All Gold

Hello, everyone.

I'm the owner of a 1972 Raleigh "All Gold Edition." I purchased it in less that great condition, and, not knowing what it is, treated it like any other bicycle. I rode it hard and tough, leading to a few more scratches and dents than was the case when I purchased it from a 106 year old bike shop basement. Curiosity and the popularity explosion that Raleigh bicycles experienced here in the Queen City led me to explore the bike that stood alone. In all the classic Raleighs I had seen, none were gold. I took it a step further to find that my serial number didn't fit with the "standard" serial number configurations I could find. Any tips for restoration or direction to shops or parts stores would be a huge help. I'd also be happy to post some photos of the bike, though they'd be less than impressive and would be a bit shameful on my part. It's a beautiful bike which I'm proud of riding and would like to make it a bike anyone would be jealous of seeing.

Welcome Bradley. The folks in the Classic & Vintage forum can help.
