Picked this up on the way to work, the missus is going to kill me if she finds it!

it has some nice lugs. frame and forks are in good original condition and has a nice 'pruddy' raleigh head badge and also raleigh stamped into the frame. also has pretty cool looking 'bullet' guards.

it's 27 inch, has raleigh brakes that would polish up very nicely

the wheels and the chain are rusty probably throw away items.

i think this would be good for someone looking for parts, headbadge or wanting to do up a singlespeed, fixie or even in need of some matching forks for their project.

Hey Mate,

awesome! good news, i just picked it up from around the corner as there is a roadside collection on, i didn't really want it to be used as landfill if it could be used by someone else.

the paintwork on the frame and forks is in good condition, and it looks like quality metal and lugs have been used. if you wanted you wouldnt even need to paint it just run a wet soapy rag over it and build it up from there.

the photo was only a quick snap on the iphone as i was already late for work!

i'll flick you a pm with my mobile no.

Cheers Rob.

If you see more, just too good to go to land fill, you can drop them round here. I will add them to the freebees list: http://www.bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=11776

If you see more, just too good to go to land fill, whack it on eBay with 0.99c start, you may as well profit yourself

Not Shimano... You'll find it's a variation of one of these.....

80's SR (Sakae/Ringyo) 'Custom' cranksets[/url]

I've got a couple floating around, including a triple. Quite a stylish looking crankset, some of them. Chainrings completely incompatible with anything else though, and often rivetted to spider

Oh, interesting. I think it might have been the fluting on the crank arm itself which threw me. I did think it a little odd for a period ladies bike to have higher end cranks. 600 Eventually became Ultegra in the model range didn't it?

I suppose though they're all Japanese rip-offs of the European kit from a bit earlier.

And thanks for the tip on the chainrings - I won't go getting too excited about any of these SR cranks if I come across any. I've picked up, turned over and turfed on many a Sakae crank before, but not none in this style.

Don't quote me on that...... DOH! :shock: :roll:

If you check Sheldon's chart, you'll see a couple of 'obsolete' SR BCD's. Maybe worth keeping for spare rings and bolts. There are some SR chainring/ crank BCD's that aint on that chart ie. that large outer chainring above ^

SR also made common BCD cranksets also - don't go chucking them out!
