Raleigh 1983 W Frame 60cm

This frame was built in the Nottingham Lightweight Unit in June of 1983. It’s a 60cm frame, made from Reynolds 531, and the frameset weighs 2.7kg.

Restored by Star Enamellers in 2015 with original Raleigh decals sourced from the UK. The paint is absolutely mint, with one very small chip in the front of the fork crown. This imperfection will be hidden by the front brake caliper when installed.

English BB and two bottle cage mounts. The dropouts are Gipiemme, with adjusters at the rear. All of the lugs feature lightweight cutouts, a signature of W frames.

The rear dropout spacing is currently set to 126mm, which is fine for 8 speed drivetrains. It can be cold-set to 130mm.
