I have a fairly modern 28-inch bike with rod brakes that I am parting out. It has a single-speed rear hub. Would the rear wheel work for you? Chrome is good. Price is $30 plus shipping. Kevin Cullen, Lafayette, Indiana

That's just.... wrong.... $300 more and it will be as much as I paid for a brand new Honda Civic in 1981.

Just goes to show.... one never knows what one has...

Cheers!

Why would this one Item number: 280162535984 be so much cheaper? I don't know anything about them but aren't they the same?
Pete.....confused.

Pete, The devel's in the details, Campagnola collectors known to be precise - date codes stamped on various parts of the derailer, etc. Sort of like a 1935 Raleigh Sports vs. a 1980 Raleigh Sports....yes they're the same, but then again completely different.

A 1951 Campy derailer surfaces about every 10 years and the big spenders go at it. who knows, maybe It'll reach $10,000 !

In light of all the above, I'll stick to three speed clunkers and remain solvent.

Not in this case particularly, but I've seen parts, real miniscule/exotic parts sell for high amounts, and I really do wonder if people are just pulling a fast one and just messing around; like the ol' joke about guys sitting around the crackerbarrel thinking of things to write to Dear Abbey.

Ebay cracked down; I have never re-registered there but perhaps in the future.

ENGLISH ROADSTERS:Raleigh Serial Number posted by: Burcak on 10/17/2007 at 10:28:31 PM
Hi,
I just bought a Raleigh roadster with 28" rims, rodbrakes, full chaincase and fork-lock. My intention is to restore it, however it has been repainted and most of the original parts were replaced as well as the 3-speed rear hub with dyno as the seller told me so.
The bike has DT15035 stamped on the frame. I have searched a bit but could not find such a frame number for the Raleigh bikes.
Does anyone have any idea what is the year and model of the bike.
Thanks in advance,
Burcak

A lot of dough for a replica... but then, it's not like y'all can go on down to the local Wal*Mart and get yerself one... replica or not, eh?

Nice machine. It will be interesting to see what it goes for.

Cheers!

The real thing will cost you about $25,000 if you can find one.

No this isn't expensive. They were retailing at over 1500 streling when new in 2005 and they go up in value not down.

$25,000 sounds dear for an original. You can find rideable originals for 3000 to 4000 in the UK. I can't afford one but have ridden an original. They are fast and an accquired taste. Brilliant design.
