Raleigh Twenty Hobbyist
A recent thread mentioned R20 Hobbyists and Traditionalists as well as a suspension fork on an R20. So I thought I would post these pix of my fleet. Both were eBay finds and are 1973 vintage. I got the white one first, cleaned it, oiled it and updated the shifter, grips, brake levers, front wheel and tires. When my wife rode it she decided that it had to be her's so I just had to buy a second one. The second one got the same updating plus a suspension fork and an adjustable stem. The fork installation was a bit of a challenge, especially keeping the original fender. Both bikes are a great ride and are now the only bikes we take on vacation trips. They replaced a pair of Trek 800 MTB's.
