1986 Raleigh Ventura road racing touring bike with Reynolds 531 frame. Fully stripped down and refurbished, in full working order with all the original main components including the beautiful Shimano Golden Arrow drivetrain.
Frame: 22.5 inch (57cm) medium lightweight Reynolds 531 steel frame. No dents or damage but some rust patina, especially on the top tube and forks. Decals are original, with some wear and scratches.
Drivetrain: Shimano Golden Arrow throughout in absolutely pristine condition with new inner cables. Bottom bracket is smooth with no play. MKS pedals with cage and leather straps.
Components: Original Weinmann Type 500 brakes and levers. New cables and plenty of life left in the pads. Original Custom stem and Raleigh bars, with new padded bar tape. Saddle in not original, but is in great condition and of the right era. Original full length aluminium mudguards with a small dent at one of the mounting points. Stem and seat post are both free to move.
Wheels: Original Weinmann 700C alloy rims (so they will fit modern tyres) and Maillard quick release hubs, both in great condition. Brand new gum wall tyres and modern inner tubes.
Collection from Southampton, South Oxfordshire, or anywhere on the weekly commute between, or postage by bikedelivery. Please note, there will be a delay on postage because I’ll have to source the bike box from the delivery company.
Current Price: £125.00
