Hi all. I've finally got my hands on a mk1 pro burner frame, forks and bars. I'm now needing to source everything else which will take time. I'm hoping that someone here might be able to give me a list of correct parts that I'll need to complete the bike to the correct spec. Thanks in advance.

Yes that was me sorry. I had to jump on it at that price especially after seeing what other pro burner frames have been going for recently!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but after further investigation, it is NOT a Pro Burner.

It is a Rapier.

I did my homework before buying and knew it to be an aussey import. To be honest it's an 'R' gusset at the end of the day which I'm more than happy about. Other than the intergrated brake cable stays its identical. I can't wait to build it up and get out on it.

Coolio - there is a bit of info on here;

Most parts are fairly easy to source, with the exception of the Raleigh stamped hubs.

Nice bikes. Good luck and have fun sourcing the parts and building it, it won't be easy though! Word of advice just take your time waiting for the right parts to surface rather than rushing in buying anything. Most stuff is out there somewhere or other, you just have gone patient and keep looking, and then looking some more! Don't give up! There's some pretty difficult bits to find, the tyres and hubs you'll probably never find Raleigh stamped ones, you are better settling for some decent Suzue hubs/NTKK tyres as alternatives, but in minty condition they are difficult to find. The other HARD bits to source are the correct ogk mach grips, the nagaoka seat post, and the HKK chain. The other stuff comes up more often but even then if you want mint condition even that stuff could take a long time to get and cost an arm and a leg the way prices are nowadays.

Check for parts regular on eBay, BMX museum, rad, and the burner forums and Facebook ones if you do that. Just take your time finding the bits you're happy with and enjoy building the bike you want !

Fantastic info, thanks very much. You're absolutely right about taking my time. I'm in no rush and if it takes me a year or more then so be it. I should have the frame back from the chromers in a week and I'm just waiting for the new decals to arrive from bmx man. I've been able to get hold of some nos high flange suzue hubs in mint condition as well as a nagaoka seat post and fuan mx seat in tip top condition. On one hand I'm looking forward to getting the bike complete but on the other hand the fun is sourcing all the components.
I've got a feeling that getting the Mach grips and those Dia compe brakes are going to be the biggest challenge (and most expensive!)
