    Bought a Raleigh Folder Today and back in the fold.

    I sold all of my folders and decided I would like one again especially with all of the Raleigh threads going. I have been looking on CL and the prices have gone up or there just arent any. Today on CL I decided to check an area in British Columbia that I normally dont look at and someone had posted 3 bikes for $120 and one was a folder. From the photo I could tell that is was a Raleigh and had 451 rims. The folder was priced at $1oo and for $20 more 2 Raleigh 10 speeds were thrown in. Well I just tried the folder and the shifter needs to be adjusted. The SA hub has the date 11 78. Here is a pic and the cleaning begins.

    Awesome score... and I thought my recent find was in good condition.



    My tyres had perished and had to be replaced and I replaced the stock grips with black ones that are actually grippy.

    Nice scores, I am surprised as to how many are coming out of the wood work. The 451 is the nice surprise for me as I feel they do roll nicer.

    Good grief. Compared to the recent ones others have scored here, mine is such a train wreck.

    I'm taking my time painting it since I have to wait for some parts for it. In addition, I'm cleaning up other parts besides locating replacement bolts, etc.

    Whatever the case, back to your find dyno. That's a really nice one.

    Pumped the tyres up on my modded 406 SS R20 and the wife's 451 Magenta R20 with SA 8 spd for a nice Sunday ride.
    Came out a few minutes later to discover I had over-inflated and burst my wife's front tube/tyre, (Stelvio), and I had no spares.

    Some days you're not meant to ride.

    PS: Nice find, Dynocoaster
