You end up with a Raleigh Record Sprint!

New tape, cables and blocks and we're off. Wheels were a tip find from a few years ago.

1988 at its budget roadie best:

my local tip wont let you take anything if it has already been deposited so you have to catch the tipper before they let go of it.

I can actually ride this as pictured. I thought it was going to be way too big. May explain back ache for riding too small a frame all these years.

Anyhoo its off to ebay for this one as I need to fund my habit somehow.
