I'm totally thrilled, picked up two Raleigh Sports 3 speed bikes this morning at a rummage sale. Fairly sure from the original owners. S/A hub on the men's has a 69 stamped onto it so I believe these are both 1969 models. Both brown, both with original appearing Brook's saddles. Men's was tuned up last year, woman's wasn't ridden for many years. Both still have the original fenders too. I don't think I can post pics with the phone so pics will come later today.
One of the guys at the shop desperately wants them but I'm going to tell him I have to show them to my wife first.
Yesterday I picked up a front Wald basket that might go nicely on these. I've also got two pair of rear wire side baskets that might complete these. Or maybe just leave them as is apart from a tune and new tires and brake pads on the woman's bike.
I'm thinking these are going to be keepers. The guy at the shop is going to be bummed out, he wants them bad.
