    my twenty. Not 100% original obviously.
    love this bike. Pretty much my main ride until I swap out the bars on my road bike.

    '63 DL-1. This needed a full strip-down re-build re-paint. Still need to do the fenders and find a missing access door for the chainguard. I kinda like it as pictured though, and I did put some decals on and then took them off again. Rod to drum brakes fore and aft give me average stopping power. I think there's just too much slop in the rods and linkages to give the kind of direct pull a cable would. It's so nice to ride though, one of my favourite riders. For bike paths only lol

    Raleigh Butcher's Bike.
    Like I need more bikes, but have an issue with unique old frames.
    I just can't stop myself.

    Toasted seat and shifter replaced. I reached out to a muscle bike listing on Kijiji to see if he had Xtra
    parts. He had the shifter, I had the original mounting
    plate. He offered another style banana seat as well too. 20x1 3/8 tires will get on the road.
    The old 1930/40s chair may give up it's hide for seat recovers. It's also English and and the material is called Rexine. UK version of Naugahyde

    I have a 1948 Humber Sports with an original Raleigh handle bar that's rare. My pics aren't uploading for some reason but the handle bars are chopper style.
    Has a 3 speed sturmy archer that I've only peddled on the ground because I ain't riding that bike with no seat.
    Has Schwinn breeze tires too but they are cracked. Original fenders also but I took them off to work on it. The front hub and headlight with single rear red ligjt work too.

    My 1970 Raleigh Folder. Have had for a few years. Was rusted with original tires. Rear wheel was pitted...replaced rear wheel that had a '73 Sturmey hub in excellent condition. Replaced tires and cleaned up.

    Picked up this 1970 Raleigh Sports a few weeks ago. rbk1.jpg rb2.jpg rb3.jpg
    Had lots of rust and needed adjustments/tweaks.
    Just about all of the rust came off with a lot of scrubbing.
    Adjusted gears,brakes...new tubes and whitewalls.
    Original Brooks saddle (B72) tip broke off but I saved
    the bag. Rides really nice and going to be my daily rider.
