Yes that's the equivalent of a BMW Mini, it's not the original, the seat on my MK1 was one piece, the chain ring had the Raleigh symbol on it, and had a kn*cker cracker gearstick in the middle.

Yup, no, that didn’t work.

The Mk3 has an alloy frame and ISO threading so could have been really good, but safety considerations ruined it by deleting the two most iconic features*. The Mk3s are not worth much compared to a "real" Mk1 or Mk2, even in "project" condition.

*I think retrofitting the console shifter and the banana seat is nigh-on impossible, too

Not keen on the welded handlebars of the Mk2
They welded them at the wrong angle!
