I got this bike on a whim. An advert on the local buy and sell site. Old Road bike, a bargain £20.

Still nice to ride, has all new cables, new pad and inner tubes. The original Raleigh ones were shot. Photos to be added.

Some major TLC needed to bring that to life again :)

I had a Carlton Grand Prix of similar vintage, and in the same condition.

After new tyres and an oily rag restoration it still rode nicely. It was HUGE so I sold it on, although I really wish I hadn't as it was a charming old thing.
