Thankyou everyone for the positive comments, always makes those late nights in the garage more worthwhile
I had the same bike when I was about 15 and got cautioned for speeding on it (true story)!
That's turned out nice The bike is a bit after my time but are the forks original ?
Yes. The forks are original. The Raleigh brochure picture shows another generation Criterium with Sachs gears and a more traditional fork crown. My bike came with Shimano gears and the sloping crown forks. The second photo shows my bike pretty much 100% as it was purchased (except for brake levers & cranks)
