Welcome to the world of Retrobikes. Get ready for a slow spiral into an Autosol addiction and excuses for buying just one more bike.
I've always had a soft spot for Raleigh's especially one's that roughly were the same colour as the team ones.
It looks like the bottle cage may have been bent (probably to take a pop bottle). I'd be tempted to bend it back into shape to take a normal shaped 'bidon'.
Enjoy your bike,
Thanks for the welcome
Already got an Autosol addiction Im afraid from my other garage toys lol
The bottle cage bends seem very precise to be honest and there's also signs of light wear on the insides of the top part, as though it used that part to clip into a bottle. From my google searching, it looks like it maybe to fit a funky streamline style/shaped bottle. But without a make, Im struggling. It's Italian made if that helps at all?
