Raleigh Granada Bicycle - 1985
Reynolds 531 Butted Tubing, Centre pull brakes, Ten Speed, Side stand, rack, one owner, low mileage.I bought this bike new in 1985. At the time it was the best I could afford at around £250.00.
I had a few extras fitted: a mileometer, sidestand and dual pull brake levers.
Due to moving house several times I stopped using it. Now I'm much older I feel it would be of much more use to an enthusiast.
The total mileage is 302.4 all with one owner, me!
Over the last 28 years its always been stored in a garage, nevertheless it does show some signs of rust. Though there can't be much wear!
It's handmade from Reynolds 531 tubing, I've changed the saddle for a softer one and fitted a cycle computer (needs battery). I expect the cables need changing due to their age. One of the tyres has been renewed about 8 years ago. Unfortunately, the front mudguard is missing. The plastic rear mudguard is original. Hopefully somebody will appreciate this bike and give it the attention it deserves.
It's impractical to send it by courier, so buyer collects or I am willing to meet in parts of Devon/Cornwall.
Please note this bike does need a service, its not ready to ride, it really needs a buyer who knows what they are buying.
Feel free to ask any questions
