I dont know if this qualifies,its a 1988 Raleigh Merlin

it came to me with mtb handlebars (photo 2)

after a few wheel changes i decided on single speed 700c mavic

usual weinmann brakes

a couple of cans of gold paint and and a new seat

the racks only on it as im using it for work at mo

its got nothing special on it just parts bin stuff and a bit of sweat

fun to ride and get lots of looks :!: (probably thinking 'look at that t@@@')

toying with putting drop handlebars on it ,has temporary gold ones at mo

hope the photos ok i dont have a camera, just my phone
:D
