Well, I just checked my Sprite in my basement (priest bars and fenders-"Dutch Roadster" style that was popular back then), and your fork is most certainly bent. Also, my Sprite is about 30 lbs. Another consideration-the Raleigh uses very non-standard parts, and most threads are whitworth standard, not english standard, so conversion pieces will be expensive, if even available.ccski003 said:i'm pretty sure the fork is straight the picture is just funny
Quite certain about the threading. The steerer is also a strange (non-standard) size, as is the stem, bars, etc. The cranks cottered, as well. Have fun with it-you'll need some luck as well.....ccski003 said:everyone else was talking about the fork on the puegeot being bent so now your sayin the sprite is to? it's a sprite 27 not an original one so are you sure about the threads?
