A new record for me- 2 days build including building and truing the wheels! This is for bimbling about with the missus who has the Raleigh Lenton I built a few months ago.
Frame: 531 maintubes, random NOS Raleigh (warranty replacement frame or factory sale frame maybe). Worksop serial number, so possibly a cancelled special order from some cycling Goliath!
Fork: Raleigh, made out of lead-filled girders I reckon. A pity as the frame is relatively light for its size
Headset: NOS Stronglight (normal bearings). Had to take it to a LBS to have the crown race milled as it is an unfinished frame.
Stem: Sakae, taken from an old Emmelle mountain bike
Handlebar: homemade bullbars cut myself from the drops of a Raleigh Pulsar. Chrome steel, roug, but then I didn't want to waste a decent bar on my experiment!
