I can remove the suicide levers, but then you are left with the little studs sticking out. I guess I could just stretch some break hoods over them, or I've seen where people have hacksawed off that stud.
Bar tape is original!
And I finally have a shiny red bike, my boyhood dream. The condition of the paint job is really something. Even the drive side chainstay, that usually gets beat up, has just a few little chain dings.
The cranks have the original cotter pins with he Raleigh "R" on the nuts. Its also a Nottingham built bike, Feruary of 74, as per the serial number.
