Ten dollar '84 Raleigh FG project for my best friend. I bought him a cheap geared Fuji that is heavy and slow, and it's no longer his style. I found this Raleigh at a recycler and took the gears off. It came with low level components but the frame is a decent 502 series Reynolds. My plan is to touch up the shitty faded decades-old paint, find some hot wheels, and ride with him. I cut the bars and started cleaning the frame and stripping it down. He decided today he wants it fixed.
