New guy from SW Ontario

Hey all,

Picked up my first road bike last fall at a local police auction, a red Raleigh Grand Prix. I can't seem to find much info on it online (the 'Racing USA' model with chrome forks seems to be crowding all the results) but based on the serial number I believe it is a 1985 Canadian model.

At any rate, she's in good nick, rides smooth (after some new consumables and a tune up) and I think a good steed to get my feet wet in the world of cycling.

- Bobby

Welcome to Bike Forums!

The members in our Classic & Vintage forum would like to see that bike. But, please turn in around first so they can see the drive side of it.
