    1978 Raleigh Professional Frame/Fork/Headset 24.5"/62cm $350

    Selling my 1978 Raleigh Pro frame & fork along with the Campagnolo headset (great shape recently repacked and adjusted). Asking $350, shipped in the lower 48. This frame is a repaint but a very nicely done repaint. The frame had top tube cable guides and down tube shifter mounts added prior to repainting. This is an easy ridable restoration or an excellent candidate for running modern components on a vintage frame.

    The condition is very good with one area on the top tube where there was some surface rust. I removed the paint and sealed with clear nail polish. When the brake cable is installed, it is not very noticeable. I really like the way this frame rides but I have too much stuff so it is time to move it on.

    62cm c-t Seat tube
    57cm c-c Top tube
    126mm rear spacing
    27.2 Seat post
    Short reach nutted brakes
    Can take a 28mm, 700c tire.

    wider tires=winner. Plus, the Super Tourer frame/fork & headset weigh 6oz. more than this frame/fork & headset. I can live with that weight "penalty" and be able to run fenders & 38mm tires.

    Both the mink blue and the chartreuse are great colors.

    This frame is going to make someone very happy. 28s are where it's at for a vintage go-fast.

    Nice! Just to clarify, you mention short reach nutted brakes to denote what the frame takes, and not what is for sale? My 531 frames of the period were built for 27" rims, but when fitting 700s, would no longer take short reach brakes.
    I'm not a buyer, (have my quota!) - but I would be, however, if I wanted a top-tier intro to butted steel.

    Yes and thanks for helping clarify. The frame for 1978, had tighter geometry than previous years. The brake reach is shorter than on the earlier models. I used a set of standard reach, Campagnolo Nuovo Record era brakes (which worked fine) but the pads were at the top of the slot on the front and rear. Here are some pics of that:

    I also used Challenge Parigi Roubaix tires which when inflated were close to 30mm.

    Nice Frame.
    I have my quota plus one, or I would be asking for your paypal account.
    (Perhaps quota plus two?)
