Thanks Keithglos + Midlife
I really can't find a frame number... but looking at some Europas the seat stays are a single piece that wraps around the seat tube. There are lots of similarities.
Once I strip the paint back I'll look out for the frame number.
Can you help? I've been gifted this sorry looking Raleigh. I really like it and it's exactly my size.
Before restoring I need to know what it is. Can you point me in the right direction.
I was thinking 70s Grand Prix - but I'm not sure.
I'm normally a 90s MTB person... but want to give this a go.
Re: Is this a Marin?
I don't think it is a Marin.
Marin run the 2 gear cables under the down tube... just a single brake cable along the top tube.
Looks like an Orange to me?
On the later 90s frames with Maintou Fork option (I think 96 / 97 ish). I'm after the rigid Rockstar Fork.
It's actually for a '99 Eldridge Grade - but by then there was no rigid option.
Frame size is 20.5 if that makes a difference.
What have you got?
