Greetings From NorCal

Hello All,

My name is EJ, and I am glad to have found this site. I have recently begun searching out and buying old ten speeds to refurbish and enjoy. I got 2 bikes off of craigslist here locally. One is a Raleigh Grand Prix in excellent condition. It has taken me awhile to get used to it, but I really dig it. Now, I am trying to figure out its exact year of production and learning about all the parts. The other ten speed is a complete mystery aside from the Suntour parts. I cant seem to find a model or maker for that matter. But, I do love the frame. Im planning on doing a complete rebuild of this one and hopefully in the process I will find out the model, maker and year of production. Boy, I sure got the bug and love working on and riding these old ten speeds.

If anyone is able to offer insite on my mystery ten speed I would sure appreciate it.

Thanks for having me on this great board!

EJ from the North Bay

Hi EJ, visit the Northern California forum and see who's out there with you. A lot of our C & V members live in the Bay Area--you may have even gotten your bikes from one of our members.
