MISC:   Tour de France Bicycle posted by: Paul on 5/13/2002 at 10:26:52 PM
I was at an estate sale today and I purchased a vintage ten speed bicycle which has the markings "Tour de France" and "Olympic Sport" and I believe "Special Edition". I have not picked the bike up yet and that is all that I wrote down. Does anybody know about this, I have had a hard time finding any information out. Thanks a lot...

WANTED:   Chopper bike Specs posted by: Chris on 5/12/2002 at 10:15:39 PM
Hey everybody,
I'm looking for the specifications for a Raleigh Chopper bike circa 1970. I have a customer wanting to build one, and I can't find the old specs sheets. I have a lot of old parts, but am no longer sure which bits go with which bikes now.
Hoping someone can help out.

Chris T.

What parts do you have? Do you already have a frame?
Most common raleigh choppers had a sturmey-archer rear 3-speed hub with a console stick shifter.

They also came in 5 speeds (internal and external) and also 10 speeds.

I have a few questions about your Spaceliners. Does the
front light and horn work? Is there a rear rack and a
light mounted on the underside? Does the light work? Are
lenses intact for either of the lights? What is your city
and state? Thanks, David

Raleigh Sports, can't help it I love 'em. To me they are an icon, like the VW Bug or Levi's Jeans or Coca-Cola. They were perfectly quirky right out of the gate.

Sorry, just noticed "American" bike. Still love Raleighs though.
