Hi all,

I'm selling a very rare 1951 Raleigh Tourist DL-1 Model 3 with a full chain case in excellent condition. The entire bike is original. I only replaced the tires, grips, and saddle with OEM parts:

Brooks b33 saddle
Schwalbe delta tires
Kool stop brake pads

The bike rides great and is in pristine condition. It has the original Raleigh green paint, which is unique compared to the typical black color found on most DL-1s. Like all vintage tourists, this model has 28" wheels and rod-activated brakes.

The exact model is shown here in Raleigh's catalog from 1951:

Feel free to message me for additional pictures. I'm looking to sell for $850 OBO. Thanks!

Chris

No, sorry. It was a barn find in New Jersey.
