MISC:   Womens Raleigh bicycle posted by: Marie on 12/30/2006 at 3:13:18 PM
Would like to know if anyone knows the value of my Raleigh biclcle, serial # 1917569. it says "Made in England" and has a metal decal on the front saying Notingham England. The chain cover was missing when I received the bicycle in the late 80s. It rides nicely, but does not look the best, blue paint is spotted with rust and has some dents. Still has original petals with the Raleigh emblem stamped in the hard rubber. I have kept it in the garage all these years but, I can see that was not the case before I had it. If anyone has any thoughts, please send me an email at mariecurrin@yahoo.com. Thanks, Marie

If it is turn of century it would have been either carbide or kerosene.

do you know exactly how to date an elgin. Maybe the light was put on later. The toolbox is wooden, the tires are 28 inch single tubes and the wheels appear to made of metal/steel. Could they possibly be metal clad, wooden wheels?
ANy help is appreciated.

thanks for you your response.
