New find - Mid 80's Raleigh Pursuit. She's pretty!

I just got her! I think it's an '85. 12-speed with main tubes from Reynolds 501, Shimano shifters, Raleigh cranks, Dia-Compe brakes, and aluminium wheels. It also has 27'' wheels. Nice lugwork and nice paint!





What do you think???? Is she a keeper? Should I stay faithful to my Peugeot?

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I'm pretty happy with my pursuit! By the way, your is about an 88 model, just like mine, but a different color. Yes, it is a pretty one! I'd keep her!

Well, do you prefer London or Paris? While I'd take Paris any day, I prefer certain Raleighs. The color/paint job on this one's quite nice, though I personally hate stem shifters, foam grips and suicide brake levers.

It doesn't quite go with your typewriter, though .
