Hello and Welcome, My brother-in-law called one day to tell me about this Raleigh he spotted at a Thrift Store 30 miles from here. It sounded promising. I called the store and talked the manager into holding it for me. When I saw it I was excited. What a find! a 1980`s Raleigh Technium 460 in original condition. It was a little grimy and appeared to have been stored for a long time. But over all, it looked great!

If you don`t, it will fuse itself to the hub and you will have a "hell of a time" trying to remove it. On this one, The wheel felt like it was going to fold under the pressure. I ended up servicing it (including the bearings) with the free-wheel in place. And that was a major pain in the A##.
On that Happy note (: I`m going to wrap it up for today. Until next time RIDE SAFE and remember to Always RESCUE, RESTORE & RECYCLE
