Thankyou everyone for the positive comments, always makes those late nights in the garage more worthwhile :D

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)

Nice job, I've just picked one of those frames up, it's
in shotblast at the moment. I'm going to go a bit 90s on it, some cheeky neon and possibly 600. What was the threading on the BB? Is it dodgy Raleigh 26tpi or English thread?
I managed to find some 501 double butted stickers after a good scour, they're coming from Australia from a guy who reproduces them, a bit extreme I know!

Excellent news, thanks. It's a slow burner but I'll post it back up when it's done
