Raleigh Bicycle Company is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world, founded in 1885. For much of the company's history, Raleighs were produced in Nottingham, England, in what was at one time the largest bicycle factory in the world. In recent years, the firm has changed hands several times and is now owned by the Dutch Accel group.

We believe this lovely bike has less than 50 miles on it. It still has the original tubular tires. This Raleigh is currently part of owner Michael Wolfe's private bicycle collection. Space limitations are forcing Mr. Wolfe to reluctantly deaccession this prized member of his holdings.

  • It is all-Campagnolo Nuovo Record with the exception of the Weinmann centerpull brakes.
  • 170mm crank arms
  • It is made with Reynolds 531 double-butted tubing throughout, joined with chromed Nervex lugs.
  • Dropouts are Campangolo.
  • Seat stays are semi-wraparound.
  • Half-chromed stays and fork blades, chrome head lugs.
  • Brooks Professional saddle, GB stem
  • AVA tubular rims

Raleigh International

The relaxed geometry and generous fork rake make this a fabulous light-touring bike. The flat fork crown contributes to the front-end comfort.

The frame is built with generous clearances for fenders. Dropouts have eyelets for racks and/or fenders.

Mens & Womens Raleigh Sport 3-speed bicycles. Lightly used. The pair $750.00, or $375 separately.
23-inch mens & 19-inch women's

These bikes were made in the Raleigh Nottingham factory. They have Sturmey-Archer AW 3-speed hubs, also made in Nottingham. These hubs are far and away the most reliable multi-gear system ever devised for bicycles. There are many bike mechanics with long experience who have never had to rebuild a Sturmey-Archer AW hub. They are that good.
