THE JOYS OF LIVING

 

 

1928 Gent’s Special Raleigh

24″ Frame

28″ Wheels

3-Speed Sturmey Archer

GOOD ORIGINAL CONDITION

UNRESTORED PAINTWORK WITH ORIGINAL BADGES & TRANSFERS

SOME ORIGINAL BOX-LINING INTACT

MECHANICALLY GOOD & READY TO RIDE

 

Some people have a perverse need to repaint any old vehicle they own in the mistaken belief that it improves it. But a vintage bicycle is only original once. Good original paintwork and transfers (decals) are treasured among true enthusiasts, indeed it is considered a thing of beauty.  Examine this original old Raleigh, for example: would you give him a ‘facelift’ like an egotistical movie star? Or should he be allowed to age gracefully in natural splendour?

This 85-year-old machine was built to last, and is easily capable of providing faithful service for a further 85 years. One handlebar grip is missing, which I will fit prior to delivery to his new owner.
