'73 raleigh carlton super course tt

came across this beauty tossed in an alley with a sign that said "please take me"...so i did. luckily i grabbed it right before a junker truck rolled through or it would have been scrapped to the steel gods. i took it in and polished every part (unfortunately forgetting to take pictures of how rusty and beat up it looked) and then found the correct derailleurs/shifters on cl for $25 to finish out the build (it had been converted to singlespeed). everything is stock except the mavic open pros that were on it and im ok with that. i gave it a classy bar wrap and finished it with some wine corks from bottles i had recently finished :)
