Hi all,
I'm new here, found this site while searching for info and I'm glad I did!

Here's my recently purchased 1985 Raleigh USA (Taiwan manufacture), 63cm lugged 555SL (Tange?) frame with original blackberry paint job with chrome headtube, fork and chain~seat stays. Not the finest vintage but a lovely rider!

chrome headset, Raleigh SR drop bars, Star levers with suicide bars (not shown), Cinelli bar tape, unknown brake calipers (can't read?), original Raleigh cables, Shimano Golden Arrow front and rear derailleurs, 6 speed freewheel, Raleigh SR crank and pedals, SR 2 speed chainrings, original BB, 700C rims with soon to be replaced Kenda 700x25C tires and tubes, original seatpost waiting on a new old seat! Weight is 26 pounds as shown.

First road bike I've owned since college many years ago and I'm in love again!
Jim :wink:

I would have sworn that was an Ofmega Mistral chainset http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.aspx? ... AbsPos=256 another Raleigh rip off :wink:

Thanks so much for the detective work Kermit! Indeed the chainset looks identical.
