Hi all totally new to bmx building and wondering about any little pointers and general advise relevant to a mk1 burner . eg. irregular sized stuff or what to avoid using would be appreciated
im just getting started into building / restoring a mk1 burner (from frame) a work friend got me interested and as a young lad was only every on friends bikes . remember a friend with a blue/yellow burner and a lot of mongooses about.

Im pretty savvy with hands on work (electrician by trade ) so should get into the swing of it.
Its the different sizes of stuff that confuses me .

first impressions of the forum are great , and plenty of great bikes on here !

plenty of stuff to read when skiving at work :P

(sorry if this is classed as technical advice and in wrong area, unsure where to put it )

Welcome mate. If you need any advise just ask. Mk1 tuffs (blue/yell) are awesome and a proper icon.

Hello and welcome in ;)

All Mk1 parts are interchangeable with the Mk2, apart from the wider seatpost cna post clamp that you find on the Mk1. Mk1 layback seat posts don't come up for sale that often, so another option is to fit a shim into the frame and fit a Mk2 layback seatpost. The shims are more common, but I personally prefer the fatter look of a Mk1 layback as it keeps the flow with the fatter tube sizing.

Please get some pictures up so we can see how you get on 8-)

Welcome in mate.
Yeah a layback is a bit of must on a mk1 if your taller than a hobbit.
I had a shim in mine as a kid and a renthal layback.
