So i got this very nice raleigh light weight 8806 frame in the post today ive been after one for ages as ive nearly finished my gt rave just need a front brake caliper with a bigger drop than 49mm and thats sorted i think this new frame needs to go down the shimano 105 group set route what do you chaps think.

So i got back off me honeymoon and i had a big pile of bits waiting for me
as this was a frame set from 1987 ive set myself the task of collecting bits to go on it from 3 years ether side of 87 so 85 to 90 as it came with a shimano 105 headset ive tried to stick to that except the bars and stem which are cinelli and yes i know the wheels are modern mach 1s with shimano hubs.
