1990 Raleigh Mirage Made in England 501 Reynolds XL MTB Frameset

SOLD


New to me, I've never seen a Nottingham, England Raleigh MTB this era. Lugged steel frame,501 tubes, 58cm ST CTT, 58.5cm TT CTC. Came to me incomplete, donor MTBs are plentiful. WYSIWYG

Well used but still a survivor.

$60 plus ship and pack, discount for pickup.

I'll post pictures on my Facebook page if there is interest!

"Exage trail ensemble". Cool graphics and metal headbadge!

Correction/update, it looks to be a Raleigh Mirage, either 1989 or 1990.

26 inch MTB sized. Bike came just as a frame. I can test fit a wheel if someone is seriously interested.

Low cost gravel grinder / bikepacking bike. I have a heavy old diamondback frame that I considered for such a build, but a lighter frame would be a better choice....

An IGH would work with this too. That would be a neat city bike build.

Nice frame! I have no need, but a good candidate for some interesting builds. You don't see these often.

It will probably go to the co-op if no one grabs it this week.

Wow that frame set looks to have about the longest wheelbase on a production MTB I have seen. This would make a great project bike for a large rider some one 6'4 and 200lbs + maybe you should post a tag in the Clydesdales section. Great find just too big for most riders.

I know, right? This is me. 6'4" 202# Would love a gravel touring bike. My Alyeska wasn't really up to the rigors of the muddy towpath of the C and O last summer....

Don't let it go yet. I owe Standalone a favor. If he wants it we will have to work something out.
Still waiting for you to come out and ride in Wisconsin, Bill.

I'll tell you, if it was my size, you'd have to pry my fingers off this bike.

Bill, I will take this. You will be shipping to Standalone. I will cover the frame $60 and he will make arrangements for shipping.

I'm sure I have it but PM me your PayPal ID.
Thanks,
Cory
