I recently acquired a vintage Raleigh & after some research I can't determine what I have. It has a "loop frame" with 2030 tubing, Sturmey-Archer 3 speed with AW 68 5 hub, Brooks B72 saddle, 28 x 1-1/2 Dunlop Roadster gold seal tires (states "Fits Rim F.25), however, I don't see a serial number anywhere. What do I have?

I really enjoyed it too. I couldn't help but wonder, if it was in pieces when they found it, how that Town&Country managed to be all there. Did they assemble it before you saw it, Vin? Or did you have to help them sort that box o' parts? My experience with projects, if you don't put it back together right away, bad things happen.

AGE / VALUE:Lottie Smith's cycling clothes posted by: Chris on 7/30/2011 at 9:43:27 AM
I love the old cycling clothes worn by the cyclists years ago. I wish there was a way to revive it. I saw a photo of Lottie Smith Jack Smith's wife of the Rattray's Flying Scot bicycle fame and she's posing for a picture with her ladies frame bicycle.

She's magnicicently adorned in the best cycling clothes for her day. Looking really lovely! That machine is ultra, ultra, special and unique. They made the best!

One project I would like to be involved with is locating old vintage cycling clothes that British cyclists, male and female wore daily and what was worn on club runs out with the gang.

Shine the spotlight on the vintage clothes, promote what survives and re-vive what has been lost in mist of time and bring it back!

In the photo, Lottie has a black eye. Perhaps acquired in fending off somebody who wanted to borrow her bicycle for a spin. That frame geometry and sloping fork , it's one very magical bike.

One lovely, smartly well dressed, lass. Married to Jack Smith one of the most talented gods of cycling.

AGE / VALUE:reproduction Raleigh Tourists, "Non original" posted by: Chris on 7/30/2011 at 9:26:24 AM
As far as the reproduction or Non Original Raleigh bikes go. I remember little Craig Warnock's plea to his parents in the ending of the movie: "Time Bandits"

"Mum! Dad! DON'T TOUCH IT! IT'S EVIL! " (And of course they both stick their hands in the super deluxe cooker and touch it and are instantly destroyed!

You are better off finding original Raleigh's or Phillips bikes thru e- bay, collectors, second hand shops and the internet.

Tires, tubes, perhaps brake pads, maybe enclosed chainguard parts and we have to be careful there because often the screws and mounting points will not match.

This is difficult . choppy, water to sail thru, crazy currents. The bikes, the product is not exactly the same, sly little changes have been made, alterations, cheapening done and it's not the same spirit, no longer British made.

That reason alone sinks it for me.
Your "reproduction" Raleigh type bike is below par quality wise. I say "don't go there."

RE:AGE / VALUE:reproduction Raleigh Tourists, posted by chris on 7/30/2011 at 9:43:15 AM
except for tires. Tubes we can get in the shops, brake pads only because they are thicker.

I'm not glad to have it, it's "imitation" basically the Raleigh copy bikes.

AGE / VALUE:Worth restoring? posted by: Cliff on 7/26/2011 at 4:14:23 PM
Was wondering if my 72 Raleigh Tourist is worth restoring? This bike was given to me a few years ago, and I've just never found the time to do anything with it until now. If you could take a look at the pic and leave me some feed back it would be much appreciated.

There seems to be a film of crust and rust over just about everything on this bike. It's missing one brake pad for the front and rear wheels. I'm not even sure that the wheels can be saved, but the Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub seems to be in good shape. The crank is definitely gummed up, and would need a good cleaning and regreasing. The back of the front sprocket is a lot more rusted than the face side. Fenders and chain guard are in real rough shape. I don't believe any amount of cleaning could make them good enough to use as is. Think they might need to be striped and repainted.

RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:Worth restoring? posted by chris on 7/26/2011 at 4:42:00 PM
my heart beats faster at the sight of it.

Oh, I'd love to have a go at it. This is a Raleigh Tourist d.l.1. a magical and wonderful graceful bike to ride. the way it handles, it is a treat!

stripping it and trying to repaint is a mistake, a costly mistake don't try it.

clean the chrome, repack bearings, clean off the rust, polish the paint, mend it, true the wheels, find grips and whatever parts you need, degump and repack , re-build and enjoy for years!

You have no idea just yet, how special this bicycle is.

This is where we start in this adventure the beginning.

You see, there are evening rides, in the neighborhood on the way back home, after dinner, in the moonlight riding, the gentle tick tick of the sturmey- Archer 3 speed hub and it's graceful, stately, gentleman's bicycle. I love them.

yes, it is worth restoring my god, yes.

Thanks for your reply Chris, and thanks for the input. I may do just as you suggest. I'm actually loaded down with bikes here at my house, but my favorite to ride is a 1958 Schwinn Deluxe Hornet. If I get this bike in riding condition I may just try to sell it. If I had more room here, I might consider keeping it.... Who knows, I may fix it and enjoy riding it enough to keep. :O) Thanks again for the input.

RE:AGE / VALUE:Worth restoring? posted by Larry "Boneman" Bone on 7/26/2011 at 7:18:28 PM
Absolutely. A good solid cleaning up. Oiling. Greasing. Get her as pretty as possible whilst retaining as much of the original finish as you can....

Then.... RIDE it. I almost guarantee once you get it up and running and rolling once again.... the style and grace will once again captivate you. Truly an elegant machine. I dearly love mine. There's truly nothing like the ride of a 28" wheeled, genuine British Roadster.

"The DL-1. An elegant machine from a more civilized time..." - OK so I'm paraphrasing... but you get the idea.

Keep us posted. We here LIVE for exactly this kind of situation.

RE:AGE / VALUE:Worth restoring? posted by Cliff on 7/27/2011 at 5:57:30 PM
Third pic is from the down tube/seat tube. There is a partial decal of some sort here that says "Raleigh Indus" and then the numbers 20. I'm not sure what the rest of this decal says. Does anyone know what the whole thing is suppose to read, and if it means anything?

RE:AGE / VALUE:Worth restoring? posted by David on 7/28/2011 at 4:38:36 AM
Rims: the rust doesn't look too bad. Brakes will remove much of it. You could clean it up with Naval Jelly or something like that, but there's not a whole lot you can do (who cares?)
Saddle: it's been left in the rain a few too many times. I'd apply Brooks Proofide (or maybe another beeswax leather preparation) to the TOP and use it. If the cracks look like they're gonna rip all the way, find a decent or new Brooks B72 saddle.
Sticker: "Raleigh Industries 2010" It's a sticker meant to impress the buyer with Raleigh's "high quality" steel tubing. Not anything special, really.
Have fun with it!

Yeah, you've a bit of work cut out for you. Alas... the chrome in the 70's.... at that juncture they were trying to pull as much money out of the machines to compete with a wave of ... "economical" machines from Asia, etc.

Still... you've a challenge there and catch and clean up all that stuff now and you've a machine that will serve for many years to come.

Not to mention the gaggles of slack-jawed gawkers that congregate around these machines when parked in a bike rack. I do get such a chucke at the "Rolling Cloud" riders at work that just stare at mine scratching their collective heads...

I think it's the rod brakes that utterly dumbfounds most of them.

Thanks again guys for all the suggestions. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I have started taking it apart to see how clean most of it will come with a little elbow grease, but considering I've got some other bikes I'd like to work on, I may either part this one out or sell it as is when I'm finsihed going over it. I will say this, every part on it, including the tires and tubes, seem to be all original, nothing added or taken away, other than two brake pads.....at least that I can see so far. It surprised me when I took the tube out of the front tire and seen that the Raleigh name was on it, and was stamped "made in Austria". Thought that was pretty cool.

RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:Worth restoring? posted by Chris on 7/30/2011 at 10:07:59 AM
please sell it complete. You ask us Is it worth restoring? I reply: Is life worth living? that bike is worth getting to know by riding. It's a world famous, well known, beloved little gem of a bicycle. Those Austrian Semprit tires are wonderful tires.

companies had their names put on lots of things they didn't directly make themselves suppliers do that for companies they work under contract for all the time.

AGE / VALUE:Dunelt posted by: Ro on 7/17/2011 at 8:17:35 PM
I do not know much about bicycles. I just found a Dunelt bike and would like to know how old it is. The head badge says Dunelt Cycle Co. Birmingham 40, so I think it must be from before 1950? I read that the badge changed that year to read Nottingham. Unsure about all this. A quick try with google has turned up no dunelts that look like this bike. It is a single spoeed and the frame has 2 swoopy bars that end up being what the back tire hooks onto (great description i know) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also there is a serial number on the left side of the frame where the back tire is hooked on.

Azita Ghanizada star of Syfy's alphas and tv 's hottest superhero photos by Chris Fortuna

This bike, is good only for parts. I love the adjustable front rack for size 26 to 28 inch wheel. A bit shabby but Maxim readers don't look at the bikes much.

Her rear tire is flat and I'd love to see her try to ride the bike in those shoes!
We are seeing more vintage bicycles, English 3 speeds in ads

Low Rider magazine ( cars) is interesting to see for me, as the gals are pearched against many of the vintage Chevrolet cars my Grandfather drew on the draftsman tables at Chevy before he went on to design at Cadillac. I recognize the particular cars because of the onion skin drawings, blueprints and various drawings of my grandfathers collection. I want to say: Honey, get off of the car!

I see and ride in here, some of the very cars he did. Especially this one Chevy and a black cadillac I also rode in, I showed him the drawings of his car and the guy flipped out. It is mind boggling, the room spins. The bikes are fun, the car stuff is mind boggling, spooky. "Chevy Runs Deep" I said to man on the phone. It's the current ad campaign. John Deihl asks in the Harley Earle commercials: "Why does it have to be a car?" Not all of it was. Houses too!
The $15,000 to build model pedal car Corvette is back at The G.M. Heritage Collection on display on a table. It is not for sale. "There is a pedal car in the attic" she says to me. I know the attic, "beyond the attic!" mom said we removed the bedroom wall there it was, a gift, back then to my grandfather from Harley you see grandpa designed at Chevy before promotion on to Cadillac.
The Cadillac pedal car version is more stunning, that is in private collection.

Some things like the maxim piece you stumble on by accident, some was family legacy, some hunting, luck and hard work. The embodiement of a huge chunk of Americana itself is weighty to bear and witness.

Pierce Arrow Supercar: 24 cylinders, ten liters (on you tube) take a look.

$100,000 cashiers checks and flatbed trucks idiling are not enough, "Cadillac," he sniffed in disgust Francis wanted the vintage Pierce Arrow restored in Switzerland and there were important potential buyers with ability to revive the very brand! they wanted it. They got it, Gold plated foot rests and all. From the hermit who ate stale food found in dumpsters behind foodmart. Francis's daddy bought the Pierce and it sat in the garage for decades while he collected bikes, parts, car parts and hunted scrap metal and lived in a 40,000 shack in Milan. gold coins in the floors and money stashed. Poor, crazy, old man, eccentric like hell!

I'm ok with the Pierce in Switzerland (not George who collects Auburn and Cord he was mad at me) and the bikes were fun and rare.

it's not the Mothman, it's just Chris! dude, you had a Raleigh Competition in full view in the back of the truck with that scrap refregerator. He flew you say?

I saw something I can't explain in the marvelous white fluffy clouds two close objects not a plane, the turkey vultures don't soar that high and the jets make a noise.
just stay up there and away from me, ok?
