    Post  Wim on Thu Aug 20, 2009 9:40 am

    Hi guys,
    I'm Wim from Belgium, I'm 16, and i just bought my Raleigh Chopper MK2 a week ago,
    it was verry rusty and now i'm cleaning it Smile
    i have allmost the whole bike stripped, except the sissy bars Sad
    the sissy bars are really rusted in and i have problems with getting them out of the frame, maybe some tips?
    Greetings from Belgium Very Happy

    ok, i will try it Very Happy
    i just searched it up and my bike is from februari 1980.
    its a black one with golden gearshifter.
    the only thing i'm sad about is that i dont have the typical 'R'nuts Crying or Very sad

    i cant see it if it is a black prismatic Crying or Very sad
    but he's from 1980 and he has a golden shifting thing,
    so i think thats the evidence that he is a black prismatic Very Happy
    the sissybars wont come out so i have to leave them on it Sad
    i will clean them good and then cover them good if i repaint the frame,
    i have to scour evrything with sandpaper because i cant sandblast it with that sissy bars on it =/

    The bike will fill hard to ride with out the sissy bar moveing it don`t fill nice to ride

    I have an puprle one witch is stuck and my black one fill like an Rollels Royce comepare to the puprle one


    Only way now is to get someone to sit on the chopper and get an planck of wood an smake it with an hammer with the planck on wood

    i tried evrything Wink
    i hung my frame at the ceiling and i hung on the bars while my dad hit it with a hammer,
    i tried evrything, 3 days, 7 times a day, i sprayed antirustspray on it.
    nothing helped.
    but i will cover it good when i respray the frame,
    and i dont worry about it that my seat is too low,
    i love it low :d
    like a real lowrider xD
