Somehow I find it hard to believe one would sell a gold plated bike with a 105 groupset. Maybe a gold look?

Heard about one of these that was in a LBS window for years, never ridden; that had the 105 groupset too, I assume they came as standard.

A company as big and illustrious as Raleigh, making their centenary frame and gold-plating it... to then hang 105 on it? Bonkers.

Same with the new Ti special edition, built up with low end stuff. Real shame. And it still costs a frikkin fortune!
