Classic Raleigh Three-Speed Free to Good Home

I've also posted this on the "pay-it-forward" thread, but thought maybe somebody in the 50+ group might be intereted:

Classic Raleigh Three-Speed

This vintage "racing green" Raleigh three-speed is free to a loving home. Tires are new, and everything works. I'm 5' 9" and it fits me well. It was given to me with the provision that I would find it a good home when the time came. Since I have six other bikes, it's time to thin the herd. It is available at no cost to the first person who will ride it, care for it, and give it away to someone else when the time is right. PM me for more info.

Sometimes organizations are looking for good bikes for people who need one but can not afford one. Good luck on giving a good bike to a good home. ... ... .. ... .. .. .... ...peace

Can you hold it until I grow a few more inches? I'm currently 5' 3" .

I'm a college student looking for a good city cruiser, let me know if you still have the bike.
