While I love the look of these bikes, the sight of giant chain rings and tiny cassettes is reminding me of why I was ecstatic when mtbs appeared. I was able to leave the 10spd BSA in the shed and ride off with 18 gears! I don’t think I ever got on the big ring on the Beezer and wasn’t too bothered when my ex-wife sneakily sold it after we split up.Posted 4 years agogrievoustimMember
I’ve recently taken possession of an 80s Raleigh record sprint – my neighbour left it out in the street (so someone could take it if they wanted it)
It’s missing the saddle and seatpost but is all present and correct apart from that
Can’t decide if I’m going to run it geared or as a SSPosted 4 years agofandangoMember
I really wanted a Raleigh Record Sprint… black with gold decals IIRC. And doesn’t it have a Space shuttle outline on it somewhere? I ended up with a Scirocco, the first bike I bought with my own money. The Scirocco still lives at my parents’ place, and I think after reading this thread, I may try and resurrect it! 🙂Posted 4 years agostevestuntsMember
Mam’s bike, now consigned to the turbo following dual wrist snapping a few years back. Poor photo I’m afraid. And that’s a replacement saddle sitting on top of the attached saddle; she doesn’t have a backwards arse.
Don’t have any pictures, but fatha has a couple of custom Dave Yates not unlike the one pictured elsewhere. Two are built up (winter training bike / winter singlespeed bike) and one frame idling where he thinks I won’t find it.Posted 4 years ago
