How ’bout some Raleighs? Starting us off is George G’s 1978 Raleigh Competition GS. Spoiler alert: this is about as fancy as they get this week.
I’ve had this bicycle since the early eighties. Found it hanging in the back of a bike shop. Over the last five years I’ve converted it into a more comfortable performance bicycle. For the purists out there, I do have all the original parts.
Nitto stem, riser bars, Shimano brake levers, ergon grips, mks pedals, and , a kickstand. A long time ago a installed a Chorus crank 53/42, I thought I wanted the 53T. Suntour New Winner Ultra 6 13-26 freewheel. Sachs Chain, 700×28 Continental Gatorskins. Carridice Saddle Bag, Brooks B 17 Special saddle. Quik Stop brake pads.
It rides like a dream and still flies.
