    Raleigh Rapide project

    I received this Raleigh Rapide as a Christmas gift from the gf, I was originally going to buy it from her brother so I could fix it up and use it as my commuter, but she surprised me with it.

    I don't know much about the bike, other than it's a lower end model, the wheels are secured by bolts, not qr skewers.

    Without further ado







    Religion. It's given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.

    I don't plan on doing much, just updating most of the parts, drivetrain, brakes, cables, wheels, saddle and wider bars, nothing too fancy just parts I find on cl for a decent price. I already picked up a set of Alex R500 wheels, slightly use but in perfect condition for $50, will most likely wrap them in Gators.





    Tomorrow I plan on stripping most of the bike and filling the dropouts on the fork to accommodate the larger axel/skewer if needed.
