Item specifics

Used: An item that has been previously used. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully ... Read moreabout the condition
Frame Size: 60cm
Number of Gears: 18 Brand: Raleigh
Type: Road Racing Bike
1970s Elswick road racing bike finished in metallic green/aqua
It measures 22.5" from centre of the bottom bracket to the centre of the top tube and 22" top tube centre to centre
Reynolds 531 tubing - detailed steel lugs
Very light bike for age
Weinmann brake calipers
Mafac drilled brake levers
Cinelli extra long stem
Campagnolo Record seat post
Campagnolo brake cable guides
Brooks leather saddle
Shimano Altus gears
Royal SR cranks
Gipiemme Sprint Italian pedals
Mavic tubular rims with shimano hubs & stainless spokes
Overall the bike is ok for it's age - there are scratches and rust on the frame but the components are good quality and worth a lot more if stripped
To make it rideable It does require a few things including new tub tyres, One spoke requires replacing on the front wheel and may need the odd one tightening
Also noticed the gears are a bit noisy around the rear derailleur so would suggest at least a good service and set up before hitting the road
If all of this was done then it would make a great quality rideable classic!!
You are welcome to collect from Crewe or we will post via parcel force
The bike will be partly dismantled and packed in a bike box
Don't forget this is an old bike so has scratches/wear as you would expect but still very presentable
It is priced realistically however if there is no interest then I will probably split it. The seat and post are worth £120!!
