More Junk! 1972 Raleigh Sports
Picked this up today. It actually looks much better in the photos than in person, but it wasn’t expensive and quite complete.
-Paint is good and will clean up
-Original ribbed cables (all work well
-Plastic trigger face not cracked
-Period saddle bag attached
-Brooks vinyl saddle OK
-Interesting period wheel lock
-Rims have surface rust but may polish out
-Rear hub is missing the oil port (Bolt in it’s place)
My plan is to strip the bike and re-assemble. More than likely I’ll pass it on to someone at cost (Bike + parts). Someone contacted me last week looking for a bike so it may go to him. He’s a little put off by the colour, but I like it.
