The original Raleigh Twenty was in production in various forms and under various names from 1968 until 1984 and has gained a cult following from cyclists worldwide. This popularity can be largely attributed to the late Sheldon Brown, a legendary bicycle guru, who owned several Raleigh Twentys throughout his lifetime.
At one stage, the Twenty was Raleigh's biggest seller. Raleigh's survival through the cycling slump of the 70's can be largely attributed to the Twenty and it's variant models. It was also sold under many of Raleigh's captive brand names such as Triumph, Sun, Hercules and BSA. It was sold as the "Supercycle Twenty" in Canada. It was also built to a unique design by Morrison Industries in New Zealand.
