16.5" 1991 Raleigh Dune Dancer Reynolds 501 Steel frame and forks - mint condition with only 2 marks of worth. This really is a lovely lugged frame back from when Raleigh were good. The colour is wonderful and a couple of the decals were starting to look a little tired so I carefully removed them all. I have polished the frame and forks to death and it looks fantastic. I think it looks sweet with just the Reynolds 501 sticker on there.

Only the frame/forks/headset and BB are original, the rest of the parts are NEW, either NOS or kit that I think suited the build.

it's only done about 5 miles, but its just a tad to small for me, otherwise I would be keeping it! It's a head turner and looks great and I have recieved nice comments about it, on it's maiden voyage!

Here's the spec:

Yes it's a beauty, took me a while to get it how I wanted, but truthfully will suit someone 5' 9"-5' 10" perfectly. Got a new frame for SS duties so need to sell this to purchase new wheels :(

Gutted, as it's a lovely frame, and it rides so nice, my back just wont take it....
