A 1958 Raleigh Lenton:

Image

23" c-t. Reynolds 531, with the classic Raleigh "dimpled" fork. It's been professionally powdercoated, not as good as an enamel finish but will keep it solid for a few years. Designed to run 27 x 1 1/4" wheels.

REDUCED!.

I fell over it this morning. So bump, both for me and the frame.

Yeah.

It doesn't **have** to be fixed gear, I just thought it would look nice naked. It was a suggestion, really.

Somebody'll want it, I'm sure. It's very cool, and probably quite rare. Try finding another 1958 Lenton.

Very nice. Love those Cyclo/Sturmey FM builds. Must build one sometime.

Reduced.

Might swap for a 21" road frame.

So busy saying "Reduced!", I edited it out. :oops:

£50 for a classic 1950s club frame is more than a bargain.
