Broken Bottom Bracket

I had hoped to turn this Canadian built Raleigh frame into a 3 speed Path Racer of sorts. It looked like a good candidate as it was tall and free….

As it turns out, it would not accept the adjustable cup on the BB and a closer inspection revealed that it was cracked in a couple of spots. Not sure what would have caused this (over tightening?). In any case it’s been scrapped. I saved the  forks and am looking for a new frame/project.

    • I’ve seen that one and the frame is too small.
