My first conversion project. Bought the Raleigh complete as 21 speed rarely used via craigslist. Stripped all parts off and put them aside so I can convert it back if I decide to someday. It was quite the project. BB wasnt a standard size plus it came with coitered BB. Had to have the BB housing bored to fit a Shimano BB that was suitable for fixed gear. The head tube was also an oddball size. No 1" headset would fit properly as it was just under 1". Ended up borning the headtube to fit a Tiange Headset. The original Raleigh fork was broken during a really bad encounter with a pothole.

I've included pix of the original and the new. Updated photo to show hornet as she is today with risers and matching rims and different tires.

Now I'm building up an 1956 Raleigh with 3-speed Sturmy for my girlfriend.

Real Nice, Hornet? New one

Real Nice, Hornet? New one on me though of course, I knew Record.

Yellows have got to be the best colour for bikes, don't think the Grand Prix ever came in yellah.

What kind of tire do you

What kind of tire do you have on the rear of that pictured bike?

when the standing still subsides, the moving will resides.
each covert compassion yields to its known spectacle.

Ah those are Schwalbe

Ah those are Schwalbe tires.



this bike no longer has the DeepV's, Wellgo's and the bars. All have since been replaced with Suzue Hubs laced to Mavic cinchers, raceface riser bar cut short with bmx grips. Its also Shimano SPD clip pedals too.
