One More Raleigh
The only problem is the handlebar stem is stuck. It's a nice GB stem, so I presently have the bike inverted and am filling the inside of the fork tube with automatic transmission fluid to help break it free. I have found that the seeping incredibly oily quality of ATF to be a perfect penetrating oil for freeing up stuck parts. I use it on rusty bolts, seized components, and I have even been known to soak an entire handgun in a vat of the red stuff. Here's hoping that in the next few days i can knock the stem free.
