1981 Raleigh Record Ace. 22.5 inch. My Eroica bike. Took me round the 100 mile Eroica course this year and didn't miss a beat.
I completely rebuilt her prior to this years ride. New Headset, Bottom Bracket, cables, stem, cassette, chain and wheelset. The front wheel was a NOS US built Aviner with a Deore hub (cost £50) and the rear was a new Weinnman rim with a quando hub (only a cheapy but bullet proof). The bars have had cinelli gel pads put under the bar tape.
She is Reynolds 531 throughout and back in the day was a top quality machine. She has a really cool drilled chainset and she rides so well.
I'll include the original wheelset, some one sided SPDs (with new chrome cages so you can 'cheat' at Eroica) and s set of shimano 600 downtube shifters. (Nothing wrong with the shifters on there but I really liked the look of these cost £30)
Bad bits- brake hoods could probably do with replacing, small dink on top tube
The frame does have a lot of marks but she wasn't bad enough to lose the original decals and have her resprayed. Please don't expect a new bike, she is 37 years old. However, she rides like a dream and is fully Eroica ready. Will happily send any pics
Would prefer collection but will courier if you arrange or would deliver locally.

Hi could you send me some Pictures please? If you could send some of the road ace as well that would be great.
