@ergillma, your sports is from the mid- or late-70's, as evidenced by the down tube logo font and the self-adjusting brake levers. If the rear hub says 69, then it has been upgraded, so to speak.

Just finished up reconditioning my '73 Raleigh Grand Sports. I wish I had taken some 'before' pictures because it was in pretty bad shape.

I am looking for some touch-up paint for my 74 Raleigh Sports. It is the dark green (metallic?) color. Does anyone know if there is a model paint color that is a close match? I

If you can't find a direct match, model paint is easy and cheap to mix a custom color.

This is my college Raleigh Grand Prix. Guessing 1969 or so. I'm ashamed I didn't take better care of it, as the paint is quite yucky, but I've gotten back into riding lately and so I've tried to fix it up. The rear derailleur crashed the spokes so I replaced it.

In fixing this up, I was amazed at how well the chromed parts held up. A few swipes with fine steel wool produced an amazing shine. Simple Green cleaning solution worked great for the 45 years worth of gunked up chain and sprockets. Replaced all the cables and just recently replaced the seat with a honey Brooks to match the cork grips.

Really enjoy the ride!

I had so much fun fixing up the above Gran Prix, I stumbled on a 73 Raleigh Record Mixte (?) that I insisted my sister get. Turned out this was the exact model she had in college freshman year that got stolen the first week. For $50 I figured there wasn't much downside, but it was in pretty good shape. Replaced brake levers, handlebar, cables, tires etc and this one cleaned up nicely as well!

Here's my 1987 Raleigh Mountain Tour Teton. It's definitely not the best bike in this thread but it gets me around comfortably with no issues. I'll be getting a 1983 Blackburn rack for it in the mail soon.

I'd love to do a drop bar conversion but I don't have the money, and I feel like I'd probably mess it up anyway.







It's the only bike I have, so I hope it lasts a while!

Well done! Whatever the 'before', the 'after' is right up my alley.

Here is my 1971 Raleigh Pro track bike. I raced it last year. I haven't ridden it once this year.

Not original. I bought it last year as a frameset.

That is a bike that has to be seen in person to fully appreciate how nice it is. The saddle is one of the nicest old Brooks I've seen. Perfect color.

Sweetness, Tom. I'm a sucker for Raleighs. Will have to finish up a couple tweaks and take pictures of mine for the thread.

Raleigh must have released this bike under a few different names. I acquired a Rudge exactly like this one cept the Colour and badges.

Mine is certainly not in mint condition like that Raleigh. A stunning bike there daf1009 !
