It is definitely tighter on the Raleigh, and build quality is better also. Cheers!

How did you repaint this frame and how much did it cost you? Done professionally? I kinda want to do the same to mine (I have the exact same frame as you, it looks like)

I sandblasted the frame and then primed and painted, sanding very lightly in between. I did it all myself. Cheers!
