Raleigh Record Ace 12 (1984)

I originally bought this tatty example to ride to ruin, but it is now having a full professional re-spray back to original (although only the earlier transfers are available as on my 1983 Raleigh Record Aces) I am planning to rebuild this as a traditional fixed wheel clubman type machine, similar to those ridden in the 50s and 60s, I will post more pics when it is finnished

Yes I ran into a couple of problems, transfers are copies of the previous years as model and the 7 speed block would not run in the frame so finally built as 12 speed indexed, it has sat un ridden in my sons bedroom waiting for him to grow a bit since building a year ago now

Ha ha,I ran into the same prob with my Romani resto-lack of proper transfers,so it lingers in the land of patina. I'm going to attempt making them myself someday. Meanwhile,everything works and it's great fun. Indexted shifting-does that mean no more downtube shifters?

The fixed plan changed whilst I was awaiting the return from re-spray, my 12 year old son now shares my passion for the Raleigh Record Ace, he is now learning to ride my 22.5 inch, whilst this is now being built as a 14 speed indexed and looking good, more pics to follow....
