73 Raleigh RRA-only 1 Picture from Sheldonbrown.com none of the one he has
Hi I have a Mint Condition RALEIGH RRA -this is probably the rarest Raleigh from the 70s as these bikes were actually raced in the Tour de France and only made for 1 year.
As much as I love the bike I would like to trade it for something newer either a carbon Road Bike or a Carbon 29er. This is a true Collector's bike.
The component group is the vaunted SIMPLEX Super LJ all stainless and alloy with Stronglight cranks. Regina cassette-all the bells and whistles. It was also the only year to feature the Weinman side pull brakes in black. The bike was completely restored by California Cycle Art-these are the same guys that painted the bikes for Masi and Confente back in the day, wonderful stuff. I purchased the bike from a man in California whose brother raced the bike in the 70s. This makes me technically the 3rd owner in almost 40 years.
If you have the cash and want to buy it out right make me an offer. (208) 860-7196
Serious buyers and inquires only please. Respond via email and I will get back to you with pics.
Here is a link about the bike on Sheldon Browns website. See white race bike at bottom of page, mine is in better condition. Thanks

Italian and Brit steel on eBaY and Simplex forkend frame
A French frame with what looks like a fake Reynolds decal and real ones which can probably be searched "1710gr" and Saronni Colnago and a bunch of Treviso's, as well as a Mink Raleigh, mebbe two Mink Raleighs. Not that I like eBaY with its customer no-service.
Duueuwde if you're going to put my quick replies out of context, maybe I could make it germane by admitting I am looking for one of those, preferably a consistent meter or two faster.
