first would like to say hi and hope someone could answer a few noob questions... Only for my own knowledge not so I can make a quick buck on the devil bay etc
I was given this frame today by a elderly neighbor, it belonged to his son who has long since moved abroad and he thought I would have some use for it as he knows I cycle tour and MTB plus I restore old brit motorcycles from time to time for people..
The amount I know about old road bikes you could put on the back of a ants stamp but im quite interested in starting cycle restoration and have been thinking about it for a bit now..
The frame looks like a Raleigh TI with serial number NP2011391 I can not say what the material is as the sticker on the seat tube is unreadable
Thinking I have a few options with it if its not a Raleigh drain pipe frame, option one rebuild with period parts and fully restore the frame or convert to a nice Fixed gear as I have a few Phil wood hubs and rims in a box in the workshop, Also are repro decals availiable???
Thank you inadvance for any information you can help bring to light
P.S was also given a bag with a Suntour V Luxe rear mech and shifters that came off this frame.. Pics to follow
