That would be a Raleigh Quadra from 1989.

That is a nice find Mark. Love the colour, proper Raleigh team colours. Those wheels look fresh too.

Nice bike, classic '80's paint job. Looks to be in top class condition and hardly used.

Use and enjoy!

Turns out I might be a closet roadie Ned :shock: . Enjoyed riding this lovely Raleigh this evening. Managed to get an idea of what size i'm after in a road bike and picked up a good few riding tips from the King Cutter.
