I bought an old Raleigh Twenty from a englishman that thought it belonged in a museum. I had to pay a hard fought $75 for it. A few weeks later he told me he found the chainguard for it, so I went out to his house. He had some other newer bikes that he wanted new prices for, but I saw a red bike hanging upside down in the back. We took it down and he sold it to me for $15.
Below is what it looked like when I got it home. The only thing I did was pull the electrical tape off of the seat and posted some photos and ended up selling it to a happy collector to round out his set of three different model 1964s. He paid me $500 for it.
