Letchworth Garden City
She was bought July/August 2012, from eBay locally for just £10!
In all honesty she did look a state when I picked her up, but a wash and a polish was all she needed to put some life back into her original paintwork.
Other than that, two spokes (broken when purchased) have been replaced along with the seat.
I have sourced and fitted the rear holdall and pump.

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 sold also 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.
