1984 Raleigh Racing R7000/24

Craigslist find.  Bought from former bike shop owner who used it as a "shop errand bike", i.e. Beer hauler..  He rebuilt wheels, with 4 cross spoke pattern and replaced the drive train. Bike is in okay condition with fair amount of surface rust on the chrome plating.  Probably not destined to be a "show pony" due to lack of demand, but will be used to accompany kids around the neighborhood, occasional pump track.. and who knows, maybe I'll venture out for a race or two when the new BMX track gets built.


Original :
frame 
floval forks
Suntour Stem
Tange headset
Dia-Comp MX brakes 
1-piece Sugino Cro-mo cranks
Normandy hubs, Stamped "77" (? confirmation?)

New:
Odi Grips
Tuf-Neck 41T chain-ring
Diamondback pedals
Weinmann Zac 21 rims
Kenda "Diamondback" branded tires
Elina-styled repro plastic seat

Bike is pictured with a Selle Italia Flight seat, from my 'cross bike.
