This can be identified by the loop tail frame and gusset with two holes in it.
This first version (1982-1983) was originally available in three variants:
The basic model was available with either a blue or red frame. It had conventional wire-spoked wheels, matt black front forks, yellow saddle and frame pads, and gold coloured brake calipers and levers. Typical UK retail price of the basic model in 1982 was £120.
During this period, the next model up was the ‘Tuff Burner’. As per the basic model, the Tuff Burner was available with either red or blue frames, and accompanied by matt black forks, yellow saddle and frame pads, and gold coloured brake levers and calipers, the Tuff Burner was distinguished from the basic model by its yellow, five-spoke ‘Mag’ (plastic) wheels. Typical UK retail price of the red or blue ‘Tuff Burner’ in 1982 was £130.
The top of the line model in the years 1982-83 was the ‘Super Burner’, which was distinguished by its apparently gold paintwork (In actual fact, the bike’s frame was chrome plated and then covered with a transparent, gold tinted film). It had black frame pads with gold coloured script. In the years 1982-83 the Mark 1 Super Burner was available only with conventional wire-spoked wheels that had gold-painted rims, although a variant with five-spoke mag wheels (in black) became available for the 1984 model year. This later ‘Mag’ version of the Super Burner was known as the ‘Super Tuff Burner’. The typical UK retail price of a Super Burner in 1982 was £140.
