The Reynolds 531 versions of the Raleigh MTB Teams are difficult to tell apart from the gas pipe specials but are pretty nice to ride. Personally I find Raleigh nailed the geometry but spoiled that with cheap materials.

Looking good, great what a good scrub up can do :D

That A/Stars reminds me of my Al mega i used to have, it had been painted in a mustard colour, i think it was 'hot', maybe a pun/clue in the paint choice :lol:
