Inch pitch chains disappeared in Europe long before they did in the U.S.

If I were the OP, I might try contacting the guy who runs The Online Bicycle Museum (http://www.oldbike.eu/museum/)

A lot of bikes were still using slack frames and long wheelbases into the 70s. Especially lower priced bikes. Huffy and Columbia were building bikes with 68° frame angles, and on shorter frames most...

I seem to recall reading that BSA's Indian arm had a factory in Africa that was for some years very successful until Chinese imports killed their business.

Well the handlebars say "made in england" so I must assume that's where the bike was made. It was probably rebranded for the German (or Dutch?) market. I don't think it was made by Raleigh, doesn't...

The height of the saddle isn't going to make the bike top heavy or not. If you're getting proper leg extension you're fine for seat height.

In the U.S. a bike like that may be worth $90-$100 if it were cleaned up. Don't know what the market is like in NZ. Maybe ask them to make you an offer?

It looks like a Simplex, but it doesn't look like one of the terrible plastic ones. It might not be too bad.

For the sake of simplicity and saving money I'd just find an old 27" alloy wheel set. You can probably find a good used set for next to nothing and it would be a big upgrade over those steel rims.

I've ridden on gravel roads with old 26 x 1 3/8 tires, and did not have a problem. Maybe somebody can hype up that old size now and make some money?
