Here's a 'classic' 1979 Raleigh Twenty... a lovely little bike which I believe is in 99% original trim.

For sale at £50 collected from Chorlton, Manchester, M21 9NW - sorry no postage!

It's generally in fairly good unrestored condition and comes c/w kickstand, chainguard, luggage rack, dynamo mounting, full length mudguards, QR post and stem etc.

The rear hub gear cable need adjustment, the saddle needs refitting at the front, there's a fair amount of surface rust on the chromework and it needs a longer rear outer brake cable.

Basically it's a project I've never had time to get stuck into, apart from some work I did at the end of last year to get the drivetrain and brakes moving more freely.
