Here is Doug B’s 1979 Raleigh Record. Classy ride. Be sure to check out some of Doug B’s other very nice entries.
Rare find in the US. I believe this is a Euro spec Record. Reynolds 531 frame and fork, Campy dropouts, Normandy red label hubs, Weinmann rims and 605 brakes & levers, SR Raleigh logo crank w/hollow bottom bracket spindle, Suntour Cyclone derailleurs, power ratchet shifters. Only non-original parts are the seat, seatpost, freewheel and tires. I put a 6-spd shimano on there for riding in my area, but I have the original 5-spd suntour, which will hopefully make it suitable for inclusion on the site. I did a complete mechanical rebuild, and left the paint as it was when I got it. By the way, it rides like a dream. This bike with the Team colors (red, yellow and black), and “Team” name were fairly common here in the states, but I have not found many (one, to be precise) with the same paint job as this one in the states.
Thanks for the consideration.
