Some items come from the most unexpected sources. This was proven to me yet again when an obscure document comes my way from Dan, a cyclist from Baltimore, Maryland.

The problem with used parts isn’t typically an issue at all unless you discover that the history of the items are questionable.
Portland is warming up, the spring rain is becoming more infrequent and the ball of light in the sky we typically don’t see for months is replacing our “liquid sunshine”.
On the heels of my ’85 Raleigh Kodiak purchase comes another touring acquisition. Introducing a stout, 1986 Raleigh Alyeska dressed in a classy bordeaux and rose trim paint scheme.
