What the Zinn turned into, a 1999 Raleigh RSP300. Since seeing one on here lusted after one. Whats not to like a handmade reynolds 853 frame made in England. Just the name that keeps prices low which i dont mind :) Has a lot of ugly parts that will be swapped out over time. Any way some piccys.

Note the ugly cranks, and whats best described as a comedy brake caliper.

I've just won a similar frame (blue main frame,red back end) on t'bay, picking it up later but may take my time as I've got a few more projects on the go.
Remember reading the test of the freeride version in mbi and wanting one BAAAAD. :D

Very underated frame, what other 853 tubed full sus frames are out there? Especially for the kind of price you can pick these up for. This ones gonna be staying for a while unless i can get a 16" framed one, so its going too be slowly upgraded to a better level of kit.
