Raleigh Sports x2

My dad passed away about a year and half ago, and, now that I have more space, I was able to pick up these bikes that were left to me. There is no story, really, he had only owned them for maybe a couple of years, but they will make some nice greenline cruisers. I'll have to acquire some new knowledge/skills to work on these as well, and that's always fun.

Date stamps on the SA hubs are 74 for the lady's and 73 for the men's:

Condolences for your dad's passing, but you have some nice bikes there to honor his memory. The men's has been upgraded with a Dynohub, lamp, and B66 saddle, making it akin to a Superbe. There should be a date code on the dynohub in the same format as the S-A rear hub.

74 on the dynamo hub. I’m not sure if the Brooks is from the period. It certainly looks newer.

Those are nice. Everybody should have at least one of these Model A's of the bicycle world. Don
