# Bikes you don't own anymore but still love #
« on: January 07, 2018, 08:29 PM »
Hey radsters  :)

I'm a repeater when as far as looking through our Me&My bikes board is concerned. From time to time I've noticed though, some members had tidied up their threads because some bikes aren't a part of their collection anymore.
Those of you who know me, also know I only own bike ever since. So I can't really give this thread a propper start myself, but I know from looking through said board over and over again, that many of you have owned some cracking bikes.

So please post some pics of your bikes you don't own anymore but still love. Put a little description to them if you like, a short spec list, or just tell us a little bit of your personal history you had with them. This is only meant to bring back some good memories, and maybe it will also bring some bikes to our attention that probalby never made it to this awesome forum.

:bow: in advance  :daumenhoch:

Only sold one bike. It was built with a load of old crap from o.t cycles because I didn't have a lot of money and it rode like a bag of shit, but, I love the look of them.

Iíve let a few go over the years the one I miss most is this.

Phase 2 Pro. It missed the Raleigh branded seat & hubs but was a fine example of one of these. Needs were a must and the sale funded one of my National Proís so I canít grumble but I wouldnít mind having it back.
Nowadays though my plans for most of the bikes I own are, at some point Iím going to ride them. I wouldnít have ridden the pro though.
I donít know if he regrets it yet but that black CW nick sold recently was a cracker that might hurt at some point.

If I could have, I would have kept most of them but at the end of the day, they're just metal, rubber and plastic, cash has done more use in the bank than these bikes have sat on stands gathering dust.

Oh and this one,I regretted selling as soon as I sold it,but needed money at the time.

End of the day I regard these bikes as luxury items and money in the bank is more important.

Stupid thing is I'm much more well off now than I have been at times in the past,but will probably never own bikes like these again as prices are too high and I'm a tight git !!

Great start lads!  :4_17_5: Thanks a lot for your replies. Keep 'em coming.  :daumenhoch:

Dan, I would still slap myself until this day for letting the '85 Performer on Z's go. This and the Dyno (have such a soft spot for that colour  :smitten: )
Although I fully understand your point.  ;)

I raffled the GT, got a grand, paid for a new boiler with the proceeds, Iain Williams won it, Iain gave it to Jane his sister, Jane came on rides, so did her Mum, Jane met Geoff on a ride and they got married at MK.

All's good.

Jepp, sometimes needs must (is the saying?). It was just my way of expressing how amazing they look. Good to know if they go to good new home, which seems defo to be the case in this case  :daumenhoch:

I wish I still had all the bikes I built, I loved every one of them but unfortunately life gets in the way and I don't have the finances to hold on to them. I am thankful I still have my PR (for now..)
I previously built...
 
Pro- Lite Craig Campbell rider rep
Redline RL-20 Pro Styler
Haro sport Ron Wilkerson rep

all of them were stunners but I miss the CC the most... ::)

Easy one for me Andy, my fully loaded ProClass. Never got to ride it as it was a bit of a show pony and not long after I finished it I was in court for speeding again and had a hefty fine to pay, so off it went :'(

I'd have kept the custom "Mini-Class" I built (behind the ProCess in the pic) as whell because my daughter is now riding a 20" BMX so it would have been great.... but I'd probably have done my nut every time she chucked it on the floor like she does with her current bike :2funny:

Few  here I no longer own and would have back in a heartbeat. The Ď85 GT came up for sale last week and must say I was tempted, would love to have 100% finished it, but needed cash at the time.

Not that far off from my old D.P. also bought from O.T.'s as a frameset. Gave it to my cousin who eventually took a mallet to it on Mitcham Common with his mates, and set fire to anything flammable.

The ONLY bike I ever regret selling is the Ripper.

I've sold off quite a few of my Beats now but it's not really bothered me to be honest. I still have 3 Beats left but I can see another going soon.

I remember that CW very well. It was up for sale on here for ages - a bargain right away and then it went for so little money. A shame really, was a killer bike.  :(
