80s Grifter Bike T-shirts

If you had a BMX or a 'Grifter' as a kid back in the 1980s, you'd know that they were the only choice when it came to bikes.

You 80s kids will remember the sounds of the Raleigh Wildcat - not only would this thing scare the **** out of unaware pedestrians but it wasn't too bad on the rough stuff also. I remember a kid next door to me had one back in 1988 - I wouldn't have minded one, I had a red BMX but I haven't got any photos to make a T-shirt - if I did, I would.

The Wildcat was a cool bike and seems like a little gem to own an old one today. Here are a couple of tribute T-shirts...

Perhaps you remember the Raleigh Vektar? That bike was like a stealth bomber in black - more gizmos than the Wildcat and it even had a radio! We haven't forgotten about this one, so watch this space for a T-shirt soon.


When you eventually grew out of pretending to be Knight Rider as a kid then the Raleigh Burner was the bike to step up to. There are many pictures of these online where folks have kept them in beautiful condition and look irresistable for a ride. This is the Burner in our favourite colour scheme.
