Tks for the reply I think the colour maybe Tangerine but I can't verify it.

Head tube and rear triangle were damaged in transit. Unfortunately, the frame was bubble wrapped and not boxed properly.

Yes, I am really keen on the RSW also. They are fun to ride as well. Difficult to find tyres that are NOT knobbie. I am still waiting for Every tire .com they billed me 3 weeks ago and still no tyres. thanks Ed Also need an arc welder for the rear rack which is broken in one spot, plumbing solder did not hold up.

Yes you are right these oldies do seem to take a beating.
I've got quite a nice RSW folder I'll get a snap of it n post it.
It is getting to the stage esp' with rsw's is when you see one you need to grab it for spares if it's in a bad way!
Mountain bikes killed a lot of R20's & rsw's off! cheers

Actually the Twenty is too big for me and I am buying up the Stock of RSW on ebay. Will have knee replacement surgery for a better fit.

That's actually Ringo. Sorry, no backstory. As soon as I figure out how to post images I will show you my new Raleigh Folder 451. It's pretty much stock except for the Troxel mattress saddle and esge kickstand.

Yes, the barn was actually part of my dad's greenhouse near Emmen, about 65 kilometers from Groningen.

Thanks....the photo is of my grandfather standing in front of his auto repair shop in Boston. Don't know the year....only that it was before my time! He is my connection to tinkering with old bicycles.

Well I have bought a bike for bits for mine cost me 25 and I think I did very well every thing looks like brand new. the bike I'm restoring is mine. it was brand new when I was 12. So really looking forward to cracking on with it when I'm on rest days from work, really looking forward to it being back on the road.

Hi woodenshoe, I hope this is not BMW the car! Then you post your comment on the wrong blog.There are BMW bikes, one belt-driven. That imakes it special, nothing else. They have also some hoge folders 26" or 28" wheels. Very cheap looking and they pivot on th seat-tube. I have seen this before, but I cannot recal the make, probably some Far-Eastern make. The BMW comes in Ladies & Gents. Good lucj with your Twenty!
