Cool,

Thanks for that Dave, very enjoyable reading.

I've just started a Raleigh build, so of good interest to me.

Thanks again.

aye, gorgeous! we used to sell these in the 80s - a couple of us in the shop owned raleigh panasonic 753 bikes - i had one with super record and my colleague one identical to yours. i was a diehard campag fan and he was a brown noser who sold shimano stuff 'cos the big boss made a bigger profit on it! mind you, if i'm honest the shimano gears did work whereas the campag ones were a complete health hazard!!! :shock:

rusty :D

I was just thinking and i remember we sold the services des courses 753R frame and forks for £495 around 1986 or so with the complete bike going for around £1500 rrp. What do you have your bike insured for or if you were selling it what would your asking price be? just being totally nosey that's all!! LOL

rusty :D

Hi Rusty, I've no idea what it's true worth is as I believe that value is subjective, I'm happy with what I paid for it as it's what I wanted. I'd like to think that if I was to sell it I'd get around £5-600?

Cheers :D

yup, your bike is a beauty and well worth every penny.

i'm currently looking for a nice retro road bike for my girlfriend so please let me know if you ever decide to sell as this is just what the directeur sportif ordered!!

best regards,
rusty :)
