Worth it to finish breaking down '77 Raleigh?
I bought a banged up 1977 Raleigh Record Ltd, mostly for the good condition Araya alloy wheels, which I swapped onto my Motobecane mixte in place of the original steel wheels.
I figured I'd break down the rest of the bike for parts and recycle the frame (it's a goner - seat stay broke and was re-welded UGLY; couple of dents in the down
tube and seat tube).
I'm not exactly experienced at this, and don't have all the tools I need, so I was able to pull off the Weinmann 610 brakes, stem, handlebar, front and rear derailers (Suntour GT).
I don't have the tools to remove the fork or pull the crank. The fork looks to be in pretty good shape. The crank is pretty beat up.
Think there's any call for a good, straight '77 Raleigh fork? Is it worth it to buy the tools, or drag the frame to the co-op and try to remove these parts myself? Or just call it good?
Also, how does one remove the steel headbadge? It's in good condition, really pretty, and I'd like to keep it or sell it.
