    I actualy love my old raleigh and would like to see other ones so I know what I want next! and also wanna share some good old english roadster information, if you have any questions about Old raleighs let me know, i've learned alot about them over the years.

    1984 Raleigh transit 3 speed, it's a neat color and it's crap lol i'm rebuilding it with parts from a early 70's model.

    This is a Eatons Glider, however it's actualy a 1971 Raleigh sprite, hence both models looking the same and the glider's got Raleigh logos stamped on many parts. I am selling this because it's not 100% raleigh lol

    1972 Superbe, this happens to be a very unique superbe, they always only have one dyno hub, this one has two for some reason.

    Looks like a Dl-1. you should seek out the missing parts. That type of Dl-1 is a nighly desired one and if you ever wanted to sell it someone would pay something good for it, but it would need fenders and full chaincase, though to his their own, I like the look of it like that lol

    1984 Raleigh Super Course.

    This is an older picture
    Ive switched out the seat 8 times trying to find one that doesn't hurt my "sit bones". Im trying to find a nice mattress saddle to plop on there.

    I sold this one and a real beat up woman's for $300. Seemed like a good deal. The rear hub on the men's bike was so rusted it wouldn't spin. I dump ATF and degreaser in it and it actually started shifting again. I couldn't believe it.

    Dang Hsean, looks like you've cornered the market on Raleighs!
    Wish I could find a pic of my old late '60s/early '70s tourer - which you'd probably like - but it's long gone, and maybe the pics are, too...
    And on that Eatons Glider - is that two different diameter wheels, or just an optical illusion??? :shock:

    1978 Record Ace, my charity ride lightweight, went from a 10 speed to 14 speed w alloy wheels and upright bars.
    [​IMG]

    1960? Hercules, made by Raleigh, kept original except for upright bars and tires. I have the serial but no way of being sure of the exact year, could be early 70's.
    [​IMG]

    1970 Phillips 1 speed, also made by Raleigh, original except for the seat and tires.

    Hmm KZ1000 thems some nice ones, it's to bad the green two are in that condition, that color of that model are much harder to find. I dig the black sports. it looks new lol

    As for the Glider's wheel size. I think your seeing things Hammond Eggz lol

    Heres a few more.

    This is actualy one of my fav mountain bikes. out of all the mountain bikes i've rode this one was a great ride, a friend of mine is useing it at moment. i'm proberly gonna get a second one.
    [​IMG]

    Big piece of junk. looks neat but the quality was not.
    [​IMG]

    Another Glider. but it's a Sports.
    [​IMG]

    These are a nice color too. the pictures on the seat tube are nice.
    [​IMG]

    THis is the mate to the 1930's Raleigh. I never got this one, it did end up in my city somewhere though. reason I didn't want it is because i'd borow all the lovely parts... lol

    Looking at that blue trike gives me ideas. I've got 2 sports bikes and a trike conversion that might become my next build.

    Looks like a early 1970's Raleigh sports, the type of brake leaves that bike has where only put on the raleighs for a few years in the early 70's after those the quality started dropping. most my 70's Raleighs have those because I think they are interesting.

    Compair that Raleigh to my old black one, both sports and not much changed over the years back then, these where great daily use worker bikes.

    I bought that bike at a local junk auction, It was a 1973,I don't think it was ever ridden. Had all kinds of original paperwork in the bag along with tools. 1 paper was for the brake levers, they were an upgrade that the owner had put on when new. I rode it for a few miles then put it on ebay after I swapped out a well used seat and got over $480. for it. Still have the original seat, looks like it was just made.

    Yeah the Sports is offten a highly desiered model and bring in good money. the Superbe is the Deluxe version, that reminds me of mine when I got it, it had packing paper and stuff stuck to it in a few places and some tools. some people seem to buy them and never use lol
