I was at my grandmas house helping my uncle rebuild his airplane engine when I saw 2 Raleigh twenty folding bikes. Today I went back over and looked in the garage and there they were one that had "Folder" written where it usually says Raleigh on the chain guard and then said Raleigh where it usually says Twenty. I'm going to get it tommorrow morning. The other one is a twenty and is dark red. It has a few problems with the crank being bent in so it hits the chain but other than that it's good. Anybody else have one of these? I know Sheildon Brown has a few. He gave me some ideas for the red one as far as making it a fixed gear. But the Folder I think I'm going to keep it mostly stock because it's in such good condition, it just needs a good cleaning and new tubes/tires.
Raleigh 20's? Never heard of 'em.

LOL @ Randya.
Seth - You've stumbled on a hotbed of Raleigh Twenty fans on this site!
If you do a search for Raleigh Twenty in this section's posts or even just scan for message titles you'll find a shed-load of info/advice/tips/faqs on these bikes. Sheldon is the original fan, but you might want to look up John Allen, Cheg, V1nce and Guy Bouchard's sites that all have a lot more on them, or of course my own site - link in my signature below. (Which has links to all the aforementioned sites in the "Twenty Gallery" page
