    Is this the frame that was on Ebay a short while ago? I was considering a bid.

    1974 Raleigh International
    I just got done restoring the frame.
    It's set up as a sport tourer with wide-range gearing, 27x1-1/4 wheels, and randonneur bars-- the way International's should have...

    When I was touring in Portugal in 1978 we purposely went out of our way to ride on a stretch of stone road built by the Romans. Within about 5 seconds we realized it was a big mistake.

    In early 1983 I bought an '82 Trek 710 frame for $225. It's a great frame for sport riding, commuting, or light touring. There are some Trek's that bring pretty high prices, like the 720 and some of...

    The International's I'm looking at on the web seem to be a bit more orange and not quite as metallic, so no it didn't turn out 100% authentic. But I like it very much, and it's not going to be built...

    1974 Raleigh International restoration

    I bought this frame on BF from bluedevil63 last year for $186 shipped. It was a project frame, structurally fine but in need of some work. The chrome on the fork was bad but that would be easy to...

    Here in Mexico we have our own version of pavé, called empredrado. But instead of artisan-carved blocks, it's just plain old rocks with some gravel in between. Many streets are covered with this....

    Why can't I copy images anymore?

    I used to be able to copy images from Flickr to BF just by using the "copy" function, but that no longer seems to be an option here. What's the deal?

    The black/red scheme was also original for some of the early 70's Le Champions, although not exactly the way yours was painted. And all the black/red ones I've seen have chromed forks and stays.

    Nice project Jim. How about some photos of the frame? I restored a 72 Le Champion a couple years ago. Like yours it still had a lot of original parts. The frame looked horrible although structurally...

    Looks pretty solid to me, the leather on those things is really thick. I have one that has a lot of cracking, but it will still probably outlast me.

    There are lots and lots of non-dented frames around, why bother with this one unless it's free? Even then I don't think I'd mess with it unless I was a framebuilder myself.
