To get right to the matter:
I have one announcement and two questions...
My name is jeroen and I live in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Repairing, remodelling, restoring and riding bicycles has been more than a hobby for as long as I can remember. Currently, I’m working on an old Raleigh road bicycle. So far the announcement😉
Q1: Can anyone tell me anything about the authenticity of this bike. Is this the real deal? Is it special or maybe rare? All I have are the pictures attached.
Q2: I’m entertaining the idea of changing the blue to black. I believe the black and creamy white combines very nicely with the red and yellow bands from the decals. (The resemblance to the German national flag is a minor outcome and coincidental).
So change blue to black, yes or no?
Thanks for any replies
