Hello everyone, basically I don't ride any more except on my recumbent bicycle as both my knees are shot (2 surgeries) and I'm 63. I have rode in the Scottish Milk Race (IN MY YOUTH) and have toured all over Europe in my 1975 Raleigh International. I have had a Tommasini SP as well, which I gave to my son. I am restoring my Raleigh to original components and will be restoring vintage bikes in my retirement. Presently in SOCAL but will be retiring to Puget Sound to work on my bikes. I hope this site is good for parts.

THX

Keith

Welcome aboard from another Raleigh International fan, and former owner of one. I'd enjoy reading about your past experiences in racing and touring. Post some in the C&V and the Touring Forums when you get time, pictures are a must too.
