lol, worth about 10% of that, imo. i think you're getting your 2-stars and your 5-stars mixed up. you can buy a complete original 5-star on ebay right now for around $1200..

I would prefer Silverlight's 4 Star. And it does have a leather seat.
The familiar brick wall used as a backdrop is missing from this set of shots from Mario.

It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Another one in Sydders. Ricardo. Nice specs, but daddy-long-legs only. TG he refrained from 'painting' it.
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

The opening sentence says ....magnifique , then latter it says ... Attentione :?
Its probably warning us that they may snap in two upon use.

Typical mid-80's bike boom ride, but probably not worth the start or BIN price.

Very clean though. Not worth that much, but still not too bad looking IMO. Maybe at half the price or a little less.

But are the breaks broken? :|

But more seriously, this Raleigh is calling to me like the Sirens on the Lorelei Rocks. And it's in Sydney. Can anyone opine whether they can see a possible stress misalignment on the TT, up the head-tube end? [Pic 7]. I imagine one or two others here may be interested as well. I thought these were d/butted 531, but don't see the familiar stickers.

A sneaking suspicion confirmed. Thanks munga. Sirens calls fading... A different beast to pentlandexile's; after looking again.

Did you ever hear anything on your stolen Raleigh?

record, competition, professional.
grand prix, europa.

top shelf, and
bottom shelf.

having said that, there's nothing wrong with a europa. it's still a cool looking bike.
