Project Build Threads / Raleigh Apex - Celebrity Heritage Build
« Last post by ADMIN4RO-TEIGHT on March 24, 2016, 08:29:23 am »


I bought the old junker from a Canadian chap in Surreyshire who inherited it from his next neighbour who was none other than the amazing David 'Kid' Jensen...so I was told.

Will update some pics soon of what it looks like now!

Project Build Threads / Another old Peugeot build
« Last post by ADMIN4RO-TEIGHT on November 03, 2014, 02:42:29 pm »


I have managed to get hold of another old Pug MTB this time a Montana from Circa 1988. It had the usual stuck seat post which all my Peugeot's seem to have which I sorted with some heat and a lot of spray lithium grease....









Will be stripped and powder coated in a few weeks.

I will uploads some pictures when it is done.

I bought this while I was rebuilding the Python and used it as a daily hack. It is one of the most comfortable bikes I have owned.

Everything was original on it even the tyres and it all worked well and felt really solid. Personally I think these are great bikes.

The python has now gone to a new owner, who I hope enjoys it as much as I did

The frame and forks went of to the Powder Coaters on Wednesday and my better half choose the colour  :o which can only mean two things, it is going to be bright or very bright!!!!!

I used aurora powdercoating in Ash as they have a really good reputation and have been very helpful so far..

I will post up the some more pics when I get the frame back.

After fitting the XT Shifters I decided to switch out the rear Freewheel for a 7 speed shimano one to replace the original 6. This would make use of the extra clicks from the shifters  :) at the same time I updated the original Exage Trail rear mech to a late 80's 500LX Exage unit which is a lot smoother and works well with new shifters.



Next jobs include servicing the hubs and new rear quick release axle.
