    Vintage raleigh rsw mk2!

    Came across this little early 70s gem at work today, I work for a charity that recycle old bikes and sell them fixed up back to the public as well as shipping bikes to Africa, anhoo browsing todays deliverys that folk have no use for, I saw this, I really like it, pity I am buying a new tern soon but was tempted to get it at staff discount, read the history on it and it used to be competition for the moultons back in the day and almost made them disappear, whaddya think?

    I have a Compact RSW (folding version) the things are a tank. Mine weighs more than it's larger cousin the Twenty. It is an interesting little beast though.

    Here's mine, purchased to be upgraded as its showing its age, paid 6.50 for it.

    Quite a heavy little character which I hope to lighten.

    Just had a better look at your pic, see that it has has been modified, looks interesting, derailleurs and larger alloy wheels, possibly 18" or 16" x 1 3/8",I'd put some different tyres on it, could be a nice little bike.
