Recent purchase --- a Raleigh Sports. Nothing too special here but I love it! This is the third Raleigh 3 speed I have owned. The others were from the 50s. There is just something about the Raleigh 3 speed, I love the way they ride. This one is all original, except for the Saddle. I am looking for one (a leather Brooks I presume) and if you have an extra, get a hold of me. Also would love a bag that attaches to the saddle. The person I bought it from said they acquired it used from the original owner who bought it new in 1978. Serial number is RN9457969 which if I understand it correctly indicates is was made in Canada. Interesting to me these bikes have finally arrived. Though not worth a lot, the Raleighs I had previously I paid almost nothing for and then when I sold them I basically gave them away. This was in 80s.
