    Secondhand Raleigh Junior Rigid MTB: lemon or worth a punt?

    Could just use a bit of advice / reassurance to make sure I'm not potentially ending up with a lemon... Local recycling place has a Raleigh Max 24 junior MTB up for grabs for a pony. Seems to be a smaller version of the adult bike as far as I can tell. I think it's my size (or at least in the...

    Raleigh Royal. 23.5" Frame. Absolutely stunning.

    Parting with my 80s Raleigh Royal. Bought a few years ago and told it had only been ridden ten miles. The BB grease had turned to wax it had been stood that long. Cleaned out and new grease. It ran perfectly. Looks factory fresh. Looking carefully you might find a tiny mark or two. i can only...

    Raleigh ladies bike

    I've been without a project for two weeks, and beginning to feel glum. So here's my next one bought from the local bicycle project. It is a fairly basic singlespeed Raleigh in original complete condition. My plan (which will certainly change) is to clean it up, hopefully keeping the original...

    Raleigh MTB Bottom Bracket

    Being part way through resuscitating an elderly Raleigh MTB, from around 1990, into a Hybrid/Hack type bike, I will have to remove the cranks and strip, clean & grease the cup & cone bottom bracket, which has loads of play in it, my question is, if the BB has had it, will this be an English...

    Raleigh Pioneer Classic

    I picked up one of these the other day as I couldn't get on with my new road bike. I know we have some fans here and just wondered if someone could give me an age from this serial number sticker please?

    Raleigh Pioneer Classic

    So I've just bought my 4th Raleigh (I also have a Cameo, Courier and a Chiltern Lady). I cannot find much information on the Pioneer, especially the Pioneer Classic. Can anyone share any information or old brochures about this bike for me please? I believe its missing both mud guards and a...

    1980 Raleigh ‘Denim’ Eighteen

    Evening all 😊 Day 1. On checking my inventory, I actually found 3 R18s, each in varying states of decay. For one reason or another I selected a ‘Denim’ variant made in Nottingham in October 1980 (according to the frame number). The AW hub is also stamped 1980. So, I got it back to base and...

    1991 Raleigh MTB, thoughts please

    Massive long post, sorry. I have a Raleigh Amazon MTB from 1991. Frame and forks in good condition, other components tired. Paint and decals almost perfect, as I tend to look after things. It was my only bike for a while, then became the ‘holiday bike’ when in France, and finally it’s been in...

    Raleigh royal tourer rebuild

    I decided to start the Royal today, my initial inspection showed that all the bearings need replacing and the crankset is at the end of it’s life with non removable chainrings with bent and broken teeth.

    1978 Raleigh Medale; cosmetic work?

    Hi all Like the rest of the nation, people round my way are clearing out homes and garages and I’ve acquired this little number from the side of the street. Mechanically I’m already on top of what needs doing. However, I’ve never really worked on the cosmetics of a bike or vehicle. Unpainted...

    Help ID an old Raleigh bike

    I came across some old photos of an incredibly naive JoGLE that I did about 20 years ago, and it had photos of the bike. I have a love-'em-and-leave-'em relationship with bikes, I love them when I'm riding them regardless of how good or bad they are, but don't really miss them when they've gone...

    Raleigh Motus Tour- loud squeaking

    My partner has a Raleigh Motus Tour almost a year old now I reckon. She said it now has a squeak that's got louder the past month or so, and I tried it today and it appears to be coming from the front and is only when pedalling (generally uphill) so it's not wheel related as no noise when...

    1980 Raleigh Record Ace

    Some weeks ago I popped in to a Julian House Charity Bike workshop. I was out shopping with my wife and was just curious as to what bikes they had. I wandered around but nothing really caught my eye until I spotted some frames in a corner . I noticed one frame had Reynolds 531 transfers on it...

    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...
