1978(79?) Raleigh T.I. Record

I have a 1978 or '79 Raleigh T.I. Record, the frame is full Reynolds 531, Worksop built 57cm.

Full Suntour Cyclone MKI, Weinmann levers and sidepull brakeset, Raleigh branded SR crankset and stem. The front wheel was rebuilt/respoked last summer Malliard Hub laced to a Matrix clincher rim, I just built up the rear wheel a little over a month ago Suntour Superbe hub laced to a Velocity Fusion rim with double butted spokes, and Suntour freewheel. The BB was also just replaced a few weeks ago with a new sealed bearing Shimano unit.



The old LOOK pedals will be replaces with some new quill style with toe clips.

The paint is in pretty good condition, no rust in the frame, a few spots on the top-tube that could be removed easily with rubbing compound. The bike shifts and brakes like a brand new bike, I've put over 500 miles on it so far this summer so far with no problems.

The bad, there are two small dents in the top tube, one the size of a dime the other smaller, it looks as though something fell on it in the previous owners storage.

I finally got my '85 Gitane Professional road worthy and that fits me better so this bike is going out to fund the build-up of a cross bike.
