It was indeed an odd bluey/lilacy colour originally but got so chipped and scratched (and raleigh couldn't help with touchup paint for it) that it got a quick rattle can paintjob to tidy it up.
Its still got the Sakae SX ovaltech chainset 28/38/48 and the suntour 3040 mechs. Apart from the rear mech getting bent from a large rock in the first week i owned it i couldn't fault it.
Brake levers are Lee Chi and i think they are dia-comp cantilevers on it. Got a D stamped into each anyway.
Rims are seriously grooved and warped now and the rear wheel axle is bent. Seems to be missing half the bearings in the axles. Just metallicy grease left.
I probably ran it for 10 years solid doing 40-50 off-road miles a week so i got my moneys worth.
I'm in two minds whether to throw cash at it or just buy something else. I still fancy a Kona.
