Yesterday I finally got around to checking out an old Canadian Raleigh, 10 speed road bike, that was given to me quite some time ago. This bike had been out in the weather for YEARS and I ended up salvaging only a handful of parts. The frame was an old cottered crank frame with tons of rust...... all the bearings were bad, wheels shot.......... I ended up with the front fork and head set, the brakes, and the head badge. I absolutely LOVE those old Raleigh head badges! That was my "pearl in the oyster" from this bike.

Love those old Raleighs!
