Looks like that front brake has never been connected judging by the rim!

Rims look to be clinchers perhaps Mavic 192e (?) FM2 frame?

Looks lovely Ian. How does it fit?

Tel, thanks for the reply.

Not riden yet just raised the saddle and lowered bars.

Frame is FM1 whatever that means? Light bike though.

Will go for a spin tomorrow, I'll have to change the pedals to spd-sl though

Close but no cigar for me then.

Personally I like the RX100 groupset, aesthetically I think it really hits the mark. The FM1 frames had a few deriatives all were good and Dura-Ace would not be out of place hung from it, the Koga Miyata FullPro had this set up (FM1 + DA).

You done very well there Ian I can't wait for you to ride it :D

Thanks Tel, you can still have a cigar mate.

Which is better then? Raleigh 531c race or FM1 Koga? the Koga is in better condition but a few years newer.

I will sell one, but which?

Are they worth about the same?

Sell the Raleigh and spend some money on Dura for the Koga?

Will I sleep tonight?

More pictures.

Tel, the tyres are tubulars and need replacing.

I'm going for spin this morning, the pedals are compatable with my spd-sl cleats!

Only a rear brake but don't use the front much anyway!

Cool 8) Fits well then eh?

I'd check to be sure that they're tubs before you buy replacements....

Yes they are tubs Tel. Original from the factory by the looks of it.
