Originally sold back in the day as a humdrum drop bar 5 speed, this vibrant candy red 58cm lugged steel Pacemaker has been subjected to a comprehensive & stylish utilitarian makeover in our workshop and is supplied in super clean, fully fettled condition complete with a 6 month guarantee.
Aside from the frame – which has excellent paint and decals – the only original parts to make the cut are the beautiful quill stem and shiny chromed headset. Long gone are the derailluer, steel wheels, seatpost, rubbish brakes and drop bars (steel naturally). The handsome and unique retro-modern bike now features a reliable Shimano Nexus 3 speed drivetrain, sharp Tektro dual pivot brakes and lighter, stronger double walled aluminium rims.
New parts include sweptback Nitto handlebars, reflective Schwalbe tyres and Sturmey Archer thumbshifter, plus new tubes, chain, rear sprocket, cables, saddle, pads, grips & chromed bell.
Equipped with lovely restored vintage Raleigh mudguards, NOS Afa pump and a handy kickstand, a rear luggage rack and chainguard are available as optional extras for the Pacemaker.
