ENGLISH ROADSTERS:†††Miller light set posted by: Ted Trambley on 11/6/2006 at 8:31:36 PM
My '51 Clubman has a Raliegh Heron light bracket on the front fork. I have two vintage Miller Dynamo light sets, one is a headset mount, the other a stem mount. Is there any way to get a conversion piece for either to fit the fork bracket or do I have to do the EBay thing and get another light? Ted

You could kustom build a bracket for the fork,or have one built.But the ebay thing might be the best in the long run as the orinigal fork mounts and light housing would be a more solid mount than using the brackets on your lights to bolt to a kustom mount.I have built kuston fork mounts and used modern LED lights--they are lighter and have more light--I like the fork mount as it does put the light right down infront of the wheel where it should be.---sam

I'd go for the front Dynohub wheel with the smaller SA Sport light. Streamlined!

Anne,
eBay is the best way. You would exceed your hoped for £25.
Or you could see if the Old Bicycle Company or Cycles of yesteryear are interested.

Matthew - advice is cheap and nasty.

Looks very impressive. The carrier cycle looks like something from the Pashley range. The Oma & Opa models translate as Grandma & Grandpa.

What's with the skirt guard on the men's bike? Personally, I always roll my dress up and pin it to my wife-beater t-shirt when I ride.

Pricey, yes. $995US for the 3-speed, plus $125US shipping to US, plus $100US import fees, plus CDN sales tax, plus whatever currency conversion fees your credit card charges. The Electra, already available in the US, looks much better at $550.

I think it's more for the prevention of water being sprayed onto one's inner thighs. Never a good thing, aye? ;-)

That's a very nice looking ride you've got there. I would like the Superbe/Sprite/Sport that I'm saving up for to look as cool as yours does. I like the front rack and the chaincase.

Both are essential - I have to get to work with clean pants, and I can't get my leg over the rear rack when it's full of groceries, but I've transported furniture on the front rack without a problem.

The trigger is not original...not even SA. Fairly well worn for a late model machine. I'd pass...the tools and instructions don't really make up for the condition and age.

Behold the 1970 Raleigh Tourist D.L.1..
This is a 1970 model the type exported to the U.S.A. It is a 24 inch frame size. If you search about you'll find these in 26 inch frame sizes and do more searching you'll find these in 28 inch frame sizes as well. This bike has no enclosed chainguard, no locking fork and no light kit or Dynohub. Nothing special as way of tools, these were the common tools that came with the bike. No leather bag either, no bell. Basic B- 72 seat also. I see minor rust on the handlebars. The current price is about right. However, the long 28 inch alloy kickstand is a plus. By 1970 the original Raleigh made alloy kickstand that we see here was replaced by the German Esgee kickstand that Raleigh switched to using. This bike when made had the Esgee kickstand and somebody has replaced it with an original Raleigh alloy kickstand and these kickstands can fetch as much as the whole bike. The quality of workmanship and chrome plate in the wheel rim department in this section of time was not so great either.
Still and excellent commuter bike with potential. Smooth, graceful, and easy pedaling.
I love the Semperet made Raleigh Roadster tires that came on these bikes. Marvelous, sweet tires these are.

This trigger is not made by Sturmey- Archer as already mentiioned. It is a copy of the Sturmey- Archer. Oh, it's functional all right,but it has been replaced.
