| Hi Folks,|
Has anyone seen this? Item number 110067853307. It looks and sounds genuine and I'd like to see anyone with an earlier AW hub.
Matthew - NMA, NRTS, HGACWSI,
| Could do with the rack off that for mine.Anyone out there got one they wanna sell that would be suitable for a 1934 Raleigh with 28" wheels?|
Matthew whats all this about NMA, NRTS, HGACWSI,? you a professor or something and did you put xmas lights and a tree in thit famous shed of yours?
| Well, Matthew, I have an AW-7 on my 1937 Raleigh Sports! Seems to be working fine, too.|
| Hi folks,|
Neal, I'm impressed, that's great. Are you planning a celebration next year '07, when the Raleigh is 70?
Pete, Bah! Humbug, Christmas lights. Bah! Not MY Auction, No Relation To Seller, Haven't Got A Clue Who Seller Is that's the abbreviations.
Matthew - Merry bloomin' Christmas!
| Matthew, hopefully, I'll have it refurbished by then!|
| Hi Folks,|
I really should get out in the shed more but if I did I wouldn't find things like this. On eBay look for Georgiou Vintage Parts ebay shop. Your jaw will drop. When did you last see boxed NOS Phillips pedal PARTS for sale? The rest of the stock is relatively gobsmacking too. There is enough to interest small wheel, chopper, schwinn and roadster riders too.
Just remember who told you.
Matthew - one man's NOS is another man's restoration completed.
| I've bought some stuff from this guy and he's reliable.|
| Hi, can someone help me to date my Raleigh.|
It's a Royal Roadster model and the serial number is:
NN 0029076 (maybe?).
Best wishes to everybody, Alessandro
| Hi Alessandro,|
Most folks here will know how to date your bicycle relatively easily. Look at the sturmey archer three speed hub and check the numerals on it. There will be two sets of numerals something like 11 78 which would indicate November 1978. There will also be letters such as AW or AG which denotes the type of hub.
Matthew - not interested in any other sort of dating!
| NN 0029076 |
N = Made in Nottingham
N = during the 14th fortnight(December)
0 = 1970 or 1980 (0 is the last number of the year)
The rest of it is the unit number
Hope this helps.
| This is the first time ever I have seen the recent serial numbers deciphered like this, but I believe it.|
A long standing mystery solved!
| Top Hole Wayne!|
Excellent detective work.
Matthew - amazed.
| Here's a sweet 68 Rudge...ebay|
| Check out this sweet Record Ace from the 50's! Item # 260065722474 1950's raleigh record ace. The seller is offering the bits for it as well! Nice to see one in original nick for a change! |
| That's at least the third time the seller has listed that frame at that same starting bid and the stiff shipping fee (and not particularly good photos). No bites the first two times, not surprisingly, but maybe the third time's the charm.|
| Odd this hasn't been snapped up... The 1948 RRA should have been called GOB or God's Own Bicycle. It's the bestest British bike ever. Of course the issue here isn't shipping or the starting bid on the frame and fork. The issue is finding, let alone affording, the very, very special components unique to this model. The last set of RRA pedals (which are delectable creations in alloy and steel with little Herons) on eBay attracted bids in excess of $350 and it still didn't make the Reserve. The chainset is hard to find as well and I still don't have the special stem (which was chromed 531 steel and was designed to match the special RRA lugs) on my '48. A pair of the RRA mudguards (yep, they were special too to this machine) fetched about $500 as I recall. Add a repaint and you're looking at a $3000 plus project in the making. Is it worth it? If you've never ridden an RRA, I can't convince you!|
