ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTI0NS follow stage by stage and your bicycle will be ready to ride in minutes.
I found these in a saddle bag that I bought. I've been meaning to share for weeks now. Finally Bianchigirl posted her new posters and I couldn't wait any longer.
The resolution could probably be better. Maybe I should get some close ups tomorrow.

The French would have just laughed at those instructions......

I've got large copies of the catalog here:

Raleigh Parts, Service, and Owner's Manuals

I also have the unpacking manual, but never got around to scanning it.

Sweet! Sailor Benjamin...need to scan those into a nice pdf format! I used to throw things like that out, but as I get more British made bicycles the more I appreciate the documentation on them.

Kurt, do you have the info like that on the Twenty? I have see the scans somewhere, and I have a odd copy that I could email you.

My first bike shop boss started in Jamaica, his home country. He said they would get the Raleighs, and they had to build them, which included building the wheels. I think he said they had to put the headsets and bottom brackets together, too. This was in the 50's or 60's. He still owns a shop in Manhattan. I guess he's in his 60's now. He looks great, too.

Other than the documentation on The Headbadge, plus the same assembly instructions that Sailorbenjamin posted, that's all I have. I'd love to host a copy of your Twenty manual. If it's Raleigh, I'll host it.

Kurt -

Are you interested in a scanned copy of ‘Care for your cycle – Raleigh cycle owner’s handbook’ from the mid 70’s?

If it's Raleigh-related, and I don't already have it on my site, of course. Ditto for any catalogs not yet published online; Guerciotti, Basso, etc.; the more information available to everyone online, the better.

I ought to get off my tush and scan the one that Sailorbenjamin referenced in his first post.

PM me and I'll send my email address over. Let me know what name to credit it under.

-Kurt

I finally found some time to scan and download 'Care for your cycle, Raleigh cycle owner's handbook' from the early / mid 70s to my Picasa account. It originally came with my International in 1974.

You can PM me with your email address.

I'd love to get a copy of that manual, as well. Apparently I'm too new to BF.net to send PM's, though. Any ideas?

Not going to make it this year...I am working in PA and that is a bit too far to make the run...I think.

I just noticed that you have added this booklet to 'The Headbadge' site. Looks great
