A Raleigh Elan from 1990, restored by myself (as near to 'factory setting' as possible).

23.5" (580mm c-c) with a 565mm toptube (c-c) so suit someone around 5'10".

Reynolds 501 steel tubing with Shimano Exage groupset (except downtube shifters which are 105). Top of its range when it was new.

All bearings replaced, new chain, cassette, brake and gear cables (inners and outers), brakeblocks, seatbolt, bartape, tyres, tubes and toeclips. Even recreated the graphics and had replacement decals printed. Serviced the pedals and wheels, and replaced the hoods and saddle with retro parts in good condition. Original Raleigh bottle cage. Wheels (grey Alesa rims on Shimano hubs) are smooth and true with loads of braking surface.

Perfect for that Eroica event, or would make someone a cheap training bike, a nice commuter or fit some skinny mudguards and it’s a Winter bike. Sweet as a nut and rides like a sewing machine. By all means PM me with any Qs, or if you want more details and better pictures.


23.5" (58cm c-c)
Light use, some superficial damage
