Falcon frame and fork, 20 1/4″

A highly compliant frame which is very comfortable to ride. I suspect this is about 40 years old. There’s a bit of missing paint here and there but the metal is stable with no serious corrosion. The rear spacing reset to 130mm, for modern wheels. It has British BB shell so you can build it up with a modern BB. Lovely vintage features, heaps of clearance, and distinctive chromed fork. Good for an all-day-pootling bike or winter hack.

SOLD – 26 1 3/8″ (590mm) aluminium rimmed single speed wheelset

Improve the performance of your Raleigh roadster. This wheelset is the traditional roadster size but with aluminium rims for improved braking and lower turning mass (meaning quicker acceleration). As these are exactly the same size wheels as found on Raleigh roadsters and similar vintage bikes, they are a direct replacement for steel rimmed wheels and they’ll work with the brakes you’ve got.

Features

  • threaded hub for screw on freewheel
  • rear wheel undished – ideal for a single speed freewheel
  • 116mm OLN rear spacing (adjustable with spacers)
  • 100mm OLN front spacing
  • nutted axles

Includes

  • front and rear wheels
  • tyres
  • inner tubes
