Originally launched in 1983, the Chrome Aero Pro Burner is coming back in 2018 for its 35th anniversary.
Its classic deep chrome frameset with black finishing components still look as great today as they did when it was originally released, we’ve even managed to replicate the translucent dark copper decals.
Every effort has been made to recreate this iconic bike with the components still available today and some replicas have been created so the bike can be as similar as possible.
Made by Tange, just like the originals, the frame also features the same geometry as on 80’s bike, each tube has been replicated as closely as possible, from the aero/round seat tube, to the tapered oval chain stays, even the size of the cut out holes in the dropouts match. Only the thickness of the dropouts has increased, because safety standards have changed a bit in the past 35 years.
For the first time in 35 years, we’re fitting a Tange MX-125 headset again to a Burner and it’s now even better thanks to using sealed cartridge bearings.
The original wheels were built using Araya Aero rims & Suntour sealed bearing hubs, neither have been available for many years, so we reproduced them.
Using a polished extruded Aero rim sections, which are laced with polished spokes to sealed bearing hubs. The hubs are CNC machined to mimic the original Suntour hub shape; we’ve also reproduced the Sealed bearing decal famously used on the hub shell for authenticity.
The original & the best, Comp3 skin wall tyres are still used, just like they were in 83’.
An Aero Pro Burner wouldn’t be complete without a Kashimax Aero saddle, still made in Japan, the saddle also carries the Raleigh logo like the originals.
The original bike didn’t come with a padset as standard, but we feel if it did it would have been Black/silver to match the rest of the bike – so we added it as a bonus!
