New Zealand resident Raleigh competition


Hello people. I was lucky enough to score this Raleigh Competition, frame, stem, handlebars and brakes only. In a jiffy it turned into this single speed. The chrome is stuffed and the paint worn, however I liked the decals so much I decided to keep its history as is. These things as a novice Raleigh owner interested me: the braze on brake cable guides on top of top tube, the nifty braze on under BB cable guides, the lovely CC decal(?) on the seat tube top. The lovely 3ttt stem and Galli brakes and a handlebar wrap that is so beautifully done I will live with its thinness. I have nick named this bike brutus as the gearing I had available requires brute strength, but what a beautiful light and tight ride when conditions are right. At 30kmph on the flats a perfect blend of easy cadence and prolonged speed is possible. Too hard for me in the wind that's for sure. So is this an early 70's bike? If it is then it is my oldest.
