Raleigh Portage Touring Bike Needs Work

$200.00 plus shipping.
GREAT BIKE to fix and ride or flip. BUT, yes, it needs work (see below).

As you know, if you are into such things, the Portage was billed as Raleigh's top of the line Touring Bike and I think it was the first with "off road wheels." Amazing frame with full braze-ons and then some. Gruppo and accessories were near top of the line (for the time).
Purchased new for about $600.00, back in 1983 or 1984.

Selling "as is." I put this away when I stopped riding drop handlebars.
My height is 5' 9" and 31" inseam.

Not ridden much. Not ridden at all for 24 years - stored in the home.

Problems: obviously needs tires and tubes, lube, maybe cables. One side of the top tube and decal was scuffed during storage (see photo). The rear rack is missing.

This is a world-class, famous vintage bicycle. Fairly rare. Great ride. Great for loaded touring, off-road touring, camping touring, or just riding around town. Probably not a bad Bug-Out Bike. I planned to hybridize it with upright handlebars, but the heck with that, I need a camera tripod :-)








Check it out.

The Portage has sold for the asked for price. Is it customary to delete the thread? Or will it have some historical interest :-) Just let me know. Thanks.
