Robin Hood!

My friend Mark K. was over the other day and took the Robin Hood for a quick spin.

He pointed out that the left crank seemed off and on close inspection, it does seem to have a slight inward curve to it.

Time for the Johnson bar!

Here’s an earlier post on fixing a bent crank.

    • The date on the hub is your best source.
      I think the Raleigh Gliders were often put together from
      the parts bin.
      They’re all good bikes .
      Can also be dated by pedals etc.
