    I found details on the ol' Interweb - It was called the Raleigh Vektar. A BMX with a computer running down the middle. I remember the more expensive ones had radio's and they looked pretty cool in black.



    Never owned one. As a kid I alway wanted to get hold of one and remove that center console to put on my Mountain bike

    I went through a period of collecting old games consoles a few years back. For financial reasons I've got rid of them all now. But I did have a semi-interesting collection that included...

    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amstrad_GX4000]Amstrad GX4000 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]
    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G7000]Magnavox Odyssey˛ - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]
    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairchild_Channel_F]Fairchild Channel F - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    and one of these

    Can't see the pic Matt, is it similar to this?



    I used to play this with an old school mate. We used to shot around corners by aiming at the other player through a mirror

    Wow, i loved the Amstrad CPC!

    Originally had the CPC 464 with green screen, then a CPC6128 with colour monitor and the GX4000 Games Console.
    Purchased the Amstrad TV Modulator to turn the colour monitor into a TV, a 3.5" 720K FDD and a Multiface-2 freezer cartridge.

    Looked forward every month to Amstrad Action, manually typing in 1 or 2 full pages of code
    Also remember a coupler modem (connect phone handset to it) being advertised in the magazine by [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prestel"]Prestel[/ame] and trying to convince my parents to purchase it.
    I remember contributing to a Fanzine Magazine called A-OK, i did the games cheat section...god that's a blast from the past.....

    I can see this thread getting very full (of pictures) so you might as well all lock the door, take the phone of the hook and head over here

    Amstrad Action was an ace magazine... I typed in the code too, learnt alot about programming from my CPC6128. I used to be really into Text Adventures - AA had a section on them, initially done by someone called "The Pilgrim". You could add your name and address for people to write to you when stuck on particular games (how the world was pre-email / web eh?). I got loads of letters about certain games, from all over the world.

    Bizarrely, quite recently I got a letter at my parents from someone who was trying an old game out and had dug around for assistance.

    I vaguely remember A-OK. If you did the cheats there, I probably used them.

    Fab times.

    And there was the 'Balrog' who helped us out with text based adventure games. And the fantastic 'this program does everything in only 10 lines of code' section.

    For most of it's life AA was a very well written and enjoyable mag. At one time I had almost every issue stashed away along with the quality covertapes
