1974 Raleigh Grand Prix (with a couple Schwinn Pictures thrown in)


Another nice evening, this time riding a 1974 Raleigh Grand Prix. This is a sportier bike than the Schwinn 3-speeds I have been riding most of this summer. It's a different feel.


I would not call it "better", though people who enjoy road bikes probably would enjoy it more. It's just "different". Each has its own feel on the road, and I like all of them for what they are.


It's a classy looking bike, though not as "retro" looking as the older Schwinns of the 1940s.

Here's an over-the-bars shot from the 1941 Schwinn New World from last night.


Here's a little wider shot over the New World bars. It's definitely more a 'utility' bike than the Grand Prix.
