Raleigh “GP” Single Speed

4 Dec

Vintage Raleigh Grand Prix from the early 80’s, this is a beautiful steel lugged frame with matching fork, frame set is made with Reynolds 531 tubing with nice lugs and pantographed fork crowns and seat tubes with the Raleigh logo, both rear drops are stamped Raleigh as are the fork tips and have braze ons for fenders and/or racks. Color is a light Teal with white graphics that are in great condition for its age, model is Grand Prix. Below is a list of new and lightly used components used to rebuild this hot rod.

 

Wheel set is a brand new pair of Weinmann DP18 Deep V’s Black with machined brake surface, laced to a pair of black, high flange Formula flip flop hubs with stainless spokes. Brand new velox rim tape, tubes and a pair of 700×25 Seca Serfas FPS pumped up to 120psi.

 

Drive train starts with new Shimano BB UN-54, 175 SR crank set pantographed Raleigh, with a Cannondale 46t chain ring, and 16t freewheel connected with a new KMC 3/32 chain.

 

Brake set consists of the original Diacompe “G” side pull brakes with NOS pads and wheel guides for that quick flip of the rear hub. New top bar inline brake pulls with new cables and housing.

Cockpit is a pair of SR road bars that have been flopped and chopped and wrapped with new gel tape, Technomic 60mm quill stem and a Laprade seat post and an older Specialized seat.

 

Great bike that has been carefully put together with very good quality new and used parts.
