Tonight’s OTS is sent to us from Jeremy.Â Another fine RGP to add to our collection.
Found this Raleigh Grand Prix at a local flea market for $39.00. Not a bad deal. Every thing is original except for the cables. It had the original cables but the needed replacing. Originally had white cables but I could only find black locally. Bike is in excellent shape. Guy I got it from said it came from an estate sale and was found hanging on the wall of the garage. You really can tell that it was not kept outside because it had very little rust. Tires are a little dry in the side wall but still have some life. Brakes are Weinmann 750 center pull with the original Weinmann pads which have turned hard as a rock and need replacing. Simplex drive train which is in good shape. Shifts ok but I have gotta learn to adjust these old simplex derailers. I might get some old suntour derailers and shifters off the bay and change these out. I am also planing on getting some inexpensive Weinmann allow wheels for it. Anyway, this old steel beast drives and rides like a dream. Very smooth. Hope you like it.
