You could be the proud owner of this vintage Raleigh Sports city bicycle. Hand built in England in 1948 this bike features a 3 spd rear hub and full fenders plus chainguard. Perfect for the retro inspired rider or collector, this bicycle is looking for a new home and it could be yours. Includes frame pump.


The bike is in good overall condition and free of bends, crack and corrosion. The black paint still has a good luster to it with very few small marks and scratches to be found throughout the bike. The bike appears to be all original with the exception of the rear tire. Unfortunately the original grips are cracked and should be replaced if the new owner intends to ride this bike. We are unsure if the generator lights work.

This bike has been fully tuned by a seasoned shop mechanic with many years of experience. Then bike was test ridden and given a thorough eighty three point inspection by the owner. Finally the owner rides the bicycle checking steering, braking and shifting. After you receive this bicycle minimal adjustments and assembly will be needed to be ready to ride.

This bicycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
