    dead raleigh?

    So, in the great roadster for $0 project, I've been collecting bits.

    (not photographed are a nice sheffielfd step through and an okay royce union step through, and I've got plenty of wheels and AW hubs)

    Here's the sears frame (I'll get to the dead raleigh soon)- it is austrian, it's fine and light and would pass for a sports frame if no one was looking too close:



    Here's a random raleigh fork I dug out of the trash, with a repairable fender.



    Here's the step through sports, note the crank....





    and here's the poor green raleigh that looks to be dead. This one hurts. (I also found another black raleigh front fender, also in the frame)






    Sitting underneath 5 frames, I thought I'd found my frame! Then. I saw the wound. Gutshot. Toast. I know nothing about frame repair, but this looks like a doozy. The color, the size... this is what I'm after. Alas, Raleigh, I never knew him.


    I suppose what I should do is build up the sports that I've got to be as right as possible and hang the poor green hunter on the wall of the bar, but... but.....

    PM me at the end of your build if you have the pedals on that Raleigh sitting in your parts box.
