Just wanted to share that I finished my 1984 Raleigh Corsa. It is in a very nice condition and almost completely original. It has the full Shimano 105 "Golden Arrow" group and Reynolds 501 tubing. I only had to find the levers which I did last week, NOS! I turned around all the cog wheels, so they feel new. It will be for sale soon, as it is a 54.5 cm frame which is too small for me.

Yum I had the Gran Sport from a similar era, tasty Raleighs always get me going. Is that SIS shifters I see?

Yep, these are normal friction shifters (Shimano 105). I have to say that I almost prefer them over indexed. No fine adjustment needed and if you listen well, there is no problem adjusting them during riding.
