Hi all . I have just became the owner of a Raleigh Medale with a seriously big frame approx 26 inches from the bottom of the bottom bracket to the seatpost cup . Im not really a racer enthusiast and to be honest i probably dont have the skill to refurbish this bike . Im more into bmx's new or old . I basically wanted to offer it up on here . So if anyone is interested make me an offer . Its in barnfind condition missing 1 pedal and the seat . Apert from that it seems to have all the appropriate parts . Tyres are worn , chain is rusty . possibly needs a new derailer .
Im sure you can imagine the rest .

All offers will be considered .

And yes, post some photos.

PS A Raleigh Medale in a rather fetching bronze was my first proper bike in about 1980!

Thanks for getting the pic up for me . every time i tried it just rejected . No time hasn't been kind at all . I just had to rescue it more out of curiosity because its one of the biggest frames i have ever seen and i just hated the thought of it being destroyed . I just dont think i can personally do it justice . Bmx's new and old i can do all day long with my eyes shut . this is a completely different ball game . I just love the old thumb levers on the frame just reminds me of my first ever racer .
