I wonder what the French connection was or if the Huret and Mafac parts were made under licence in SA as well.

I think this bike deserves a thread all of it's own really Brett

I found that very interesting as well, it’s the first leather saddle that I’ve seen that had the “made in SA” stamp on it. I’m planning of having a chat with a very knowledgeable vintage collector in SA over the weekend and hopefully he’ll be able to provide some insight into Raleigh’s history over here. I’ll provide feedback once I’ve chatted to him.

If you’d like some more info on the build I’ll be more than willing to share it in a separate thread. The bike has already been stripped down and work has started.

Definitely, build threads in readers road bikes are always very welcome

Hi all,
Nick here from Co Antrim.
I've been browsing the site for a while but just signed up today.

Here's a list of my road bikes:
1981 Francesco Moser Modello Record (full bare metal re-spray + restoration)
1989 Peugeot Racing Team (just a frame and forks at the minute)
1993 Giant Cadex CFR-1 (just needed a tidy up)
2007 Orbea Orca (not quite vintage/retro but not quite modern either!)

And for good measure, Mountain bike - 2006 Orbea Scape and BMX - 2007 Raleigh Aero Pro Team Burner (25th anniversary edition)

I'll get some pictures up in the relevant sections soon.

Cheers!
