Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles

Modified Raleigh Tourist.
Bought this one in Hamilton Ontario last month just
to have a bike to ride around while I was working there. Someone had removed the rod brakes and replaced with a Shimano coaster hub and an old Canadian 28 x 1 1/2 rear wheel. I worked on it today and it cleaned up real nice. Steering was tight and found an extra bearing top and bottom.

    I am a huge fan of the old English Roadster type bicycle; comparatively long wheel base, 1 1\2″ tires, relaxed frame geometry.
    I covet that bike…… Good score, so jealous!
    Also, looks nice and big, Greg, what’s the stand over height?

    Wudga pay for that one?

    • I’ll have to measure the height. Paid $150.00
