Sold: Raleigh Tourist DL1 24" rod-brake equipped 3-speed bicycle.

Note, this Frame is sold: Raleigh Tourist DL1 24" rod-brake equipped 3-speed bicycle

This is the classic rod-brake bike that Raleigh made for decades for people serious about wanting reliable transportation. It has comfortable geometry, rod brakes, classic Brooks leather saddle, large Brooks seat bag and a Sturmey-Archer AW 3-speed hub. It is a bike designed to last forever.

All the parts on the bike, including the tires, are original.

Sadly, Raleigh stopped making these wonderful bikes sometime in the mid-1980s. But we have one in wonderful condition ready for you.

We believe this bike was made for the British home market because it has a full chainguard. DL1's made for the American market had only partial chainguards. We don't know what year it was made.

The Keystone headlamp will need an old square European battery, which we cannot supply.

Brooks B66 saddle

Here's the comfortable Brooks B66 leather saddle. Here's what Brooks has to say about it: "The B66 is our classic offering for the city cyclist, designed for use with a traditional seat pillar. Beloved by Brook’s customers since 1927, the B66 is a firm favourite among casual touring cyclists."
