Here is MCSF’s fetching 1968 Raleigh Record in BRG. 42 years of faithful service to one owner!
Found your web site the other day. Posted a comment for a J.C. Higgins Sears 10 speed and decided to submit my bike. Unfortunately my camera won’t go so low on the pixels. If you can’t post I’ll figure something else out.
Bike is mostly original. Purchased new for 69$. The old Simplex Prestige derailleurs disintegrated of course. In the 80’s I installed SunTour VX to get the large 37 tooth cog on the rear cluster……my alpine cluster. I also changed out the rear wheel, but the front is original. Axles were also changed out for skewers. But I didn’t keep the old wing nut lugs, seen any out there??? Pedals replaced.
I’ve had mixed reaction to ideas about repainting. One problem is I can’t find the decals to replace, two its not rusted, three it wouldn’t be original any more. I may just clear coat it to protect it.
I will re-chrome some parts, but the chain rings and cranks are in pretty good shape.
