you posted in the wrong forum but I'm sure a mod will move it in good time.

As a newcomer to the rebuilding scene, what wheels could you put in those frames? If they were 27" when new, how easy would it be to put them on 700c wheels?

It's possible but you'll need to make sure you get brakes of a suitable length (or drop), also worth checking the rear spacing (width between the drop outs the wheel sits within) of the frame and the same on the rear wheel you're planning to use 130mm is modern standard but older bikes are usually narrower

Well I'm interested in the Raleigh I think, I just need to confirm size is suitable for me, then agree terms, I can collect.
