    Hi, I'm new to this site. I love older folding bikes
    (specifically Raleigh "Twenty" bikes and Raleigh RSW bikes).
    Love the combination of form and function with these English folding bikes. Thought I'd introduce myself...an OldSkool gal!

    Hello origamibiker, how old is old? Not only would the Folder folks like to look, but it's possible that the Classic & Vintage forum would take notice too .

    Welcome to BF!

    Hi There!

    I have a Raleigh RSW Compact from 1966, a Raleigh "Twenty" from 1972 and another "Twenty" on the way" that I bought sight-unseen (except for a couple of photos) on the internet...sure hoping that I'm not dissapointed when it arrives, that bike's also from the 70's. I really love the RSW compacts and the "shot gun" sound they make when you're crackin' them open! Super c-o-o-l!

    A few years ago when I was commuting by train in the city I had a Raleigh 20 that I took on the train with me and then rode to wherever I had to go. I loved that wee bike and I was foolish to get rid of it
    I do have a couple of Raleigh 20 frames under my workbench though and if I was smart I should do something about building one of them up for getting about on.
    OMNIPOTENS aeterne Deus, qui nos secundum imaginem Tuam plasmasti, et omnia bona, vera, pulchra, praesertim in divina persona Unigeniti Filii Tui Domini nostri Iesu Christi, quaerere iussisti, praesta quaesumus ut, per intercessionem Sancti Isidori, Episcopi et Doctoris, in peregrinationibus per interrete factis et manus oculosque ad quae Tibi sunt placita intendamus et omnes quos convenimus cum caritate ac patientia accipiamus. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
