18,743 • I just finished my Raleigh Triathlon, brought back from the dead. I’m pleased with the results after 10 months work on and off.

It started with an eBay purchase of the 531 frame which clearly had a hard life as a winter trainer. Now re-enamelled in powder blue, fitted with high end Campag Record running gear, KMS chain, MKS track pedals and half toe clips, Deda bars and stem, Dia Compe Gran Compe levers, Espresso wheels, and finished the the best of British Brooks honey leather. Decals are from a 1982 Raleigh Competition, but seemed more fitting that the late 80s Triathlon designs.

It’s a joy to ride, and even better to look at….
