    A Raleigh Twenty Refurbishment.

    Not everyone’s cup of tea, but as there’s the square root of feck all else to do at the moment I thought I’d take this old shitter apart and rebuild it. It cost a tenner. Today I’m going to start the refurbishment of a Raleigh Twenty I bought locally for £10.00. Its a basic version of the...

    Any Raleigh Dawn Tourist owners on here??

    I've recently picked up an interesting, but as yet unidentified, Raleigh rod-braked 3-speed roadster. I'd hoped to have some pics up in the "show us your Raleigh" thread by now, but unfortunately an essential front tyre change has revealed the fork is a bit misaligned and needs some remedial...

    New use for old Raleigh head badge

    I have had a old brass Raleigh head badge that came of a Raleigh Merlin from maybe the 70s that's been in my spares box for decades ,so I have cleaned it up and made a pin badge out of it for the saddle bag of my Raleigh Lenton ,just a better use than possibly getting damaged in the box and...

    Raleigh Team Banana Project

    I finally picked this up today, it’s been outside in a back garden for 12 months which hasn’t helped but the good news is that it’s 100% original even down to the reflectors, water bottle holder and supplying dealer sticker. Originally my plan was to modernise it with newer components but now...

    Raleigh Lenton brake levers

    I have been experimenting with drop bar levers on my Lenton, the brakes work better and the hand position /comfort is better too, it also looks more in keeping with a drop bar bike, the original Lenton ones are just flat bar levers, but i am thinking of putting the original ones back on to keep...

    Brief Review Raleigh Strada Electric

    After my thread of do I really need an e-bike, I decided that the overwhelming majority was that it was a good thing. A couple of friends also suggested it would help my motivation. I ended up (not without some faffing) with a Raleigh Strada Electric - at 50% off RRP. Unfortunately it turned...

    Carlton Bike Letter S stamped under serial no.

    I've tried and failed to get a clear photo. The serial number is pretty faint as the frame has been resprayed. I'm also unsure about the first 0, which could be either a 3 or an 8. Under the serial number there is stamped a single letter S. I've researched into this but couldn't find anything...

    New Project. Raleigh Scorpio.

    For about four weeks I’ve been walking the dogs past a house in my village that has had this bike sitting outside and unlocked and unloved. Today enough was enough and I knocked on the door and asked about it. Before I could finish the sentence the nice man told me to take it. It’s another...

    Hi I'll give Cycle chat first dibs on this for the week - until 4th October. Chrome is patchy with surface rust. Frame is solid but patchy in places with paint chips etc. Mudguards have been rust treated and resprayed - they are rough but solid. Lots of character. 21 inch frame (from middle...

    SOLD: Raleigh Ascender retro MTB - Large 21" frame 26" wheels - Dewsbury, West Yorkshire - £15

    This is the working Raleigh Ascender which I'd posted about getting hold of a few weeks back. It's a 21" frame, so a Large although I can ride it at 5' 8" it's better for someone a bit taller. Almost entirely original, except for a replacement seatpost clamp and San Marco saddle. Dates from...

    Abandoned Raleigh.

    This forlorn specimen has been locked up near to me for weeks. Can anyone identify it. It has a 531 frame but the decals are a bit worn off. Just out of interest I may put a tag on it and if the owner fancies selling it I would be interested . The paintwork needs attention, and the gearing...

    Rear dropout spacing on a vintage Raleigh?

    I still ride my 1984 Record Ace and have always found refitting the rear wheel a bit trickier than I've seen TDF mechanics or You tube videos showing the process. In '86 or ' 87 I replaced the 27" Weinmann wheels with 700c MAvic MA40s on Campag Chorus hubs. Having a bit of a practice following...

    Beat the scrap-men: Raleigh Ascender MTB

    Having had recent purchases go wrong on me - an Orbit 531c which was rusted and seized, plus a carbon wheel which has turned out to have a broken rim - I was suffering a confidence crisis in buying used items. So, en route to Manchester velodrome I passed two bikes with other items, did a quick...
