Well I thought I would post my Dunelt, since I mentioned it in a previous post, but did not have a small enough photo and for some reason Photoshop was not working. Reloaded Photoshop reduced the size and here it is (click on the image to see it larger):
That was taken just after it arrived last year. It had a rusted out white mattress saddle on it, I changed that for the Brooks B-72 in the photo and then realized I should take some photos before doing any more to it. It cleaned up pretty nice, but the front wheel is not original, I keep looking for an original 32 spoke but they are few and far between down here in the North Carolina Mountains and I have seen nothing reasonable on eBay. The S-A hub is stamped 75 but there is a 1974 registration sticker on the bike so it was probably replaced. I replaced the cables with black ones, and want o find black replacements for the grips. I would also like to find a rack and generator light set for it but I can live without those.
I have a basket case Raleigh as well with most of the components rusted beyond use. I eventually plan on rebuilding it with alloy components as and having it powder coated to use as a utility bike. I just ordered a pair of Sun rims with that in mind.
Does anyone else besides me find it amusing that Raleigh managed to sell a dozen models each of 20-30 brands of bicycle while only making four frames, gents 21 & 23 inch and ladies 19 & 21 inch?
