    The bars are truly kickass.









    I acquired the bike this past summer and am only it's second owner.

    The original owner died as a result of injuries he sustained in a bike crash (not on this bike) during a race...he was in his seventies when the crash happened.

    I was told he rode this bike every week for 50 years and despite the patina of age, the bike was and is in perfect mechanical condition and is an amazingly nice bike to ride.

    Cause people ask...I will not be repainting this bike unless I can acquire a full set of decals and find someone who can do a professional restoration

    The Wright's saddle on the bike dates to the late 30's and is the most comfortable saddle I have ever owned.

    " They should have buried that bike with him ."

    But then it would be nothing but rust... I often think that I am being watched when I ride this bike that was so beloved and feel a sense of duty in making sure it stays well preserved.

    " cool bike sixty fiver--

    It is a 531 frame and back in 1955 the fixed gear version of the Lenton cost 15 pounds which was quite a sum although the 3 speed version was another pound... at 31 pounds it was still considered a lightweight bicycle although it does not ride or feel like a heavy bike.

    The 1955 is also the last year Raleigh used 26 inch wheels on their road bikes and as far as I know, these are the original stainless Dunlop EA1 wheels the bike came with and they still look like new.

    its a 38c, the only one I could find in town! all the bike shops here only sell 25cs for 700 wheels. one bike shop had this single tire. it keeps the bike under me when its wet on the very slippery concrete roads here.

    Everything about that Lenton conversion is beautiful and makes sense.

    I agree with the beautiful part and thanks !

    One thing though... the Lenton came as a fixed gear model in 1955 and is not a conversion.

    email them your mailing address and they send you a bunch of those stickers for free (like 8 of them)

    I would suggest a small donation if you can, I still mean to.
