    1984 Raleigh Olympian

    1984 Raleigh Olympian 12-speed sport touring bike. It has a tall burgundy and gold 25" Chrome Moly double butted frame, Suntour derailleurs, and Dia-Compe 500 brakes. The bike has new 27" tires and tubes that only have 15 miles put on them. It is all original, except for the tires. The cables and bearings have been adjusted this month, and the bike is ready to have some miles put on it!





    He's asking 125 + is a good half hour drive.

    I'm guessing his measuring is off. I can't imagine that this one is actually 63cm

    Can't go wrong for $125 on a bike that looks new and unridden,...

    Good price for that bike , and to my eye, looks to be a 25 incher. If the bottom bracket and hubs have not been taken apart, cleaned , and re-packed , you may want to do that. Good luck !
    I ride because... I really enjoy it !

    Definitely a really fair price given condition, go for it.

    +1 This is a good deal, by far the most legit bike you've posted after all those re-paints. I'd go for it at $125.

    Idk, that looks close to a 63cm to me. Maybe a bit smaller, but it's at least a 58.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
