Selling on behalf of my son with the following description:
Totally original & unmolested, Mk 1 Raleigh Grifter that has been in the shed for over 30 years. All I have done is given it a basic clean. Could be improved with a little work - rub down on both mudguards and handlebars (rust in places) and a coating of satin black would really improve it. I just don't have the time to do this. All totally original to every last part - nuts, super grip tyres, cables, saddle, etc.
Please bear in mind that the bike is 34 years old so it is not a show bike but a very usable bike with potential for improvement.
Original tyres hold air but are perished and may need replacing. The frame is straight with no dents but has rust spots. Both wheel rims are pitted (particularly the front) but both are usable. Pitting is evident on other chrome parts and the saddle is split in places but usable. Foam on handlebars is very good - not split or picked at.
The bike has not been tarted up to look good - just cleaned. Nostalgic bomb-proof Raleigh 'old school'. If it helps frame number is NP8402332 and the rear hub is stamped 78 10.
Winning bidder to collect. Sorry no couriers / posting. Payment by Pay Pal or cash on collection.
