New to the retro bike scene - although at my age and the length of time I have been cycling I shouldn't be
Thought I would share some images of my titanium raleigh SP which is circa 1999. I have owned this bike from new and it has seen service in the US and the UK. Last weekend it narrowly avoided theft!. It is actually now my wifes bike and we were away at llandegla last weekend. My bike and my sons (two Cubes) were locked up with this Raleigh and we woke in the morning to find the Cubes were gone but they had left the raleigh. I "borrowed it" from the wife for the day and hammered it down some black runs at llandegla - ouch my aching !!"$£
Anyhow - as it narrowly avoided being pinched and no doubt painted pink and sold for a fiver down the local pub, I thought I would have a search around for similar bikes - cant find anything about this to be honest so thought I would share images and specs for you guys to see if there was any pointers to history etc.
Bike is almost totally original. The only change has been the tyres and the back brake caliper and lever.
