Dating from the early 1990’s a 1990’s Raleigh Eclipse racing bike with a Reynolds 501 lugged steel frame, Weinmann brakes, and 6×2 Shimano SIS groupset. A really cool, retro Racing Bike
In excellent original condition, the bike has been completely dismantled and recommissioned, inner cables, tyres and inner tubes, headset and bottom bracket have all been replaced. The large-size 25″ frame is good quality and well built in light but strong Reynolds 501 lugged steel tubing and finished in its original white Pearl Metallic Paint and still looks great! The frame and forks have been deep cleaned and polished but not repainted. They are completely original so have all the marks and patina you would expect from a 30 year old bike (my preference is to leave the frameset original where possible) The finished bike looks well preserved rather than over restored.
The bike is nice and original and well specced with 700C Alesa Black Alloy Rims with Black Alloy QR Hubs, Black Custom Alloy Quill Stem, Raleigh Etched Alloy handlebars, Original Pearl Bar Tape, Very Nice Black Alloy Weinmann Brake Calipers & Levers, 12 speed Index Gears with Shimano M531 Front & Rear Mech, & Shimano Index Shifters, Sakae SA Alloy Double Crankset (powder coated Pearl White), Black Alloy Chainrings, Original Black Alloy Platform Pedals with new toeclips and straps.
The bike would suit a taller rider – 6’ plus
