In my experience in the trade, if you the frame owner has the original sale receipt, it may be that the frame had a lifetime warranty, in which case Raleigh would supply the equivalent frame as a replacement. Somehow I fear you wouldnt want it, what with Special Pruducts division being shut down 15years ago?

I know someone that had a GT Xizang welded a few years back, but it cracked again.

I asked at the deale I bought the TORUS XT from if he would send it back last year when it broke he refused. I was in a different shop later in the year and as he was a Raleigh dealer and a cyclist! Deeside Cycles - Connas Quay-North Wales) he said he would send it back. Raleigh sent it back to the original dealer ( sic) with a note saying "out of warranty". Well I bought it in 1994 so if the warranty was 15 years ( I had the receipt) it was in warranty when I asked at the origjnal dealer but not by the time it had gone round the houses. SAD...

File comment: As you can see failure is probably due to fretting at the welds (which have "cold overlap on one edge).

Hey mate, welcome. You're best bet is in here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=78

Make sure you post up some photos as condition is key. Torus's go for ok money from what I've seen. Depends on condition and kit it comes with.

Good luck.

Give it a goog check if its the Welded Titaneum Xt. My forks also failed. The lug came out on a bend Ouch. They where only hammered in, with grease on, Dur. On close examination the two front fork tubes where splitting down the whole length as well scary. They where made by X-Lite for dyna tec
