Raleigh Competition 1969
This is a fun 1969 Raleigh Competition. I got this missing it’s wheels and in pretty rough shape. The frame is made with Reynolds 531 double butted tubing and joined together with Nervex pro chrome plated lugs. The drop outs, and cranks are Zeus.
For the handlebars I did white cotton tape with natural hemp twine to finish it. Then I did a crosshatch pattern of green twine. There’s about 15 layers of flake amber shellac as the protective coating.
