Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


1974 3 Speed Eatons Glider

  • I thought I’d document this 1974 Raleigh built Eatons Glider before I do any work. It appears to be a very original bike with minimal use over the last 42 years. It’s a good reference for cable routing and placement of the cable retainers. The tires are the original Canadian made Dunlops and the shifter was mounted in a flattened position. The work will be basic, repacking the bearings, replacing the tires and brake pads and general adjustments. It will be going to a former student who had her bike stolen last month….
