Rally ‘round the Raleighs

Raleigh Gran SportFlickr user Wright38 is refurbishing a 1961 Raleigh Gran Sport, carefully documenting the piece-by-piece teardown of its Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleurs, the GB Coureur 66 centerpulls, and a really beautiful GB Spearpoint lugged stem.

He’s also located an original Gran Sport catalogue from 1962, focusing on the bike’s “race-ace” features and fittings.
