I thought people might be interested in an old touring bike I acquired recently. It is a British Eagle Randonee built in Newtown Wales and originally purchased from Allin Cycles of Croydon in 1989 for £395.

Frame Reynolds 531
Forks Reynolds 501
Wheels Rigida 700C rims Maillard Hub
Front gear Suntour GX
Rear gear Suntour XCM Accushift 3040
Saddle Brooks B17
Handlebars Ubri
Brakes Shimano Brat 50

Looks very nice, a good solid traditional look to it.

Stronglight LX 80 or LX 100 cranks? THey are nice, you can simply bolt on a 3rd ring if you want to change it to a triple.

Hello fellow Randonnee owner.
Yours is much more original than mine which can be seen here:

Which I've since fitted with drop bars and mudguards. I'll post pics soon.
So nice to see another one.
Regards
Phil
