    I haven't seen that model before. Maybe made in Canada? Whatever it is, it must have been at the very bottom of the product line.

    Raleigh Grand Prix? Of what vintage? If I recall correctly, some of them have an unusual bottom bracket, for which it will be difficult to find a cotterless spindle.

    Well, I'm no expert on French anything, but I agree it looks pre-war. The stem, the seat post, the fender attachment, the straight cut lugs, all these things resemble bikes from the 30's that I've...

    Hmm, wow, cool.

    I'm guessing the brake levers are not original, but whatever.

    Questions:

    --- are the wheels 27" or 700c?

    ---if 27", would the brakes adjust to 700c size?

    I have one that I made from a brake lever. It clamps to the 22.2 mm section of stem above the headset, so isn't involved with the headset at all. You can make your own, or pm me and I'll send you...

    And bear in mind, the rules change on older bikes. A 1980 bike with a cottered crank is probably junk, but a 1965 bike with a cottered crank may be very nice indeed.

    Well, since he's local, I'd take it to Gilmour and see if he can tell you anything. Might be a really good 650b candidate.

    Riding the saddle 30 miles after getting it wet, well, that probably wasn't a very good idea. But I guess you figured that out.
