Thanks to Chris667 for the frame, had a complete DX groupset lying around, and wanted ot hang it on something, just bought some rigid forks off the bay for 8 quid, and it had exact steer tube length, and with bits lying around, but have noticed the rh drive crank has cracks in it :shock: , and need some wider bars, and its good to go.

All DX apart from headset and bb, which are XT, rims are Aray RX7's, Psycho rear, and Z max

Ask Gil to make you some Raleigh Dyna Tech decals in the same colour blue as the forks, and then you'll have a very tidy looking bike there mate!

well that would be nice, but the frame is hand painted with a brush, have considered a complete respray, frame and forks to match

Hi

Looking at the pic, I am pretty sure this is not a Dyna-Tech.

I am delighted that's found such a nice home.
It's a really good frame. If it wasn't for the fact I've got such short legs, I'd have kept it. :oops:
Personally, I'd keep it gold. Nothing better than a bike that looks cheap but was actually really expensive.
