1985 Raleigh Portage

1985 Raleigh Portage

Professional frame alterations, custom paint and no expenses spared


Currently, the Portage has the chain guard removed although it will come with the purchase. The pictured Soma Grand Randonneur tires have been swapped for perfect fitting Pacenti Pari-moto, 650B X 38mm. The entire build is as impeccable as you would expect with less than 100 shakedown miles logged on the frame and components.
