Craigslist Rare Bike Find – 1973 Raleigh RRA (Raleigh Record Ace)

Posted by on in Bike Hunting/Finds


I found this 1973 Raleigh RRA (Raleigh Record Ace) on Craigslist. It has a Reynolds 531 steel frame and fork, Simplex Super LJ derailleurs, Stronglight crankset, high flange Maillard 700 Professional Team Issue hubs and AVA tubular rims, Brooks Professional Saddle. It has a Carlton Race Proved decal and came out of the Worksop factory. It seems to be a fairly rare bike and on par with the Raleigh International. I bought it from the original owner.

* Yes, I know Reynolds 531 is steel and not aluminum. That is just what the ad said!
