RALEIGH ‘RACEBRED’ PURSUIT CLASSIC VINTAGE ROAD RACING BIKE
Regretfully selling my beloved Raleigh Pursuit due to moving
I got it as a barn find from a man in Sussex, who didn’t
know what he had really. It only needed a good clean (was well greased and
protected), and has served me well for over a year of commuting and trips.
The tall frame is perfect for anyone 6 – 6.8 ft. (185-205
cm), modern bikes just don’t give you this leg stretch any more. The ride is
absolutely fabulous, just makes you want to keep going on and on. It is the
most comfortable bike I ever had (with a gel saddle though – selling with the
original one), and super speedy as well. All parts original, all working, no unwanted
noises, play, or need for replacement. There is no rust and everything is in
working order, ready for a marvellous ride.
Feel free to ask for any more photos or details.
Available for a test ride around Greenwich (cash deposit).
Collection only – happy to meet at any major London terminals (London Bridge,
Liverpool Street, Charing Cross, Euston, Victoria, Waterloo).
