    Hello from Denver

    Greetings all, My name really is John Smith and I live in Denver Colorado. I just bought a gold Raleigh Sports which I believe is a 1971 model and plan to acquire a few more from the same family as my budget allows. I ride to work, with two different clubs here in Denver, I've ridden on 3 different velodromes, I have done several charity rides, I ride a fixie(Specialized Langster Seattle), And get out and pedal every chance I can. Basically I have dwelled in just about every facet of bicycling throughout my life. My Aunt had an old Raleigh rod braked bike I would ride around growing up and Raleighs have always fascinated me. I also run a local bicycle coop. For some reason because everyone sees me riding, they think I want to have their old bike. So I take them all and get them running and then give them to anyone in the area that needs a bike. They are mostly Walmart bikes. I also repair all of the childrens bikes. Raleighs are plentiful in Denver and I might just start gobbling them up. Here are some pictures of some of my bikes. My fleet is presently a Trek FX 7.5,

    Novara Transfer,

    Specialized Langster Seattle,

    Electra Amsterdam Sport 3 in red,


    AMF roadmaster which is the exact model used by the cutters in Breaking Away needing restoration,

    I also Have my newly acquired Raleigh Sports, A 1995 Specialized Globe 7, and a Specialized Sequoia Comp

    I will get a better pics of it this weekend. I have a few more pieces of hardware, a cedo lock, and a taillight to put on it yet from the parts bike I have. I just need to find a nicer front fender for it. My wife hates it but everyone else that sees it, loves it.
