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.

About Me

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.

I have restored plenty of bikes. I just bought a Twenty from a friend because it looked like a fun project and I could tell that the bike was well made.

Hi, Have just finished my first 'STOWAWAY' It has new front forks with a custom built stem. The bottom bracket is running on the original cups with a square taper axle from my bits box. Over winter I intend to mill down the bottom bracket shell and have it re threaded to 24tpi. would appreciate advice on whether to mill it to 68 mm or 73mm.

About Me

I love taking old bikes apart and fixing them up to make them good again. Some I keep & others I either sell or give away. I live in the Portland, OR USA area, which happens to have many bike co-ops and bike shops with a large bike culture.

About Me

I'm a commuter and leisure cyclist living amongst the Pennine hills between Manchester and Leeds in the UK.

I wandered aimlessly into the local bike recycling centre and came out with a Triumph Twenty Traffic Master.

Attracted by the colour and half-looking for a Triumph (I had one as a kid), I rubbed a bit of the thick dust off with my finger to reveal a lovely deep blue mudguard. All the bike needed was the rear wheel relocating into the dropouts and a wipe down with a dry cloth.

The transfers are a bit mauled, rear mudguard is minus some paint, and the chainguard is missing, but for a 1978 bike these are mere details.

It's the most rock-solid folding bike I've ever ridden.
