As per my 'famous last words' in here:
I've ended up getting another dead raleigh to play with.
Hoping to keep all original parts and even get a close match to the original paint and decals.
My last build was out of necessity - the old clunker was on its last legs.
This build is for love/interest/fun etc.. so hopefully I wont cut corners and simply spray it with whatever paint is on offer at the local B&Q.
Photos and story here.
If anyone already done a zenith (they must have surely?) tips about decals and the like gratefuly received.
Just to rub it in, I only paid £2.50 for it - rack, guards, etc.. all included!
