The photo makes it look good but it is rather scratched with missing paint. Not sure it was originally a 3 speed. Can't even confirm for sure what model it is. Lots of things point to a late 60's early 70's sprite but they had racing handlebars and 5 speeds. It looks like a Royale too but I've only ever found one Royale on the whole of the internet and that was 5 speed too. Even the date on the AW hub is confusing - It has 2 single digits, both 7's.Super clean super tidy ,no rust lovely old 3 speed .
Looks very much like a females version of this,

My much rebuilt 'Raleigh City', originally from the mid 80s it had a similar chainguard and mudguards.[/QU
Nice bike! I do love Raleighs, they have character. From all my googling though, I found a picture from a brochure that is exactly the same chainwheel and wrap around seat stay as mine which dates it to late 60's but the previous owner of mine must have changed the handlebars and gears. Mine also has the different head badge that was used around that time.
Yes I have. And a few more if you don't mind taking a look? 3 are my bike showing the seat stay, headbadge and S.A pulley, and the other 2 are photo's of the only other bike like mine on the whole internet!The wrap round seat stays remind me of something, BITD they graced some of Raleigh's higher models, have you a pic of the seat stays / seat lug?
