I'm not positive Dunelt has ever even been mentioned in these threads, let alone in the thread the other week about companies merged into Raleigh (and in turn were marketed and had 10 speeds under their own name, Phillips, etc. ) so I'll cut right to the chase, offered on the Craig's list in Minneapolis is a 10 speed Dunelt. Very Retro, but I thought some might find it of interest just to see, even with the smallish photographs. Not mine nor do I know the seller.

I do note, the seller says he upgraded the bicycle to having a 3 piece Cotterless Crank.
Quoting the author because if sold, the ad will be taken down:
"Yes you read the ad right, this is a Dunelt 10 speed road bike. Made in England. Although best known for their quality 3 speeds Dunelt made some road bikes. 21" (53 1/2cm) frame with a 31" standover this bike should fit riders between 5' 6"-5' 10". Upgraded with a 3 piece cotterless crankset and weinmann side pull brakes this bike gives a surprisingly quick and nimble ride.Lugged steel frame with ornate "Fleur de Lis" lugwork". Straight wheels, nice chrome, crankset and headset disassembled, cleaned, regreased, and reassembled. Brakes and gears adjusted. Ready to go.This is a vintage piece of cycling history and if properly cared for and maintained will hold if not increase in value through the years. Please include a PHONE number with your e-mail response "
Cool bicycle, a good chance I'd think that it's a Raleigh type of frame...but if I'm all wet in saying that, it'd really be a super collector's item. Dynamite colour!!
I always had the impression that Dunelt was a company that mostly manufactured 3 speeds for women. Apparently that is not totally so.
Nice job on this Dunelt, single speed I'd think: http://lugschicago.blogspot.com/2009/03 ... t-out.html
