Hi everyone,

New member, living in the Chicago area. I am older (50s) and have been riding since the late '60s. I still ride my 1973 Raleigh RRA (531db, full campy NR/SR). Did a very slight bit of racing in my younger days, and rode the first Ragbrai on a Raleigh International. Still do some riding, not nearly as much as I used to (or enough!). Also interested in golf, audio, and music. My brother pointed me to this forum (I'd seen it before) and figured it was about time to join.

Hello Pars, who's your brother?

Errmmm, we will need photos of the Raleigh over at the Classic & Vintage forum, if you don't mind, and whenever you have time . We always enjoy admiring classic machines.

Welcome to BF!

No, unfortunately, there's still little red 'x'es. I'll try a different machine later...

MUCH better! I like the red pully wheels on the rear derailleur . Not to mention those are nice lugs!
