Old School Raleigh Sports

Raleigh Sports
This bike stood out among her peers due to her vintage perfection. How many Raleigh Sports still have their pumps? Not many.

Lovely!

I'm not sure I knew that they made RS's in Maroon.
Nice to see an oldie but goodie in such good shape.

I have two Sports now with pumps--a '48 and a '69--though one of them isn't original to the bike. So far I haven't seen any for sale anywhere. Neither of my bikes gleam like this one though!

I am thinking of installing a (modern) bottle generator system on my vintage Raleigh. The old bottles were less efficient, but they were sure pretty. Oh, and that cute little tail light!...
