Raleigh Sports

Here’s an early 70’s Raleigh Sports currently offered for sale on Kijiji, Toronto.

It appears to have had the bottom bracket replaced.

  2. Anyways, nice looking specimen. I can understand why people go through the trouble of modernizing the crankset, but for me, part of the charm is that cottered crankset with the heron chainring. Now if they ever figured out how to make a modern cotterless set with similar appeal, I’d be for it.

    • Agreed. Despite the occasional trouble with the cotters I prefer to keep it original.

    That Raleigh is a 80’s model I believe, and that set up is stock. It possibly may not be U.K. made. I remember a couple that I repaired at a shop I worked at. It has the Rampar “R” on the fork, plus the fork does not have the Raleigh crown
