I'm on a mission to reduce my bike/frame collection a little this year so this is on the chopping block...

One raleigh special products frame and original spinner triple butted fork. Measurements are 18" centre to top of seat tube with 21.5" top tube. This was minus decals when I bought it but research had led me to find that this is a Proline model, it has an e-type front mech mount but only takes v-brakes so it's late nineties at a guess (If anybody can clarify then feel free..).

It's a lovely riding frame with very neat welds and has a nice stealthy matt finish - I've been using it as a rather posh commuter as pictured in 1x8 guise and it's silly light as built. It's also in good condition bar the odd scuff or so but being Ti these aren't too bad/noticeable. The worst one is at the top of the down tube which I noticed this morning and alomst seems like a very (extremely) shallow dent to me but again it's nothing serious. You can see this in one of the pictures (the one with a closeup of the fork). The only slight issue is that the seatpost may be stuck. I say this because I genuinely haven't made any serious effort to shift it, as it worked out to be the right height to me (I'm around 6 foot). Thankfully it appears to be the original one so it's not a case of an incorrect size having been shoehorned into the frame. I'm still currently riding the bike as is so I'll have a more serious crack at removal when I disassemble the bike, or I can leave it be if preferred.

Price wise I was thinking £220.00 posted in the UK for frame, fork, seat clamp and one way or another, the seatpost. Pics are below and feel free to hit me with any questions :)
