Beautiful vintage Raleigh 10 speed road/racing bike – condition is “Seller refurbished”. Steel frame – no obvious rust, original paint in fantastic condition. This is a c 1985 bike from what I can tell. It was well preserved and all original but had not been used for a long time. I stripped, cleaned and rebuilt it. The brightwork and frame have been hand polished and come up really well. The new saddle and bar tape really give the bike a nice vintage look. Modern tyres and upgraded brake blocks give good performance. New cable inners but I retained the vintage outers as I felt these suit the bike. I’ve ridden the bike a few times and had some great comments on the look of it. If you have never used a non-indexed gear shift before, you will be amazed how smooth and easy it is to use. Sadly, I bought it to rescue / restore and wouldn’t ride it enough to justify keeping it myself. It deserves to be used regularly. Frame size is large. I’m 6’2” and the bike is set up for me so you can see the seat can come down quite a lot. I’ve spent quite a lot of time and money on the build. The bike is ready to ride and should give many years good service. The bike is around 35 years old so is not perfect but is very good condition for its age.I’d prefer local collection but I may be able to deliver it locally at cost. I’m not looking to package and post the bike. Thanks for looking.
