Bought this old girl off of ebay for £7.50 ($12?) to customise, with drop bars, alloy wheels etc.
But when I set eyes on it I just couldn't do it
33 years old and in almost immaculate condition.
It's got a detachable shopping bag, dyno hub lighting, comfortable seat etc. etc.
Set up for me at 6' 1" here, or it could be ridden by a 10 year old child.
3 speed Sturmey Archer gears and original white-walls.
Looking a bit muddy here, but it has been raining for ever this month.....
Chrome is almost perfect, but has a little spotting on the top of the bars.
All I have had to replace is the front inner tube.
Is that not a credit to the old Raleigh company?
And the previous (one) owner?
