1975 Raleigh Grand Prix Carmine Red/Black

Here is a great example of a vintage bike that was affordable and lightweight.  The Grand Prix was right above the Record so just one step above their lowest priced road bike.  Quite a good-looking bike for the price.  Check out these pictures:

Above bike is the 23 1/2″ size. I don’t believe the saddle is stock and it did not come stock with fenders. It would however have had tires like the catalog image.

  1. 👌👌👌when I was little so in our region there was a Race of peace. Even then, I didn’t understand how a seemingly fragile structure could carry the weight of those huge guys.
