her and it was taking up too much room. Pffffft.
