I have a full 105 Golden arrow groupset without the brake callipers ( which I am on the hunt for)

I know these came on a few Raleigh models. What other original frames could I look at to add these to and restore a beautiful vintage machine?

Thanks

105 Golden Arrow groupo from 1983 - 1986...So there's a time window for original frame manufacturers. Just have to decide weather you want to go French, British, Italian...Cinelli, De Rosa, Bianchi, Colnago, Masi, Pinarello, Gitane, Lapierre, Peugeot, Vitus, Condor, Mercian, Holdsworth, Hetchins, Harry Quinn...then pick a model...we could be here a while :) Though I do believe it's a bit of a faux pas in velo L'Eroica terms, to slap Japanese bits on an Italian frame (or anyother frame for that matter) :) I'd do it just to see the look on their faces...I've a preference for Reynolds 531 Competition tubing myself. A good Google image search for classic and vintage light weights brings up some real pretty looking machines...and some not so pretty price tags. Threw in a few links that might be of interest.

Thanks! This is all good info. Id like to go more accurate than the years and actually stick it on a frame that had it. The current front runner is the Raleigh Team Corsa 12

Maybe a Japanese lightweight: Panasonic, Fuji, Miyata, Bridgestone?

TANGE made some good frames during the mid 80's.
