Vic's Raleigh Fixie

Raleigh Fixie
This is my 1972 Raleigh Gran Prix fixed gear conversion. It has gone through several modifications since the initial build. I liked Paul's components and have been eager to use more of them in a build. Now in addition to the Paule's Racer brake and Love lever this bike features Paul's Crank and Hubs, Velocity B43 rims (wheels built by me and approved by the famous Perry) , Nitto Lugged Stem, Nitto riser bar, Ouri grips. with a half dozen fine bicycles to choose from (including 2 Rivendells and a Heron) this has become my favorite and most ridden bike.
