I have just been given this 80's road bike. I have no idea what it is.
im looking to strip it down and spray it up but don't want to go ruining it if its worth anything.

the head badge appears to be ctc, and the only frame sticker is 'road speed 10' on the top tube.
any help appreciated,

thanks

looks a bit earlier than 80's...... small mudguards, GT brake levers, chain guard, big alloy spacer between the frewheel and the wheel.................Raleigh stable I'd guess. Quick pic of the lugs, seat cluster and frame number would help :)

Don't think you will be ruining anything special......

if it hasn't got any original stickers or anything Iguess it's halfway there anyway! I'm some nice shiny hubs, can you point me in the right direction? 36h 5sp
