Raleigh Granada vintage 12 speed touring cycle.
Metallic Royal blue and grey finish.
Frame size - 64cm/25" centre to top.

I have owned this bike for 26 years, but it has recently had a full major service having the following treatment:
Both wheels rebuilt with stainless steel spokes
New Schwalbe Marathon wet weather tyres
New Rav X Race X gel saddle with Cr-Mo rails
New comfort bar tape
New brake lever shrouds
New light-weight mudguards
New brake and gear cables and sheathing
New Rav X bottle cage
Full clean and regrease of all bearings

It has a couple of scratches as you would expect for a bike of this age, but otherwise it is in immaculate condition.
Specification:
Hand built Reynolds 531 frame
Raleigh Weinmann 610 centre pull brakes
Sakae custom bars and stem
Sachs Huret front front and rear derailleurs
Weinmann 716 Alloy wheels

PEDALS NOT INCLUDED

This is a real bargain at £300. You will not find another example of this standard.

Collection only, 5 mins from J37 M1

Contact Gareth (garethmgraham@gmail.com) with any questions and to receive photos (too large to add to post!)

Should've said "this is how I shrink pics to fit":

I use a PC with Win7 - I don't know if something similar is possible in other versions or on a Mac.

Load pics to PC

Open pic (in Picture Viewer)

Use "Snipping Tool" from Start Menu to copy and save pic

This reduces the pic to an "uploadable" size. Don't ask me how, but it works for me!

Sorry I failed to spot you'd said your pics were too big :oops:

(Other members may have different - or better - ways of shrinking pics. Guys? Girls?)

Fab Gasman! Just right - it's a big b*gger though...

Incredible condition and sure to appeal to many of our longer-legged members...

Thanks for sorting this out.
