1978 Raleigh Record Ace

This mixte frame, 27 inch wheeled bike was rescued from the trash by my friend Randy in 1998. Randy's wife Marilyn needed a ladies 3 speed which I just happened to have. The trade was made and all were happy. I was surprised to learn that this bike was made in England. All of the components have the name "Raleigh" on them but are mostly of Suntour manufacture. There is a gold decal on the downtube that states that Raleigh won the world team championship in 1978. The bike is relatively light for its time and price, weighing in at 26 lbs. All the components are alloy except the wheels and rear wheel hub. The bike is in good condition except that the wheels are rusty. I have not ridden the bike in two years and then only briefly. I recently rode the bike and was surprised at how well it rode. It is a very nice riding bike.

I hope you enjoyed looking at this bike and I welcome your comments.
