Today’s OTS is a late 70s Raleigh Grand Prix sent in by Alex.Â I’m all about accessorizing one’s OTS, but aside from the that hideous striped bar wrap, all these accessories are far too functional for my liking.Â I prefer a bit more needlessness in the extra weight I pedal around.Â This main photo also bares a striking resemblance to this one from our early days.
I bought this old Raleigh from a guy who bought it at a yard sale, fixed it up, and turned it around to me. It appears to be mostly original parts with a few functional upgrades and personalization including, believe it or not, raising the saddle. It rides like a dream, and I don’t care what they say, I love my suicide handlebars.
