    1996 Raleigh Royal Reynolds 708

    Looks great, been looking at a couple of these for a light tourer, what tyre clearance can you get away with in it? Current winter bike is 28c with mudguards, 32c without. Aiming to beat that

    What are the nicest 10-speed levers?

    Re: Maybe not one for the snobs but in from the left field is the Tiagra 4700’s had them on a couple of bikes and the shifting is way better than the 5700’s. Not quite as light and crisp as Ultegra but really reliable and benefit from the trickledown tech of the 11 speed kit. Although the pull...

    1983 Raleigh Rapide frame, 58cm, repainted.

    From the centre of the axle at the front dropout it’s about 375mm to the bottom of the crown race, 365mm to the centre of the brake mount hole and 360mm to the underside of the fork. Hope that helps

    1983 Raleigh Rapide frame, 58cm, repainted.

    I’ll go out and measure it, it’s for 700c wheels, I had 25c tyres on it and clearances were close.

    1983 Raleigh Rapide frame, 58cm, repainted.

    Based just outside Bristol (Nailsea) but can post, would need to get a quote but probably something around £10-15. A full bike is about £30 to post

    1983 Raleigh Rapide frame, 58cm, repainted.

    Bought this frame a while back as a pub frame, built it up but clearance was just too tight for mudguards. I’ve had it sandblasted and I’ve re-sprayed it with a ‘Charlie white pearl’ not an exact replica colour but close. Had H.Lloyd make me up a set of reproduction decals with the green...

    Anyone know what Raleigh this is?

    Re: As promised I’ve reinstated the shifter bosses, stripped and painted it. I also added a second set of bottle bosses as they’re always useful. The colour is ‘Charlie white pearl’ which is close but not spot on to original. Reproduction decals from H Lloyd. I’ll put it up on the classifieds...
