This is cool. Note that it has been repaired/repainted, though purportedly nothing of the structural variety.

Raleigh Competition GS townie setup

We like this townie setup (reminds us of Sheldon Brown’s Competition “Superbe”), although that rear fender looks like it needs some help.

The frame size is 60cm (24 inches) with a Standover height of 35 inches. The bike is equipped with 700cm wheels with Campagnolo Record large flange hubs and new tires, Campagnolo Record down tube shifters and derailleurs, Campagnolo headset, Campagnolo crankset and bottom bracket, Weinmann quick release sidepull brakes with levers, aluminum seatpost, aluminum pedals, GB stem, rubber grips, aluminum fenders, rear rack and a Brooks leather saddle. The bike is silver with coordinating Raleigh Competition decals and in excellent condition. The bike steers and brakes properly and the wheels are straight and spin freely.

1973 Raleigh Competition

Nice, but overpriced, we think.


1973 Vintage Raleigh Competition 10 Speed – $700

Vintage Raleigh Competition 10 speed bicycle in great condition with absolutely no rust, just normal use scratches and wear. As near as I can tell, this is a 1973 model. The serial number is: A 2112. This bike has been sitting a garage for about 30 years. Every piece on the bike was carefully dissembled, cleaned and re-greased. Everything appears to be original (even the Brooks racing saddle) except for the late 70’s, early 80’s BullsEye sealed roller bearing hubs and possibly the rims, although they are Weinmann, same as would have originally come with the bike. The identical hubs alone recently sold for $300 on eBay, and would make this an especially good “rider” for anyone who wants to ride and appreciate this bike. If you want the bike shipped, we would have to work out the additional cost. $700 or trade for?

Vintage 1976 Raleigh Competition MK.II

This one’s BYOS (Bring Your Own Saddle).


Vintage 1976 Raleigh Competition MK.II Road Bicycle 22.5 – $650 (Brooklyn)

All original components, with the exception of the Rims and spokes which I had built onto the original hubs. These new wheels have only been ridden about 4 miles.

Everything is in working condition except the leather seat which is broken and most likely unrepairable and needs replacing.
