WANTED:   Raleigh RRA Moderne Mystery posted by: D. C. Wilson on 1/18/2003 at 5:39:58 AM
This mystery needs solving...

At issue is a gold and black Raleigh RRA Moderne with Sturmey FM four speed, Dunlop Super Light Weight steel rims (old Dunlop Road Racing tires still on rims), proper drops, Hiduminium side pulls brakes, and a dynohub in front. Quite the clubman's bike.

The Sturmey says 58 for 1958. The S/N under the seat implies 1957-58, according to Raleigh S/N chronologies. A web article discusses the RRA Moderne as a two year resuscitation during 1957-58 of the long running RRA after a two year absence from the Raleigh lineup (it was dropped permanently after 1958.

The mystery is: the man who donated it to the thrift store where I bought it claimed that he bought the bike in England in 1942 when he was stationed there during WWII. What's more, he said he believed the bike was actually vintage 1936.

Can anyone make any sense out of this? I've read that Raleigh's numbers sometimes are inconsistent with the Raleigh S/N chronologies.

Comments or advice anyone?
