early Raleigh Record 531 in TI team colors,not sure about exact age but judging by the parts (all original and bought as such from second french owner) ,this is a 74-75 Raleigh Record.also noticeable is the yellow headtube instead of the more common black one. Parts included are a Raleigh engraved crankset,weinman brakes with carlton lever hoods, brooks leather,suntour retrofriction power shifters and suntour cyclone derailleurs.tubular rims from A.V.A.on Normandy high flange polished hubs (that look like new) and original Bluemel pump.

21/08/11: bike's been updated for touring:more practical clincher super gentlemen rims,Classic canvas saddle bag,perforated bartape, cablehousing,lightweight mudguards. took it on bike holiday to France,where it met another english classic;-)

I've got a raleigh team professional,world champion 1972 edition,
broken it all down,as the 27x1 1/4 rims are difficult to find,like the old racing ones,mine had weinmann rims,the over all eight of the wheels were superlight,now I've some deepdish 27s,its a project to bulid!

thanks for the comments,the

thanks for the comments,the 27 inch rims are indeed hard to get now,
good luck with your project and make sure you post some pics when done ok?

Love it!

I've got to get some steel.

with a name like yours, you

with a name like yours, you would expect you already have got some steel;-)
but thanks for the comment!

Really Cool

seeing the team jersey along with the bike. Very good preservation of cycling history.

team jersey

its quite rare this one as its long sleeved, age has done its thing with it, seriously frayed ends and holes under the armpits make it useless for anything else but bedroom wall art;-)

love the paint

i just got a look at the raleigh 2012 lineup and they are doing the grand prix with a very similar throwback paintjob


Raleigh tried the retro theme before only a few years ago on oversized aluminium 'Hennie Kuiper'Raleighs. but it never sold as succesfully as the original steel team bike;-)


but this new one looks pretty nice, its lugged reynolds 520
