Whilst building up my Stumpjumper collection over the last year, i picked up a couple of Vintage Specialized Carbon Road Bikes - an Allez Comp and an Epic Comp after working on these decided to look for the 3 old Raleigh's I had back in the day the Sirocco, Road Ace & Quadra.

Here's the third my new Raleigh Quadra project picked up this week from its original owner! Its a 1988 with Reynolds 531 tubing finished in white with multi colour fade and mostly Shimano 105 components. Wheels are the original Weinman Aero rims and original to the bike. Front mech is wrong as its Campag but the Red Turbo saddle is a nice addition!

Plan is full strip down and rebuild with a few new parts but period correct except more modern tyres etc.

Here's a few pics prior to first wash and strip down...
