Great deal on a nice 80s tourer. It kept its' gears.

It was sitting next to a rough Centurion Super LeMans, previous owner took the stem, crank, bars and swapped them from each bike before he or someone donated them. He installed Suntour barend shifters on the raleigh as well. I don't know why he put the Raleigh stem in the Centurion, but maybe his riding companion needed a longer stem or something.

The Marathon was a nicer bike in every way, so I chose it over the LeMans. Money prevented me from buying both and the Centurion was just as much money as the Raleigh or else I would've bought as well.

Not much rust, paint is good, no frame damage.. I put new gumwalls on it and an old Brooks B17 on it as well as black cork, and gave it to my girlfriend of about one week, at the time. I love to give cool bikes to good people.
