I found these two beauties for sale on Kijiji and was thrilled to find that they looked even better in person than they did in the ad!
They were purchased new in 1980 buy the seller's parents, and, aside from a couple of surface scratches, they look as bright and shiny as the day they were made. My jaw literally hit the floor when I first set eyes on them and I knew that they were coming home with me!
Everything on these two is original, including the tubes, tires and tire pumps.
They ride like a dream and I have already claimed one as my daily driver.
I feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon these two beauties and I'm thrilled to be able to give them a good home!
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!

The Raleigh Twenty
was in production in various forms from 1968 until 1984, this bicycle has gained a cult following from cyclists worldwide. This popularity can be largely attributed to the late Sheldon Brown
, legendary bicycle guru, whom owned several throughout his lifetime.
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.
