    Anyone Intersted in a Barn Find 48 Sports, Rod hub Brakes, Dyno, 26" EA3, chaincase?

    Some guy at the office turned up with one in his office. He's trying to trade with me, but I don't really want it. Local would be best - it's one heavy sucker.

    Nah, it's a small frame. No one was tall back then.

    It's a dirty bike, decals aren;t too bad. Big dent inthe chaincase. Otherwise, what you would expect froma barn find. Pretty nice, very unusaul rod brakes on a 26 inch bike. If I hadn't already done the 3 speed chaincase thing, I'd a jumped on it.

    #2: I've seen 1930's DL-1's with 26" frames. On 28" wheels, that ain't no small potatoes.

    I'll talk to him and see what he wants to do. It's a 'family' bike, so he wants it to go to a 'good home.'

    I don't think it's a $75 bike, though, so you should be prepared for that. I told him I thought he could get $200 for it as is because of it's rarity - I told him I would pay $200 if I wanted it - but I am in no way representing him or selling the bike for him.

    I'll see if he wants phone numbers or wants to give one out.

    So...after all the chat the other day about Sports v. Tourists, Dawn Tourists, Superbe Sports Tourists, etc., I'm very curious to see this bike. Is it one of these in the catalog or...? http://www.bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/Raleigh47-48/
