This was my dream frame as a 12 year old in Belfast. I bought it two years ago when I decided that none of the custom builders I was looking at got me as excited as this old gem. It took me ages to track it down; finally finding it in Canada. I built it with semi-correct Campagnolo... though a purist will spot the odd ball mix n' match. Sorry the picture is crappy. I had just returned from wringing myself out on New Jersey's version of the Alps... (a whopping six mile climb
) on a typically hot Summer day. The bike rides very nicely and hasn't lost anything in the 26 years since it was first sold.
I've picked up a modern Bianchi so I can put the Raleigh away in bad weather.
