1989 Raleigh Caprice | Pub Bike Check

by 0

As we’re accelerating into a world of carbon, titanium, carbotanium and electric components, I’d like to wind the clock back and introduce you to my new-old pub bike.

This 1979 Raleigh Caprice is what you might call a shed find. Although, it wasn’t lost, and it was in a leaky garage. It belonged to my mum and for as far back as I can remember it has stood still, on its little kick stand, with a rusty SwingBall leaning against it and a pile of gardening equipment in the basket.
