Lettering and fonts
We took a similar approach to the lettering font as we did to the new logo. The font used by Raleigh in the 1970s is groovy and reflective of the era. But we couldn't find the actual font or get the lettering reproduced in the way we wanted. So we looked for a 1970s inspired font that would make the bicycles contemporary and fun and be in keeping with the logo. If you're a purist you probably won't like these changes, but we're delighted with the results.

The Wald baskets work well and they are the best match I've seen for vintage Raleighs. I put them on with zip ties. We have them on our 20s too. I assume milk crates are the most practical and affordable option, but I just don't like the look of milk crates strapped on all that much.

A great pair of 18s with fabulous attention to detail.The rear baskets also look very practical and stylish.
