For your viewing pleasure:

A well-aged Raleigh Record, Made in England.



This makes me tired.

Your wife didn't drag that Record home, she has better judgement than that.

As my lawyers always remind me "neglect" is willfull and, can result in legal fines & punishment. The proper way to escape this judgement is to describe the entire mess as a "failure" which is more like an "accident" and, will keep yo ass outa jail.

My first ten speed was a Record.

That picture does not instill a sense of longing.

Not much there to work with.
This is a fixed wheel candidate.
Otherwise might make a decent lobster trap anchor.
