Pursuit Twenty! Heh. No I wouldn't be able to ride one like that - my back might just resign on me...

Lil' Pixel, you are the man at photoshop.

I found a shop here that has a couple of NOS (new old stock) decals. For the Twenty's that say "Raleigh" instead of "Twenty". Also you guys might check this guys Ebay store occationally http://cgi.ebay.com/Die-Cut-Vinyl-Bi...742.m153.l1262 (make sure you click on the "Alternative Images" there are several different sheets of decals there) The one labeled "Type II" would almost be perfect for some R-20's. The decals he has would work to replace some of our mangled ones, and I talked to him, and he said he may produce a set specifically for the Twenty! these are cheap enough too... I may order a set just to check the quality first.

Come check the progress...

R-20's: As cool in real life as they are on paper...

Very nice! Love the chrome lugs. BTW, headtube has to be black but I can see why you make it yellow . Yes, I will take one with a taller stem Can you imagine a 753 Twenty/Shopper... nice job.

Hey phatatude...those are real vintage style stickers.
From the 50s I think.
Im wanting an All Steel roadster.
Or even those far east bikes Is it DL1 there called.
I tried to get a Flying Pigeon off of Ebay. But always bid too low.
Not keen on getting things sent from far away countries though.

When I was young and did lots of miles on my bike. I had a TI Raleigh Creda cycling Jersey.
It was Red Black and Yellow.

I had a Mark 5 in 1982 with black head tube, always thought the yellow tubes were WRONG. Thanks for tthe correction. How I would like to have one now. It has been such a long time since I last seen such a colour scheme. I believe they don't exist in North America. I had mine in Asia.
