Finally got some nice white wall tires and setup the original excessories on the bike so here are a few new pics on her...still have to set the brakes and shifter cable. In the future. That’s it will be finished

You have better will power than I. If all I had to do to take that beast for a ride is run cables, I would not be able to stop until spinning circles. :) What a great bike!

Ha..i know...its because i have a bad back.. bending down is not my best. I will ride though.
The clamp-on shifters can be moved up closer to the head tube ( you would need longer shift cables, of course). Then you won't have to reach so far. I also think some period correct bar end shifters would work well. Sweet rig, love the color combo.

that's a good observation - Raleigh has a tiny triangular braze on to pin shifter band clamp, and it's only 4 inches from the head tube.

I love that bike and the way it looks. But the one thing I would do is move the shifters up to where they are supposed to be. They will be easier to reach, and more importantly, it will look much nicer. :) The total investment won't be more than a couple of bucks and a few minutes of your time.

you can use "helicopter tape" on your frame underneath band clamps to protect your frame from scratches
My '57 Lenton has 10 band clamps, and my '74 International has 7 - used helicopter tape beneath all.
