Early 80s Raleigh USA road bike made from Raleigh 555 tubing, which was rebranded Reynolds 531. Paint and decals stripped.

Generic stem, Syntace bullhorns.

Stock fork, awful stock integrated headset.

These wheels moved to my Porter. Now Formula/Mavic CPX33


Sugino GLP, Shimano Ultegra

Currently Selle Flite Gel (not pictured)

Chromo eggbeaters


I didn't know about Pista stigma when I stripped the paint off of it, but I don't care. She's a joy. I learned everything I know from putting this bike together. Will probably become more touring-oriented in the future.

pista stigma?

'80s Raleigh != Chrome Pista... there's no shame in that!

555 rides sweet as butter, too!

I was just wondering how the clearcoat process went for you? How many coats did you apply?
