Interesting Raleigh 3 Speed

Blog reader Steve T. brought this one to my attention. Advertised on Kijiji close to Kingston.

A mid to late 50’s Raleigh with US Army markings.

I suspect the headlamp was transplanted from another bike as I don’t think the US used any British Bikes. I could be wrong.

Perhaps it was a movie prop.

    US Army decals perhaps from an old model airplane kit back in the day,notice the star crest on headlamp is upside down.star should have one point at top not two.As a kid we repainted a Triumph girls coaster and embellished it with decals from a balsa airplane kit,it looked quite convincing to us anyway.

    That rear dynohub would be a nice find!
