Two Raleigh Fireballs featuring the short lived 5 speed internal hub and the Twin Shift 5 stick shift.

When we were kids these shifters were known as “Nut Busters”.

Both bikes are currently for sale on Kijiji Toronto.

    • These are just for reference. I do not own the bikes so they’re not for sale.

    • There should be a date stamped on the rear hub, i.e. 68 7 = 1968 July, for example.
