    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.

    No, but it does come with an RC Cola and a Moon Pie.

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

    You should be able to find a good home for it either on the Classic & Vintage forum here in BF, or at htpp://oldroads.com

    cheers,

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

    Good luck on getting rid of it- I have a 3 speed Mixte in the shed that is imaculate. I picked it out of a skip but No-One wants it.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
