A QUARTET OF RALEIGHS
It was Raining Raleighs in Florida the winter of 1997-8. The Mixte framed Record Ace was set out with the garbage on Terre Ceia Is. where it was rescued by a friend. I traded an overhaul of his 10 speed for it. It was scruffy with accumulated dirt and oil and the paint was indifferent but in good mechanical condition. I have done nothing to it but install a new seat and clean it up. It is light and fast.
The Grand Prix was bought at a bazaar. It is well equipped with a computer, flic stand (I love em'), bottle cage, underseat bag and a neat mirror that is part of the brake lever. The dealer sticker shows that it was sold in Ithaca, NY. just 50 miles from my home. I have done nothing to it, not even an adjustment or cleaning. I rode it once on a fast 5 mile ride and everything worked perfectly. A good Raleigh bike.
The man's Sports was bought at a garage sale and is in fair cosmetic condition and rides very well as do most Sports regardless of their appearance.
The ladies Sports was found at a garage sale and is in rough condition . All I can say is that it is all there and needs some TLC.
