hi kids. i'm a recent convert from mtb'ing - due to my rescuing a garbage bound Raleigh Grand Prix, i'm estimating a '77. i used to be white/black, and although it was pretty rough the frame had very little damage. i'm in the process of restoring it - of course running into a few problems. rusty cables, nonfunctioning front der, and dry rotted tires to start. the bb is shot and needs badly replaced. but the rear hub/cassette is quite and oddity to me. the cassette is a one piece, 5spd, freewheel - but it seems to me that it's part of the hub... although it may just be threaded with some serious thread damage. i can't figure out what make it is, but i'd love to save it. it's in relatively great shape, but is missing what i think is a pawl spring. the chainguard is a Sturmey, but this hub definitely isn't. maybe a suntour?
Welcome to Bike Forums. You might want to post a photo of your bike in the Classic & Vintage forum, they can help you identify the year. And the Bicycle Mechanics forum can help you with any questions you have about repairing and replacing components.
