    Got this one a few weeks back. posted in fresh finds but here is in the right spot.

    Real nice Sprite, original Raleigh Racer tires, Sturmey Archer rims, Rampar light.. assumign the Huret speedo was added, but open to comments. ( might take it off for my Higgins ).

    Nice bike, still have not taken time to fix a bad tube and take for a spin... soon......

    In 1997 I bought this Raleigh, as an ATB with a Shiman Nexus-7. I bought it just for some parts to take to Cuba to complete a cruiser for use in Havana. The frame and other parts though, remained in Holland. It already wasn't a 'vintage' when I bought it and I did not try to bring it back to original.

    Just finished my latest project, though it's not a Raleigh but similar style.. It's a Universal, which was covered in crappy 80's stickers, so I took them off, gave it all a polish and changed the seat/tyres/handlebars and added the light. Decided to leave the sticker on the front forks because they didn't look to bad and suited the rest of the bike well. Kinda like a lightning bolt.

    From the side on the handle bars are parallel to the frame giving it a speedway look
