After a complete removing, repainting, and replacing, my beige 2008 Raleigh Sojourn is now frostbite blue and ready for another 15,000 miles! I definitely had to retire the old Brooks saddle though.
Super thanks to the fine folks at Raleigh customer service for hooking me up with a spare derailleur hanger – the representative I spoke with was super happy just to hear of one of these discontinued old beauties still rolling.
Practice run tonight up through Niagara USA and Canada. Hoping for rain, I have suspicions about the dry rot on my rain fly.
