I am from India, I am still riding a Raleigh roadster which my father bought for his use in the year 1960, in Mombasa,East Africa the bike was made in England 45 years ago I learnt to ride a bicycle when I was the age of 8 years.
The bike was stolen once and was luckily recovered,It was then shipped back to (Goa) India in 1969 and is still in good condition,and was twice repainted.
I am a Refrigeration & air-conditioning techie by proffesion.
I commute to work and do other chores on this bike there are other bikes like this one in this world but this one is mine, it is a hand me down, I like my bike the next best thing after my life is my wife then my bike.
I will never sell it though many came with offers.
