Raleigh Professional 55cm

Lovely top-of-the-line offering from Raleigh.

rptl$_57

A rare opportunity to own a classic English racing bike. Size is 21/ 1/2″ (55cm).

The frame and fork are Reynolds 531 double butted tubing. The componentry is Campagnolo Nuovo Record gruppo, with some Super Record additions.

No corners have been cut and there are no issues of any kind with the bike. Frame has no dings or dents, just scratches typical of a bike almost 40 years old. All bearings have been repacked. All replacement parts are OEM (or better), including cables.

The wheels include the original 36 hole low flange Campagnolo hubs (Super Record). They are true and round. New Bontrager top-of-the-line clincher tires.

The saddle is the Brooks Team Pro.

The pedals (usually not included) are Campagnolo Super Record, with straps and cages.

The freewheel was replaced with a vintage Dura Ace for lower gears and reliability.

Includes original Silca frame pump.

This is one of the last Professional framesets to come out of the English factory.

Many, many extras available, including bar and stem combinations (original Raleigh and original TTT). Currently pictured with Cinelli 110mm and 42cm bars.
