Coal Buster in Snowy New Jersey, USA
Here is a very nice off road, Winter ready R20.
The bike was completely stock when I got it except for the seat.
Here are the mods I’ve done:
Overthreaded the bottom bracket to standard 24tpi and installed Shimano UN72,73mm length.
Right now it sports a SR Custom crank from a 1982 Trek 412.
The cover photo shows a no-name BMX crank.
RST Capa front fork with threadless Aheadset.
The steerer comes separate, also from RST
Cannondale MTB pedals.
Handlebars are off of a Trek hybrid.
Specialized front hub, and front and rear wheel and tires.
If you think you have a great photo for our front page, post them in the Gallery with some info about your R-20. Happy snapping!
At one stage, the "Twenty" was Raleigh's biggest seller. Raleigh's survival through the cycling slump of the 1970's can be largely attributed to the Twenty and varient models. It was also sold under many of Raleigh's captive brand names such as Triumph, Sun, Hercules and BSA. It was also sold as the "Supercycle Twenty" in Canada. It was also built to a unique design by Morrison Industries in New Zealand.
