:D hi guys,im generally on the mtb side but ive aquired a road bike to 'tinker with' during cold wintry days.its been in storage for years and is in great condition for the out of my league here so i need your help here with identity/age/value etc.i dont intend to use the bike but i dont want to spend too much time on it if its no better than scrap with a bad reputation for road worthyness etc.
for my eyes its nineties,12 speed,a carrera celeste with a mixture of shimano and cheng-star bits,sugino crank,and all original i expect although the seat has raleigh written on.
a pic has been put here but some more close-ups will be in my album shortly.-marc two tone-.
thanks in advance

marc.retro mtb. :)

Loving those colours!

Welcome to the world of speed, glad you came in from the cold.

I can't tell you much about your bike but I shouldn't imagine it's worth much, but that's not really the point. Give it a service, get it set up for you and enjoy it as it is. If you fall in love with the road (and you bloody should) you'll buy something else rather more exotic anyway so I'd leave that one as it is.
