I found a Raleigh "loop frame" 2030 tubing bike with 28 x 1 1/2 Dunlop roadster gold seal tires, Sturmey-Archer AW 68 5 hub with plastic cap oiler, Brooks B72 saddle. I don't see a serial number on the frame. Please provide help identifying this vintage bike.

Sounds like a 1968 Raleigh Tourist. A very desirable cycle.

MISC:   Information Requested - Help! posted by: Amy Akins on 7/28/2011 at 7:56:48 AM
I recently acquired an old bike and have been unable to find any information on it regarding potential age and worth. It appears to be a Fehling "Tornado" and has a very unique front fender with a raised pendant/flag that reads "Tornado". It is a woman's bike and in rusty condition. There is a rear luggage rack and I think it may be a three speed? I am anxious to know the model year and whether it is worth restoring or has any value in parts. While researching online I have not found much information about Fehling, except it is a German company that also made motorcycles. Any information would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks!

SWAP MEETS:   Americane' Vintage Track & Road Bike Festival - June 25th, Rochester Hills, MI posted by: Mark Agree on 6/18/2011 at 8:17:41 PM
The Americane' is coming! The Americane' is coming! Promising to be bigger and better with more vendors and more displays expected. If you have never experienced the thrill of riding an outdoor track, this is your chance. Low pressure, lots of room, and it only takes about 15mph to ride the banking comfortably.


The flyer is visible in PDF format via a banner link at the top of the Classic Rendezvous Main Page:
http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Americane-2011.pdf

...or in JPG format, which isn't as crisp and cannot be copied line by line, but loads more quickly:
http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/v/fujifish1/VintStuf/Americane2011Flyer.jpg.html
Click on the image for a larger view of Sue Novara pounding the boards in the 1970s.


And finally, for those that do not feel like clicking, text taken directly from the flyer is copied here below my sign off. If any more info or assistance is needed, feel free to email. Thanks...

Ciao,
Mark Agree
