Raleigh Mountie 3 speed bicycle

I used to ride a Raleigh Mountie 3 speed bicycle.
At one point I had a 5 speed Sturmey Archer hub inside
I sold it and the guy wrecked it to junk.
I would love to set up one for relive the memories. Where could I get one to purchase?

I called it 14 because the seat tube was 14 inches. Raleigh Bicycle Brochure for 1964?
I changed the wheels to 20" with bmx tyres.
Here is a photo for that who don't remember them

They do show up now and again, but rarely in the 3 speed version. I have seen only one on eBay and they wanted crazy money for it.
I have a girls coaster brake model in my garage that my kinds learned to ride on.
I had originally bought it for my sister in 1977. She kept it, or rather my grandfather did for a long interval.

I'm going to clean it up, and get it set up just as when I had it.

Nice Scraper build. Those cranks look dangerously long, be careful with your turns.

Thanks. Yes, I am aware. They are 170mm, I am going to resize them to 160mm soon.

Something like this procedure, with the crank cut and resize from 170mm to 160mm.

I've never seen a 3s Mountie, but I passed a single speed on to Dr Deltron years ago.


How's that for a flash to the back?

Anyone hear from the good Dr lately?

IMO, it's going to be a problem keeping enough meat around the new hole to maintain adequate strength of the crank. @rhm drilled some 175's for me (knee rotation problems) but they ended up at ~145 mm. I don't thing you'll ever find the clearance to safely get 160 mm out of 170 crank arms. If you succeed, may I hire you to mod a couple for me?

Yes, that is correct. If you drill and tap a new hole leaving a minimum of 6 or 7 mm material around it, you can shorten a crank arm by a minimum of about 22 mm. 175's become 153's. You may be able to skimp a little and shorten a crank by only 21 or even 20 mm but I would not ride such cranks.

It is something that I had done before. Better yet I could resize a 175mm to 160mm.
A bicycle mechanic that I know, who specialize is Raleigh has done it on his Raleigh Mountie, he used Sakae SA resize (without the shims - just used the tap to rethread). He's the one who recommends using Sakae SA to me.

I personally prefer Shimano, I had in the passed used Shimano 175mm resized to 160mm. The Shimano crankset has a wider width that the Sakae.
