As most of you probably are not so familiar with the Rafty brand, first an introduction on Rafty: Rafty was a small framebuilder in Haarlem, The Netherlands. All frame's were custom made and Rafty's can be considered as very exclusive. I won't be susprised if all polished Rafty's can be counted on only one hand. The frames were built by Edward Hagen, over here also known as iceskater. For additional information go to http://www.hagencycle.nl/
were you will be informed on Edward's current brand Hagen Cycles.
I recently took notice of the information that the Rafty brand is likely to make its return!
The machined stem is an ALPA (later Footwork), another Dutch brand from back then.
Manitou Mach 5 SX. In another bike I have a RondWP Hydro Pro 2. Of course that would better matching, because also Dutch. Maybe I will swap.
Notice the square tubed rear triangle. In the background a storks' nest
