RALEIGH Gran Sport, c.1975

RALEIGH Gran Sport, c.1975

All original White with Lagoon Blue enamel and gold headlug lining. Original Raleigh and Carlton transfers. Reynolds 531 butted main tubes and fork blades. Chrome on fork and stay ends is flawless.

Wheels are Normandy Sport hubs with Simplex skewers and Weinmann clincher 27" rims. Tires are modern Kenda 27" x 1.25" whitewalls. GB stem and Randonneur handlebar and the bar tape is old Hunt-Wilde vinyl. Dia-Compe #204 brake levers with white hoods have replaced the original Weinmann levers with white Carlton hoods. Brake calipers are Weinmann Vainqueur 999 model 750 center-pull. Stronglight model 93 crankset and bottom bracket with Lyotard 460 pedals. Simplex Prestige rear derailleur and Simplex chromed steel downtube shifters, but the original Simplex front derailleur is now a Huret 700. Seatpost is a Campagnolo two-bolt and the saddle simply marked San Marco is padded white suede on a plastic shell and with chrome rails - probably from the 1980s. Frame pump is an old Silca and the bottle cage and bottle are modern and inexpensive.

This was a middle tier bike, the lowest among the Raleighs to offer Reynolds tubing. With high brake bridge clearance this was intended to use both the clincher tires and even mudguards - which I will add soon. It was intended as a comfortable riding high quality recreational Sport Touring bike - not a "racer", and could be compared to a lower range "International". Really a great riding bike thanks to the long wheelbase. And, I think the color combination is one of the nicest Raleigh or any one has ever come up with.

Raleigh bikes print and multimedia creative from the late 1990s.

I preferred the wall mounted prototype for the CDi-based Raleigh Interactive point-of-sale system, but it was the mobile floor standing model that proved most popular and was eventually made available to UK retailers. Both models were used here at Raleigh's annual product launch in Harrogate in 1996.
