Just come back from collecting it. Absolute bargain at £45!!
Its getting dark and its raining so i will post some pics tomorrow.
Its just about as original as you can get!!
There is a little bit of paint bubbling and a few surface rust spots and it will need a repaint. It has pretty much everything original, and by judging by the rims i would make the assumption it is on its original brake pads too. Very very minimal brake wear to the original wheels.
Obviously at some point someone decided they didn't like the down tube shifters and changed them to SIS bar mounted thumb shifters, and the saddle has been changed along with the bar tape. Other than that though its all there!
The Original front wheel is as true as you can get but the rear one has seen some damage at some point and is a bit buckled. It might be repairable, but i think ill just replace it. Overall i am VERY pleased with it and i am looking forward to restoring it to its former glory.
Does anyone know where i can get some new graphics made along with a Reynaulds 531 sticker a vintage raleigh badge for the head tube?
