I'v just found one of these in my grandads shed, and thinking about doing it up for my little boy. I know Vaughan loves his choppers, so Vaughan or anyone else got any advice on where to get spares, how to clean the rust off, replacement parts / stickers, etc????

Wow, now that's a very nice find, and looks to be all there, And the seat looks in good nick and the all important chainguard. If that's missing forget it. If I were you I would do very little to it as it looks very good or just give it a very good clean. Now this is going to sound like a joke but get some silver sand from your hardware store (its so fine it cleans the chrome up without scratching) and anything else you require is available on Ebay. Good luck with it.

I put myself through University working at cycle shops and dealt extensively with Raleigh product, but have never seen this model. It wasn't offered by Raleigh Canada. It looks like a classic, but I would bet there aren't many Budgies that have survived.

The head tube and seat tube are connected by one frame tube! We used to call bikes designed like that "flexi-flyers" because the frames had a lot of give. And there was always a risk of separation where the horizintal tube connected either at he head or seat.

When you do retore that beauty be very gentle when you ride it. Very Happy
