Raleigh Trent Sports

Bought in 2014 at a local auctioneer’s Tour De France Grand Depart auction I’ve rebuilt this with a mix of original and replacement parts. Wheels have the original Sturmey Archer FM 4 speed hub, a NOS Dynohub but have been rebuilt with Ryde Sputnik alloy rims. Some 1980 Weinmann centre pull brakes have bought the braking a little more up to date and a NOS Nicklin chainset with Williams chainring has been fitted with some Sturmey Archer pedals and toeclips to match up with the hubs. Alloy bars, stem and seatpost have saved a little weight but I still think it needs a “Two Man Lift” warning on the top tube!
