The replacement Raleigh Competition

Replacement Raleigh 07

This is a neat story with crappy beginning and a great ending. We had a gentleman come in with a mangled Raleigh Competition. Apparently it fell off of his roof rack and a Ford Explorer ran it over. He bought the bike new and really didn’t want any other bike since he loved the ride quality of his old Raleigh. It just so happened that I had virtually the same frame in the same color and same size at my warehouse! It’s not everyday you can walk into a bike shop and order up a 70′s Raleigh Competition.

I saved as many parts as I could from his old bike which wasn’t too many and then set out to built up his new frame. The old bike was a G.S. model with Campy G.S. parts and Weinmann brakes. Through this process I upgraded most parts to Campy Nuovo Record. Not only did he get his old bike back but it’s better than before. The customer was stoked to have his steed back and we were stoked that we could make it happen.
