Can any of the resident Raleigh experts help me out in this thread, particularly with regards to the DynaTech frames in Team colours? Were they a regular production item, or were the Team colours available upon requests, as for carltondynatech? And what was the situation with DynaTech road frames at the time - readily available as Team replicas, or only by special order?

Many thanks,
Gareth.

Does anyone know how much the Torus cost new?


Same price as an Explosif - look at the difference in price now.

Long time lurker here. Finally plucked up the courage to post - hope you enjoy the following...

Most components are Shimano XT or X-Lite.

See here for history on how the bike got to be like this.

Plenty of X-Lite going on here...bars, barends, stems, fork, QR :-)

Wow. That's a lovely looking bike there Angry_Pirate.
Good to see plenty of x-lite on a Dyna Tech. They certainly go well together.
