Picked this up for just over £50, and other than a couple of nick's it loosely fits the term "NOS". Considering it came with the bars, stem & an unmarked Deore headset, it was quite good value. I have most of the parts (XT) on their way or here already, but does anybody know what seatpost and saddle it would have had?

Cheers.......Nick

A few sunshine photos, will change the saddle at some point, just put it on because of the blue accents :facepalm: XT thumbies and Grab-on grips on their way: Although not flash, it was top of the Technium range, it is from the 80's, and if you are 6' 3" you need to grab all 20-21" frames that come your way :D

Cheers.......Nick

Oooh, that's nice, I love the colour and those straight blade forks look really smart.

The bike is great, but the price for which you got it is THE sweetspot. Finding nice vintage parts for a low price is the best part of building old bikes as far as I'm concerned!

Small update: minty XT cockpit controls have arrived, along with anodised Stronglight rings. I will hopefully change the pedals to some older XT Comps if I can find a nice pair.
Cheers...... Nick

for a Raleigh that is way nice 8)

Aside from a Tomac replica or a Ti offering, this has to be the best looking Raleigh I've seen
