Hello, I am looking for a Raleigh Campagnolo Gran Sport bicycle, circa 70's or 80's. Must be complete and in good condition.

Not sure what you are after.........The last time I remember Campag launching a Gran Sport "groupset" was at the Harrogate bike show and the only one I remember was the Viking Severn Valley :D

I think he means a Raleigh Gran Sport (very rare)
Which were built with Campagnolo GS Groupset
Very nice bike actualy
Built with Reynolds 531c tubing
In the 1982 catalogue it was very high spec,one down from the flagship Team version,and the only difference were the sprint tubular rims.

I have one i'm restoring at the minute,but not a full blown resto
I'm re-finishing it in a pearl white with blue headstock and seat post panel.
D.I.Y Job
With a mix of components

The only Raleigh I can find that fits is this.

Circa 1960's.
Carlton did a Campag Gran sport equiped model in the early 80's.{I remember these from when worked for Raleigh at that time.
Best of look with your search.

This may be rather naughty as I have only just joined this forum but I do have a complete Raleigh Gran Sport that was bought with intention of converting to fixed but on collection and review of its condition it is far too good even for my nearest and dearest to have as a fixed.

PM or whatever is the equivalent on this forum to discuss further

I have a red Raleigh Gran Sport for sale.
There isn't much info on the web, maybe someone could help?
What is the price of these on the second hand market?
I found a few Gran Sports selling on US eBay, cheapest for around 700quid!
The bike is in good condition and most of it parts are still original.

Can post photos if someone is interested.
