1977 SB1861 Reynolds 531
SB1861 is towards the end of 1977 and is one of the last with what I call the pre 1978 livery. The ‘Team Raleigh’ on the top tube changed soon after this to simply say ‘TEAM’. It is built with Reynolds 531 Double Butted tubing and has the classic SBDU over size seat stay caps. This bike is in original condition with not just original paint but also original parts. I’m preserving this with as many original parts as possible. Sadly some parts like tyres and brake lever hoods are too far gone and need to be replaced.
