New to the forum but longtime fan of vintage bikes. (Last one was a zebrakinkio with suntour comps and brooks seat ... recently stolen ) For my next project I've decided to look for a 70's ralleigh road bike for rebuilding/customizing, but the more I learn the more I have questions:
What is better, the Grand Prix or the Grand Sport?
I hear that the Reynolds 531 is a good frame to look for ... any Raleigh models of this age come with such a frame?
Any other advice? I think the older Raleighs with the Nottingham badge are neat-looking, but when did they stop making them there and how much better are the asian variants?
I'm less concerned about components, as I'll likley swap out for newer stuff.
Thanks in advance,
