This started with a mini restoration on my 92 Dynatech Ogre after visiting this site a few months ago and catching the retro bug. Once that was finished I felt the need for more retro bikage in my life and started the hunt for the next project.
Having worked in a couple of Raleigh shops BITD and lusted after some of the top end machines I used to sell, but could never afford at the time, the project had to be an old raleigh as a companion for my Dynatech. So when Nevadasmith put the Peak frameset up for sale it was a no brainer really. The frame is a 19" which is slightly bigger than I would normally go for but at the age of 37 I'm long over due a growth spurt so I'm sure I'll grow in to it
Most of the bits for the build have arrived but am still waiting on some key pieces so will add updates as things progress. In the mean time there's a pic of the parts I have started restoring with retrobike anti ageing cream (aka Autosol).
