Raleigh Grand Prix build
I posted a couple of weeks ago about the bike fairy (wife) bringing me home a bike that work colleague gave to her.
It's been stripped down and rattlecanned. Slowly cleaning up the bits and pieces before I pass it along to my daughters boyfriend.
I had to sacrifice the decals since the frame was pretty nicked up but I like how it came out. Curious as to what some of you think of the blue and black.
The boy expressed an interest in a more upright riding style so I looking out for some north road style bars and accompanying brake levers thumbshifters and a clamp on downtube cable stop (hint hint).

Reason: Baahhaha, I originally misspelled thumbshifters and it came out like this, thumb****ers
