Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


1975 Raleigh Sports Update

I gave this one a quick cleanup, repacked all the bearings and replaced the brake cables.

Total cost to date:

Purchase @ $100.00

Two cables @ $6.00

Master link @ $5.00


It has the short lived self adjusting brake levers that do seem overly complicated.

The only other thing I want to do is replace the brake pads.

    • They didn’t last long, a year or two.
