Hey everyone, if you had seen my intro as well as replied with some kind words, thankyou and im glad to be here.
I will start my entrance into the forums here in the awesome v&c section as currently is where i, as well as my gf are at personally.
Her bike could get its own thread here soon but the bike i just picked up needed a bit more love so thats where this thread starts.
Gazelle built '74 Raliegh Grand Prix
she's completely stock and in amazing condition! LOL all the way to the original Raliegh racing tires!
However, along with all that awesomeness comes some lack of love, FD mount is cracked, RD idler gears missing teeth, tires/tubes wasted, brake blocks rock hard and the cables are original as are the housings, not to mention the un-lovely cottered cranks...
Broken front derailleur
Cottered crank set
Sunday Funday bike night, we decided to spend the eveing with pizza n beer (i must say i have a like minded and awesome gf!), needless to say, it was clean and inspect night for our bikes!
...so here is my new starting point, pretty excited!
k, hope you like where this lil gem is going, ill post up more here in few...
