    Raleigh Royal

    Whilst I was looking at the Rider brand ?? the same seller mentioned that he had owned a Raleigh Royal from near enough new . So once I had dismissed the Rider I asked to have a look at the Royal . Big mistake as I ended up bringing it home .

    Rider brand ??

    Went to have a look at a "Rider" branded bike this afternoon that was advertised locally . Can't find any info on it . Only stamping was 54 on the underside of the bottom bracket shell which equated with the size . Headset was "rider" branded and had the same decal . Seat post was 26.4...

    Raleigh Lorry

    Some of you might be interested in this new cargo/utility bike from Raleigh. Seems to tick all the boxes for a reasonable cost. https://www.bicycling.com/bikes-gear/a26551395/raleigh-lorry-review/ Not sure if it will be available in the UK though.

    Raleigh Ken Higgins Trike

    Hi - have completed my trike conversion. It’s a Ken Higgins Trike kit on a 70’s Raleigh (25” frame). It’s a bit of a homage to Ray Booty (if anyone out there remembers him - he was a phenomenal rider in the 50s/60s, Nottingham-based and multiple BBAR record holder as well as winning the 58...

    Raleigh Record Ace

    I picked this up on ebay today. It was up for £150 or best offer so I put in a bid for £130 and the seller accepted. The guy worked in a main dealer body repair shop (Which is where I collected the bike from) and the sprayer there had sandblasted the frame back to bare metal, gave it a full...

    Confusing Raleigh

    I bought a job lot of bikes, mostly for the Moulton, but as I began sorting out the others I became co fused by this old Raleigh. I believe the SA hub dates to 1939 but the frame number doesnt seem to tally with any particular year. It is udentical to most 1930s Sports models as far as I can see...

    I realise that l might becoming slightly obsessed with Vitus but hey this is different ,its not a 992. So l just bought the frame, forks, Stronglight BB and most importantly the seat post (of the correct size). My plan is to build it up not as a replica of Mr Kellys' KAS but as a sort of...

    Raleigh Lenton Clubman

    I picked up this Lenton Clubman earlier in the year, a bit sorry for itself but still saveable I think. From the frame No. it appears to be '48 or '49. Though, the hub is dated '56. It is unusual (to me at least) as it has a 3 speed Sturmey Archer combined with a 3 speed Simplex derailleur...

    How can I grease these old Raleigh pedals?

    I've got an old Raleigh Shopper, on which one of the pedals sounds quite dry when I spin it. I'd like to grease it but I don't see any outside cap on the spindle which I could prise off or unscrew to get access to a nut for further dismantling. Can anyone please suggest a method?
