I just bought this 1972 DL-1 this morning. It didn't steal it, but it's still exciting. Any advice or warnings about how to tackle the rod brakes?
How do you remove the wheels? It looks to me like the brake pads need to be removed?
I rode up and down the block.... it feels very odd to me. The headset was way too tight which didn't help. I wouldn't say it felt stable.... Actually kind of twitchy.
I now have 3 Raleighs and one Lotus. I think I have a Raleigh thing.
