A Vintage RGP given a Modern Day Paint Job!! Fantabulous!!
Wish I had more pictures of this one. Many people would not think a Raleigh Grand Prix merits being modernized and all dolled up as this owner did, many would hold out and do that for probably the higher end bikes, a Competition say. You get a feel for the bike. Perhaps I can find more photos. I would say the project was a success. Note, how the owner who did all of this himself did not actually chrome the fork (barely visible) or the back chain and seat stays which were not chromed to begin with I'd think but gives a bit of an illusion of those parts being chromed.
Edit: Please see a few postings up for another picture of the full frame.
