Very nice. You can sell it along with the Bob Jackson, right? You're doing pretty good when it comes to high end British bikes. I know the bike came from Cupertino; is that where you are as well? If so, it has one heck of a landfill.

No,I live Sacramento.The Raleigh I picked up in Cool between Auburn and Placerville.Seller was disappointed with CL and he was going to dump it.And the Bob Jackson.Young kid told me he had four people ahead of me wanting to see bike.no shows.he told if he didn't sell he would park it and leave.So, My total investment is seating at 250 I may have paid to much for the Jaskson.Hmm

Stan's Cyclery was on my route as a sales rep in the early 80's, great to see the dealer sticker!
If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Wonderful find!

Thanks very much for posting.

Looks like one heck of a holiday there on the seat lug.

I have this same bike. Bought mine new in 1982 from Alameda Bicycles in Alameda, CA. Mine is silver like yours and is a 58cm. The original rims were replaced in 1984 with Araya rims. The rear der. I still have, but not on the bike. Has a NR on it now. The stem was replaced with a Nitto Pearl in 1985 after I started racing. Brake levers are OEM, but the calipers are Suntour Superbe. The Superbe levers are on a Miyata 1000. Lived in the Bay area at the time and was able to ghost shift it on the hills in San Francisco and when climbing out of Berkley up to Skyline Dr.

No longer ride it, I have it mounted like a trophy in my office.
