Hi Folks!

I have decided to sell the only bike in my collection that I can't ride. It's a c.1958 Raleigh Lenton Grand Prix, size 23.5" It was a project bike that I picked up at the local bike library because it was the same model that I rode at 14 as my very first road bike. Of course I was shorter at 14 than I am now and the bike will not fit me.

Sadly, I have neither the time, nor the inclination to restore it at this time and I hope that someone else in the group can bring her back to life. She is in rough shape but almost completely intact with the exception of the rear rim, which was replaced at some point with a Super Champion Mod. 58. The left shifter is also broken, but I've seen them show up occasionally on eBay.

I would like to get out of it what I paid - $150 + shipping but I am open to reasonable offers as well.

Feel free to contact me with any questions. I have created an album of photos at http://tinyurl.com/lgk7z2
