About Me

I just picked up a pair of Raleigh Folders Tonight 9/13/10.  Not sure what I'm gonna do with them, only time will tell.  They're in pretty good shape, just need some TLC.  They are Nottingham 1974's.

Update: Sold the Twins and picked up a one owner 1971 R20 Folder needing a complete make over July 28, 2013. 

I also have a Giant Halfway folder and a Giant Expressway Folder.

My "Twenty" is from 1969 and I inherited it from my step-father.  It is now heavily modified and upgraded including new alloy rims, a S-A 8-speed rear hub, a S-A drum brake front hub, a pretty unique suspension fork, a sealed bearings headset, a high rise stem with handlebars and a gel saddle.  A speed bike it isn't but it is comfortable to ride  in an upright position and with the bin I have mounted to the rear rack I can carry a good bit to do my shopping.  Its a great old bike with a lot of newer features.

About Me

I'm a recent Raleigh Twenty owner. I caught the bug after reading Sheldon Brown's Web site.

In  November of 2009 I picked up a non-folding Raleigh Shopper  in rough shape on Ebay. It was intriguing because it has a nonworking SA dynohub, which I have working again.  I have slowly been collecting parts to do a restoration.

 Soon after I bought the Shopper, I bid on a folding Twenty  Super Cycle, the Canadian equivalent to the Raleigh, and I'll be darned if I didn't win that one. The Super Cycle is in a little better shape, but the wheels and brakes definitely need attention. Both bikes have been patiently waiting for me to complete other projects, but I'm making progress. I've taken up wheel buiding, which has proven to be a fun experience.

 

I will share photos of my restoration work.

Again, thanks for an interesting Web site.
