Raleigh Grand Prix - what have I got ?
I am riding a bike for a while, and now that I found BF, I wonder what it is I am riding.
Raleigh - Grand Prix (now that I think about it there may not be a "d" on the end of "grand")
serial number starts with RD4 then a 5 digit number
Sticker on frame says "Made in Canada" (I'm in Canada so that's not unexpected to see)
20-30 high tensile
bb has "custom" cranks 165, with a 42-52 ring
rear freewheel is 6 speed 13-28
I suspect cranks and front rings to be aftermarket, but no way to know.
What can you tell me about this bike ?
I need a new rear rim, mines got a flat spot.
Looking for something strong on a budget, I'm not really concerned about ounces here.
