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.
