This gem has stayed in my garage for too long and has to go... It's been rarely used and in dry storage throughout it's life- I've just finished cleaning it up and it's looking great. The details are as follows:
Late 70s/Early 80s Raleigh Arena Racer-Racing-Touring Bike
~23" Frame (Measured approximately)
-5 speed Raleigh Gears
-Michelin World Tour tyres (good tread) 32-597 / 26x1 1/4"
-Weinmann Brakes - Front: Type 730; Rear: Type 810 (Brake blocks barely worn)
-Weinmann Dia Compe Brake Levers
-Original Brooks B18 Saddle!
-Sturmey Archer Hubs and Pedals with orange reflectors (probably Chainring & Guard too)
-Possibly Easton cranks ('E' stamp shown);if not, Sturmey Archer
Raleigh Frame Number: NN0014496
-Scuff marks on top rear of saddle (ask for photo...)
-Decals/Stickers torn in places
-Frame has some small scratches and chips in the paintwork
-Chrome showing some cracking on rims, particularly on the front
To the best of my knowledge this bike is 100% ORIGINAL- it's a great looking (and running) racer or runabout that with care and maintenance will last another 30 years.
See attached photos... I can send further photos if interested- any questons, just get in touch.
I'm looking for £55
