    1986 Pennine Italia, made in Bradford, mostly with Campagnolo Victory and Record Bits. In need of new saddle, white hoods and tan tyres.

    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.

    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 SS

    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! 🙂

    Did the Record Sprint have the gold levers, brake blocks, cranks & chain set? That’d be the same as my Falcon Grand Prix above??

    I did done research after I got the bike – I believe the original record sprint had gold chain/ cranks etc

    Mine is a later modal and does not unfortunately. Still not bad for nowt!

    A Raleigh Record Sprint was my first ‘proper’ road bike too. I think the gold brakes, black rims etc were Weinmann? Mine was always a bit too big for me but I did loads of miles on it as a young teenager. Happy days.

    Love the DM Concorde YoKaiser, at some point I’ll get one 8)

    The Ribble, Yates, Bird and Shorter bring back memories of the early days of racing.

    That Concorde is making me slightly aroused… but I’m happy with my Diamant.

    First ride today. Well chuffed.

    Old roadies rock!

    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.

    Lovely Colnago that – and I love the two bemused cake serving people looking bemused in the window!

    Liking that Raleigh’s retro paint work, Steve!

    Keep ’em coming dudes!

    This one’s pretty classic 🙂

    Did a century on it around Wester Ross a couple of months ago

    Cheers, not had the Colnago long. It’s a 1998 C94 original apart from the Tyres , seat and bar tape that I picked up for a bargain price of 150.

    While we’re here can anyone produce a seat tube sticker for my bike up there.
    It’s an E W Hannington. I would like E W H in red white and blue. It never had down tube transfers.

    853 – not a lot of spring in this steel. Stem’s flipped now.

    Loverly steel with campy. I’ve changed the wheels to clincher from tub and it’s been great
