Raleigh Competition

Hi There.

This is my first attempt at this sort of thing, be gentle.

I aquired an old Raleigh Competition from the side of the road and am fixing it up.

I estimate that it is 25 - 30 years old. It is a 27" wheel size with sew on tires. The frame is painted black with tan trim. The size of this beast is 24 1/2 " from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat post. (the thing is HUGE!!). The frame is of Reynolds 501 alloy along with the forks and stays. It has a serial #G9004 on thr lower side of the bottom bracket. All of the deraillers are market Huret.

The bike is in generally good shape and is taking only basic maintainance items to fix-up. The sew on tires even hold air.

If any one has any information about this bike I would really apreciate the help. I'm just curious about the age, or any historical tid-bits they may have.

Thanks, roghill
