thanks for all your help guys regarding my wanted add.
i managed to pick up a raleigh apex for the grand sum of £60 deliverd.
all i have done so far is replace the seatpost for the one pictured,remove the graphics,replace the bars-stem and grips,fit new dmr peddles and swap the canti brakes for some shiney ones.
the bike has had very little use and rides nicer than my marin.

bonus :lol:

Blimey that's a tall one! Granted my 17" does not fit me well at all mind, nice understated modern classic Raleighs. Good stuff. Planning to do a lot to it/with it, or time for next project...?

I kinda want to keep mine standard, Flex stem, cromo post, beige groupo etc but at same time might make it into a SS for the GF... Hmmm

Smart looking bike for a big'un!! Would be nice to get decals back on to show it off but understand it's be a big cost compared to the bargain price you got it for..
