WANTED:   RAY Bikes information posted by: Mark Raven on 8/20/2001 at 4:14:45 AM
Hello, I am trying to trace any information on RAY bikes (from the 1920's ish )It was my great grandfathers company so I would be very interested in information about them or the location of surviving bikes, If possible I would like to try to buy one !

Thanks Mark

   RE:WANTED:   RAY Bikes information posted by Geoff Rogers on 8/22/2001 at 6:13:27 PM
I have a 1958 RAY lady's three speed. It came from a barn earlier this year, one of several bikes I bought from an older fellow who had a huge collection of bicycles, mostly trashy ones! The RAY was in the very back of the barn, upside down with no saddle or handlebars, but I knew it was an old Brit, and that's what I collect, so I bought it from him.
It's silver-blue with black fenders, in "barn" condition: dust, light rust on the chrome, scratches, etc. It has its original Dunlop tires and metal stem tubes, holding air. Decals, etc. are intact.
I have never seen another one, so I had planned to keep the bike, but might be persuaded to sell it to a descendant of the company founder! I do have a lot of three peed bikes at present. Sure you don't want a couple of Raleighs or a Dunelt?
This bike was clearly built be Raleigh; it's all Raleigh components and a Raleigh-built frame with Raleigh lugs etc. I found a pair of 50's Raleigh handlebars for it, and probably have a good Brooks leather saddle.
As you may know, Raleigh bought most other English bike companies until 1960 when it merged with the other bike empire, Phillips. Then they all became Raleighs.
Email me offline if you want to negotiate on the RAY.
