Here's my lovely raleigh courier bike. It's been my daily ride for the last six months and hasn't had a single problem.

It had a new chain and the wheels and wheel bearings serviced before I started using it.

-strong rear rack
-Brooks synthetic saddle
-front and rear dynamo lights (this needs a new wire but the lights work)

It gives a great riding position and is stylish and in good condition, without attracting too much attention.
Im looking for £80 ono.

Any questions please ask!

Here are the photos: http://s866.photobucket.com/albums/ab22 ... er%20bike/

Hi, lovely old thing! Is that £80 delivered?
Cheers,
Pete
(hopped the fence form the 26" side :wink:)

EDIT

I should probably ask something more practical about sizing too :oops:
Do you have a couple of rough measurements please? Maybe your height if it suits you as it is in the pics would be as much help as anything :)

if it helps, i reckon that'd be perfect for a chap in the region of 5'10" - 6'1"

that's right, Im 5'11 and its perfect, but I recon anyone from 5'9 to 6'1 would be fine.

I'm not against posting it but it is good old British steel and is pretty heavy! What companies would courier it?

Cheers

Probably a bit on the large side and of course posting would be a bit of an ordeal - I really wasn't thinking there :oops: :lol:

Beautiful thing though, well worth a trip for! :wink:
