    Raleigh 20 frame?

    Anyone know where I might get a Raleigh 20 frame at a reasonable price? I feel the need to build another one.

    I already have most of the parts I need and I know they will fit on a 20 because they used to be on the one I have:

    Bike friday split flat bars w/ grip shifters
    1" threaded headset
    Adjustable stem
    Sachs rear deraileur
    Sachs 3x7 rear wheel
    Alloy 406 front wheel w/ LX hub
    UN72 bossom bracket and Phil Woods rings
    Shimano 105 crank
    SPD pedals
    Saddle


    All I need now is a frame, fork, and seatpost. What other folder frames are as stiff as the 20?

    I have one on ice here in lovely purple but we're still undecided as to what to do with it. As you know it gets pretty expensive getting all the bits, unless you go fixed

    I would say there are a lot on sale on the UK ebay - if they are as rare in the US as I'm getting from the board you might be able to persuade a UK seller to ship it to you. Fully working Twentys/Stowaways/Shoppers/Safaris seem to go for anything between 10 and 90 here. There was a rare BSA badged one went for a song the other week.

    Or look for a Dawes Kingpin?

    Very interested to see the specs of that Shimano Bosom Bracket

    Keep checking Craigslist and ebay. I got one for $90 USD + shipping on ebay recently. After starting to price out parts to upgrade it to a tourer, I'm sort of wondering if it'd been cheaper just to spring for an ebay Friday...

    It's a prominent feature on the front, one of the nicest parts.

    My brother was living in London until the middle of last year. I should have bought one then and had him ship it to me. Oh well, I'll just have to keep watch.

    I'm looking for one that is not in good shape since I'm going to pitch everything except the frame. Also West of the Rockies to limit the shipping cost. "Restorable" twenties are going for $125 or more on ebay. With shipping that's probably $200. craigslist may be better, just have to keep watching.
