Lovely GB engraved map of Great Britain handlebars that have a very classic flare and 3t record aero stem. Brooks expert saddle that needs restore, however a terrific candidate for bring back. Georgeous bike, clean campy, a head turner. But paint and chrome have "patina". Bike is not a museum program piece, however a rider. Has a little damage in the top that that somebody tried to repaint and bondo(see pictures). And brake levers need hoods. Bars could utilize gray cellophane or fabric tape too(currently has old blue fabric). Has stiff a blue label 27" rims instead of initial tubulars, but are constructed on original hubs. Less maintenence. I would enjoy to keep it, it is really a fantastic and beautiful riding bike, it is simply a bit(a lot) to big for me. Extremely comfy and quickly. Truly Raleigh's omage to fantastic Italian racing bikes. Great info like the fantastic victor fastback seat stay lug, the cc cutout bottom bracket, sharp lugs and sloping fork crown. Come take it for a ride and take pleasure in traditional craftsmanship and fantastic geometry! Toby.415-264-722zero.
