Just got a 1985ish example,
and after looking for an affordable basic light-weight Raleigh for ages,
this is it, as found, but with cobwebs removed and spiders evicted:
Clean and tidy, but hardly lightweight it seems to me.
Reynolds 501 is entry level stuff, isn't it?
Not too disappointed, but my Viscounts are a lot lighter.
This has a Huret front mech, and Shimano mystery rear:
The angle of the cable leaving the braze on looks terrible to me!!
Needs a shorter outer there by the look of it.
The usual Weinmann brakes and levers, but with a gaudy gold coloured finish.
The Sugino chain-wheel also:
Still, I got it for around twice the price of the new Schwalbe Marathons, so it looks OK for the money.
So, who knows anything about RRS?
RRA is next...
