Probably about that. I'm no snob, but it is from quite a depressing point in Raleigh's existence, so it might be changed before the event if something becomes available. It's really, really crudely built but I like it.
I wanted to put my Karrimor front rack on it, but no dice, it doesn't have eyelets. I'm going to use that basket support to mount some sort of platform or basket, not sure what though. Any ideas for suitable items within my budget of nothing?
It's almost identical to my Raleigh Maverick frame, it's junkiness is, for me, its appeal
That said, it's the smoothest running bike I have. No idea what it is, but it doesn't clatter and bang like my other bikes, it just purrs along like it's made of silk. Strange really.
But glad to see there's another convert to re-using old MTB frames for new purposes We can blame Hubbers for that
