A fan at last!
well this bike was brought new,used for a couple of months,got a puncture and was left at the bottom of a friends garden
when it was dragged from the bramble bush it looked sad,but after new inner cables,tyres and a bucket of soapy water i was going put it up for sale ( as i fix the odd mtb or modern bike just to flog off to get parts for my ever growing collection of classics just aquired 2 chopper frames)
untill i googled it and found the raleigh history site.
id like to see a more expensively made bike left in a bush for years look as good,and i know its nothing special but if no one saved these as standard then they woul disapear completely
next year people will be able to laugh at this in the flesh when it is on display with my others at car shows around wiltshire
i will bear you in mind but i think it will stay in the collection for now
