Well its been a long time coming, life just seems to have a way of getting in the way. As does trying to get decals 100% right as well as find parts.

So the up date .......

Frame is now back and looking great in its pearl white and blue scheme, the decals are pretty much spot on (still waiting to get the horizontal "Raleigh" words 100%.

Found the correct alloy Ofmega head set.

By using a set of decals as the masks we were able to get a virtually perfect line between the blue and white that matches the shape of the chevron so you don't get any blue bleed under the red.

Found a lovely correct Cinelli stem to match the bars and original pearl white benotto tape.

Hope you like the pics of where it is up to now .....

Couple more.

Next step are to get the wheels back from builder, finish the decals, send the rear mech off to be customised and start the build in full.

Re:

That is just beautiful , amazing work.... Don`t know if you`ve ever seen these pictures from `85 , maybe your frame ? ( hope you dont mind me posting them ) although the frame on the right photo seems a bit smaller on the head tube and if you compare the seat tube decals to the bottle cage bosses ? maybe we retrobikers become a bit too obsessive lol
