Welcome to the sale of this lovely Raleigh Zenith, perfect blend of beauty and speed. It spent most of its life in a garage,unused hence exceptionally good condition. All decals are still intact and there are only some odd scratches on the beautiful light green paintwork. Very rare find! Attention to detail is amazing, as a proper classic bike. So nice. It could look lovely and innocent but mechanically it is a killer. Lightweight Reynolds 501 frame. Sharp Weinmann Alpha brakes. Suntour shifting. Double alloy crank set. Alloy pedals. Weinmann Alloy rims made in Belgium. Alloy rear rack made in Switzerland. Bike of exceptional quality and craftmanship. The condition of the bike is excellent. All bearings running smooth and with no play. Rims true. Drive train in excellent condition. Bad points? Some wear on the top of the saddle as you can see from the pictures. Overall it is in amazing condition for age. The bike is and feels very light. It is super fast and the double crank set provides a very sensible gearing so you can climb any hill. Quite convenient as well due to the mudguards and comfy saddle. It is a very invigorating machine and it begs to be ridden hard, so you will find yourself cruising London at speed! 21" size. Would fit people from 5ft5" to 5ft 9". All in all, a great vintage bike. Good looking, fast and in excellent condition.
