I thought it rude not to buy it as a stablemate for it's less well endowed "Moonshine"
Not much (virtually none) info on these anywhere, Reynolds 653 "ATB" tubing, I am thinking "531" fork blades & not "653", but don't know for sure as no decals. I do know it was a shortlived top of the range bike, seller confirmed kitted out with XC PRO when he got it.Obviously it is faded, but I am going to have it resprayed, and then transfer my NOS XC PRO kit off the Cindercone, that should save a few £££ The few questions I do have are: What stem would this have had when new, did it really have the one pictured below?, and if so, what colour would the bars have been?, and if not, what colour do you think both the stem & bars would have been. The other question I have is about the decals. Obviously the green raleigh is not original, but in some of the pics you can just make out the original shadows of previous decals. Now these don't look like the ones on the one below, as they are exactly the same as my Moonshine Oh well, maybe I should wait for Bikemeister2000 to pop by.
