Any advice please for finding a home for a 1984 Raliegh Rapide? I live in France and currently ride a 2014 carbon fibre machine from Chain Reactions.however languishing in my cellar is white Rapide which has been updated with Mavic Aksium wheels and scram 8 speed cassette and Fsa Triple chain set and shimsno 105 cassettes. Size is 21 inch frame. I still have the originals wheels. The condition of the paintwork on the frame is almost showroom and it is a shame to see it quietly accumulating dust . I think somewhere I have still got the original bill . Any helpful suggestions on saving a piece of cycling history would be much appreciated. Of course if anyone is interested I could also provide some photographs . Many thanks .

    There would be plenty of interest in this on - 80s Raleigh are very popular for people reliving their youth!
