The photos will speak for themselves here. Battered frame with some original Campag parts.
This was outside for the better part of 18 months. Finally stripped it down to see what's going on.
Raleigh Rapide 531 62cm / 24.5" frame.
The frame is light and sturdy but it's clearly seen better days.
- Headset cups are stuck.
- Dent in the top tube from where I had to lever the forks off - the bars pushed against the tube.
- Seatpost clamp is pretty gnarly from where I used a random nut and bolt.
- Rust / Scratches galore
The BB came out easily enough, so you should be able to get another one in.
-Non original forks. 1” steerer length 22.7cm
-Campagnolo Chorus 10-speed Crankset 52/39, 172.5 arm length
-Selle Royale Sakae Custom Road Champion Drop Bars 41cm / 25.4mm clamp
