I slung a few tires over my shoulder that I'd been meaning to donate and headed over on my Schwinn three-speed. I got there a couple minutes before noon. There were already plenty of people in the sale space. I didn't see any complete bikes, but this most-of-a-Raleigh-Competition followed me home. I bought it mostly for the parts (Brooks B-17, first gen Dura-Ace brakes, TA crank, SunTour barcons, Huret Jubilee front derailleur). Its only blemish appears to be a small dent in the top tube. I haven't any idea what I'll do with it yet.



I also picked up a small assortment of derailleurs (Huret Jubilee rear, Pat 73 Campy NR rear, Simplex Super LJ front). I wonder if the Huret came off the Raleigh?



I thought perhaps the Raleigh was already claimed by someone as it was off to the side, not with the other frames (mostly cheap fixie stuff it seemed). I worked my way around and grabbed the derailleurs, then came back to the Raleigh. It had no price and I didn't have a ton of cash, but I grabbed it and walked over to the cashier. She said, "$100," and had a credit card slider attached to a smartphone, so I grabbed it too.

I left plenty of deals for other people. Stuff I remember: a Pat 81 Campy SR ($50), a third gen Campy Rally ($100), a tubular front wheel with Gipiemme hub and maybe Mavic rim, etc.

Glad you found good stuff, Skip, and it makes me glad to know the frame is going to a good home. That Jubilee did come off the Raleigh. Someone took it off with the intention to sell it on eBay, which never actually happened.

I seem to remember something strange going on with the fork. Pinholes in the brazing and the steerer tube maybe not inserted into the crown with the utmost care. Iím not a Raleigh expert but I think of that frame when people talk about the era of bikes being built after a pint or four.

I wasnít involved with the planningóbut I showed up at 3 and was surprised by how much good stuff we (still) had. Who knew we had all these cool old parts?
