Looking at that Boston's Craig's List; I'm not sure if these are one's normal Grand Prixs though the frames may well be. Which means I think, these could be Raleighs that were sold in England/UK. I've noted, slight differences.

For beginners, Grand Prixs always had chrome tipped forks. I don't think that color scheme fits '77, '76 Grand Prixs though may be reminiscent (seat tube). Description says "steel double-butted tubing", meaning?


Great vintage steel double butted tubing. Nice condition well preserved. Always stored indoors
Call for appt
https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/bik/5769544995.html

In turn, the same seller is selling a Red Raleigh, same sort of a deal, slight variations, saddles on both are nice, appear to be leather.:


https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/bik/5769540728.html
Nice clean vintage road bike. All steel double butted tubing. Red paint in excellent cond. Tires holding air. Always stored indoors.. no rust nice bike call for appt
Raleighs for the UK market I surmise, not the usual American fair so in that vein, unique.

If I'm totally wrong and these are Raleigh Records for example, my apologies for misleading.

I don't think one can find a picture of a US Raleigh Grand Prix that would match these.

-------------

'77 Raleigh Record, discernible differences.

Brake cabling set up is correct, it's the reverse in England I've heard.

Aw man, this one is right in my wheelhouse. The price seems steep, until you try to build one up from the frame. Then it's a bargain! The only downside for me, and the reason I'm not a buyer for this bike, is I'd be missing out on the build part of the program.

I'm eyeing that Allegro too. I could pick it up on the way to or from work tomorrow. But my build queue is full for the winter, and I've spent all my money buying parts. Next year, I've got to put some cash away for this end-of-season "garage clearance" thing...

You're probably the one getting all the good bikes that have been on there lately, I know Friday, that Garlatti frame went up in the parts section, that was pretty good, my friend had a similar one. Then, about 3 weeks ago, some sort of Stella was for sale in Hastings, that was up for awhile but now isn't. Both of these looked interesting.

For a woman, there is a nice small "Browning" brand (Browning as in the gun makers) Belgium made Green Mixte, that'd be nice for a woman or other.

I'm not really in the market, but I do continue to look; something might get my interest.

I sure do enjoy just looking at all the different kinds of Japanese bike boom bikes; I worked in a shop for a few years and I also once went to the library and looked at a whole lot of bicycling magazines from the 1970s and posted a lot of ads to a discussion group just on Japanese bikes, pretty fascinating.
Here's an Azuki:

Azuki 5 Speed Cruiser

I don't know anything about the rest of the bike but that headbadge is nice.

Though many of the products wouldn't ring bells with this crowd here, there's quite a few bikes over there now.

I've ridden the bike the whole winter before, maybe some use of the bus; but so it goes.

Not Guilty, yer honor!

I've watched those go by as well, wishing for more cash and more space in the shop. We seem to have a rich vein of C&V bicycles here in the Twin Cities, and a lot of them tend to show up here at the end of the riding season for very attractive prices.

But I'm building one very special bicycle this winter, and depending on how that rides, I may be cutting loose one or two of my other creations come Spring. If it doesn't turn out the way I expect it to, then I'll sell the frame and look for something with a more tour-oriented geometry, and the whole process will begin anew next Winter.

What a fascinating hobby!

Well, it's in my garage! And no brass screws drilled through it! It's actually in very good shape. The stock 27" wheels have been switched for 700c. Just need to replace the handlbar/stem/shifter/brake lever setup, and it's a rider.

Picked this up in Riverside yesterday for 150. Sorry for the bad picture.

1984 Raleigh Super Course. Shimano Golden Arrow.

I will replace the usual stuff, but I think I got a good deal. Paint is in great shape. Little rust.

As when they sold new, always a 'bang' for the buck. Can't get over how low price these are, TA Specialites crank. This one looks original.

Late 70's Viscount Trusty 56 vintage English road bike
Late 70's Viscount Trusty 56 vintage English road bike - $71 (santa cruz)

More of a collectors quirky English bike than an every day steed.

All original except tires. Very good unrestored condition. Very little wear on original drive train. Ok white paint with blue highlights.

56 w/ 57tt large frame best for ~5'10 to 6'1"

Shimano derailleurs, Titlist r and thunderbird front. Proprietary viscount crankset, hubs, stem and bars.

Nice 27" wheelset nisi rims, high flange viscount hubs

If you plan to ride, I have some tires that will hold up better. The fork is aluminum and not the strongest. Good for tooling around town but don't recommend high speed extended descents or off road abuse.

Viscount Lambert was an English aeronautical engineering company that gave a shot at making bicycles.

Open to offers and trades in bicycles and sporting goods.

Have another in a larger size if you are interested.

For the weight of it, doubtful a racer but this thing is sweet! Cassette slider shift, front and rear drums. Put some rubber and pedals on it and ride~

A motor on a bike like this is 'smoking'! Post war struggles and shortages, I would imagine this thing was a utility machine and helpful for household budgeting.

It was listed at $500 if I recall correctly, presumably it sold for that price as well. Quite a deal in my opinion.
