Raleigh DL-1 Gents

1974 Vintage Raleigh DL-1 Gents model. 23-1/2" frame measured from center of bottom bracket to top tube along the seat tube. 33-1/2" stand over distance. Black, of course. Was there any other colour? I know, a few were made in chrome.

Virtually all original. The mattress saddle that it came with has been replaced with an appropriate Brooks B72. It came to me with the mattress style saddle which I can imagine the original owner returning to the bike shop complaining about the initial comfort of the Brooks saddle and not waiting for it to be broken in.

I really like the bike and have enjoyed the time I have had with it, however, I am not the type of bicycle enthusiast that could leave well enough alone, it is better off in someone's hands that has the right combination of nostalgia, history, respect and can say it is perfect the way that it is.

The bike is located in Long Island, NY. It is too big to ship. Wheels, brakes, mudguard et al would have to come off. The handlebar and stem are one piece . Brake linkage would have to be removed as well. Sorry, however, I would prefer not to ship it.

It is listed here on Craigslist with plenty of pictures:

Please contact me or PM me if you have any questions or want to meet.
