Wow mate looks like they did a top job you must be stoked. I’m really looking forward to this resto you’ve really done your homework on the spec. This is the 1st resto of its kind, awesome.

Looks great so far, what Raleigh decals are you going for?

Are the decals going to be exactly as shown or would you change the blue for black/chrome to compliment the build?

Thought it was time I did a update on progress, I decided not to use the original gold maxycross I bought because they was to good to strip so I bought these faded gold crank set to have done black, so these and the seat post are still being annodised and will be back shortly, I had the 7x hoops done and there back so when I got the shiny sides done and built I post some more pics up later
