Vintage Raleigh Esquire Mens 3 Speed Bike

Condition of frameset: Used - Acceptable

The BB and headset have had a full service and are in very good used condition. Both hubs run smoothly but the front rim has suffered from pitting of the chrome and could do with being replaced to improve the performance of the front brake (+ £30 for a new Alu 26x1 3/8" wheel). There was some rust on the BB shell, underside of the attached down tube, left hand fork leg, non-driveside seat stay and patches where the tyre has worn the paint on the chain stays. Most of it has been removed and protected with a layer of clear lacquer. The tyres are in good used condition (+£34 for a pair of Schwalbe Kevlar Delta Cruiser Tyres)
