Super excited to stick a deposit down on this 1997 Ti Raleigh mtb today. I’ve been after this for a couple of years as I also have got the road bike equivalent from the same year.
I have got the 1997 bronze RSP optima tubed Raleigh mtrax which I have slowly been upgrading with lots of M950 XTR and some lovely dark grey Mavic M7CD Energy rims, so all the good parts with make their way onto the Ti now. I’ve never know much about pace forks - they were well out of my price range BITD so it would be great to know a bit more about these ones if anyone is happy to tell me.
I’ll need to take off the decals which aren’t right, brush finish the frame and I’ll have the correct decals made up but if anyone has got the right headbadge for sale I’d be really grateful.
Thanks.

Love the colour of the bronze mtrax :cool:

Which headbadge do you mean? the ti looks like it has a headbadge already!

Re:

The Ti just has an M-Trax decal meant for the frame on the head tube.
I’d really like an RSP heron badge.
The bronze is a beautiful colour thanks. Looks like a year old rather than 20.

Re:

Love bikes, lovely frames. I have couple and think they are very under rated. Love the bronze colour.

On the BB shell there should be a serial number which starts with a letter...A, B, C etc. If you let us know what that is we should be able to give you year of manufacture.

Thanks I’ll have a really good look for cracks before I hand over the money. I’m thinking 93/94 ish but not got the serial number yet. The blue rectangular decal is what I think it should have. Pics appreciated as I’ll be able to get one made up. Also maybe pics of which decals are on seat tube?
