1984 Raleigh Corsa, bought new by myself, built in the Lightweight Unit at Nottingham: first year for the Corsa and the only year in this paint - Oyster (pearl white). Shimano 600 SIS group (not shown here are the aero pedals and seatpin). Weinmann rims, stainless double butted spokes, red San Marco Rolls saddle, Cinelli 1a stem and Giro handlebar, Benotto ribbon - what else ? And Cinelli bar end plugs. Sedis silver chain, MKS pedals shown with Binda straps and Cinelli buttons. Bicycle build by my friend Steve Taylor - Steve mentioned in Wide-Eyed and Legless, book about the ANC entry in the 1987 Tour de France.
This bicycle purchased to replaced my stolen Roberts, which was returned by the police several years later !
