1975 Raleigh Sports

This one’s gone to a new home. Sold at cost to a young woman I work with.

Earlier this summer she’d bought this bike. A 1969 CCM Galaxie.

The Galaxie went to her room mate and she traded up to the Raleigh.

Picked this one up today for a reasonable $100.00 (CDN). The young lady I bought from was moving and wants to buy something more modern.

She told me that she’d gotten the bike from a friend’s grandmother and once I started to clean it up I believe her. One clue is the trigger in the flattened position as shipped from the factory. Also the cables and clips are all original and the paint is cleaning up nicely.

The tires were replaced last year and the mechanic had put the front wheel on backwards as the bearing adjuster had backed out quite a bit.

Not sure what I’m going to do with this but I’m sure it will find a good home.
