Welcome in mate :) What model Burner is it ?

If it's your childhood Burner and still have it , keep it . Some people would give an arm and a leg to still own theirs.

I've got mine , but find it difficult to ride with just one arm and one leg :lol:

Get some pictures up , we all love pictures 8-)

Hello ans welcome!

That's it then - being kept for your 2 year old. You have 4-5 years to slowly restore it back to it's former glory, or do it quicker and buy a mini burner to match so you can have father and child rides!

There are some how to's on here about
The seatpost.
On one of my bikes i put the seatpost in
A vice and put a heat gun thing one the seat tube
While twisting the frame back and forth.

Worked a treat

The chrome looks very good condition. You must have a nice dry shed!

I think my dad must of covered it oil or grease thats why i steam cleaned it, it was sticky stuff , it's been in the shed since about 1990 i think, I cant find many pictures of what this should look like from new, I bought it about 85 from my local bike shop so it wasnt brand new although looked new. Il put some pics up when i get it finished, is it possible to get a lay back seat post to fit a mk1 without using a shim?
