This is a vintage 1968 Triumph Tenerife Sports style bicycle. This bicycle is an upgraded version of a basic Raleigh Sports: 5 speed internal shifting Sturmey Archer hub and chrome fenders. The bicycle is in great working order and will only need a bit of mechanical work to make it a daily rider. The rear hub will need an oiling and maybe an overhaul, but it still rides well. The cables are not in adjustment - both brake and gear will need to be tightened, lubed, and adjusted. The wheels are only slightly out of true and are rideable.
***note: does not come with a tweed jacket.
