I've really enjoyed trawling through the rest of the threads so thought I'd post some pics of my own steelframe.

The Frameset is a 1984 Raleigh Corsa bought new by myself. Handbuilt from double butted Reynolds 501 throughout and finished in Oyster. The Blue paint was added after heat was required to remove the old seat pin a couple of decades ago. :oops:

Image

Components are as follows:

Mavic SSC
Front mech, Rear mech, shift levers.
Hubs, Bottom Bracket, Headset.
[Still as smooth as the day they came from the box]

Image

Shimano
Brake Calipers, Chainset: 105 Golden Arrow (original parts)
Pedals and rear cassette: 600
Brake Levers: 500EX Exage

Misc
Campag aero seatpin with rolls saddle
Mavic rims with DB stainless spokes
Tommasini leather toe straps
Cinelli cork bar tape

Update: now cannibalised and in line for an update. :)

Both lovely bikes, one owners too :wink:
Raleigh really did produce some cracking bikes in this period (and a bit earlier).
