Great looking Raleigh.

May i suggest buying a rubber chain-stay protector to stop chainslap from ruining the paintwork on the stay :wink:

Holy thread/bike resurrection!

OP, I've have one of these and would like to powder coat it in that colour, can you remember the powder-coat code/details by any chance? Thnks. It really looks like a nice deep metallic finish. Nice job overall on your rebuild, if mine gets to look half that good it'd be a job well done!

Strange that this has come up now, I've been working on one of these in the same colour recently, for a friend of a friend who wants to try getting into cycling again.

It's in a terrible state and the components are all either cheap or knackered (apart from the campag brakes), but the frame is lovely!
