Dear friends of the bikes, they have the soul and the spirit of the 90's,
Here with I'll show you my daily used bike.
In 1995, Raleigh was changing the dropouts of the full titanium frames. Most of the old frame which was not sold came to germany were the ZEG assembled these now black powder coated frames with the full Shimano XTR 900 group set and sold this as a Raleigh USA Design Titanium XTR. The frame numbers was starting with different numbers:
T: this was the frames which was sold as Raleigh USA Tomac signature model without the rear brake train counter holder.
D: this was the 1994 Torus frames including a brake train counter holder.
Here you can see one with the framenumber starting with T, this is my every day used bike. In this case, I was changing the cantis to V-brakes, for having more of the brake power.
Best regards from mainhatten
