here's one of mine. had it for a while, and wanted to wait until i had the bars and stem i really want, and the 36h hubs for the rims i really want to use, but i got sick of waiting so i built it up with what was on hand:

78 raleigh team ti pro with 9s record, 7s chorus brakes and crankset.

cables still need trimming, and i know, big dog, crank angle, valves etc. rules schmules. it's a pic of a bike leaning on a shrub. get over it. 8)

big thanks to dayne the main vein for this build, as he sold me the frame and put me onto the groupset.

Few pics of my '74 Raleigh Sport.
Original wheels were heavy and slow, and I'm not a fan of coaster brakes. On there now is the $50 wheelset that Reid was flogging recently (no expense spared!).
Saddle is the original 1974 Brooks, it's deteriorating pretty rapidly though.
This bike is my weekender.

Flying Girl??????

I recently stumbled across this old boys bike... I believe it may be a Raleigh "Flying Girl". It looks as though an owner at some stage has taken offense to having "girl" written on a boys bike and has tried to remove the offending word. The only information I have found with anything that looks similar is at:

http://www.oldbike.eu/museum/1910-2/1910s-boys-raleigh-the-flying-girl/

The bike is in pretty poor condition :(

If anybody can confirm the identity or provide further information that would be fantasttic as I have had litle luck at this stage.

Cheers!
