Its no use to me. So dont want anything for it.
Its blue. Got long drop out slots.
Dont think its got gear lever bosses on the down tube. Think its early 80s.
Got a couple of other big Raleigh road frames. There a bit newer. Ones got nice Unicrown forks.
You could have them too.
Will have to have a look at it again. I will take some pictures and measurements.
Got some road and MTB parts too. Like stems, Bars and brakes that can go with it.
Heres a picture of my Elswick Hopper Whirlwind single speed.
I think its an early 70s bike that had 26" steel 5 speed wheels, cottered cranks and steel drop bars. I built a 27" steel rim onto a Maillard alloy hub that I messed with the spacers on. Its got SR alloy cranks. The big ring had corroded teeth, and couldnt be removed. So I cut off all the teeth and filed it round, its a sort of chainguard now. Its got Weimman 500 sidepull brakes with CLB aero levers. The SR stem has cut of drop bars with red foam covering from an exercise bike. The mudguards were from a ladies roadster. But there a bit close to the tyres. Think I'll run it with shortie mudguards. Or maybe build a pair of 700c wheels for it.
