Raleigh Olympian Single Speed $250

This is a 80's Raleigh Olympian frame that I tinkered around with for a while before finishing up.  I got the frame from a student leaving Chicago.  She graduated to a newer model Motobecane but this was her single speed ride.  I was able to find the original cranks but that's about it so I kept it single speed.

It's a all around great bike, Chro-Moly tubing, Weinmann center pulls, and Alex 303 Wheelset  I have it at a pretty high ratio too so it is a beast to ride.  The front chainring is 52t and the rear flip flop cog/free wheel is 16t.  Very fast but you have to be strong!
