1969 Raleigh Sports

Just got it this past month on craigslist for my first bike since childhood. I had no idea on the heritage of Raleigh's til I started reading more about them. So to pay homage to the bike, I added some components that would really showcase it's classic features and history. Hope you like!

Thanks for all the great pics. A friend bought a bike from you and said I should check out you site. I did buy an Orange 1965 Schwinn Deluxe Racer, a few months ago, and if I get some decent pics and send them to you.

Where did you get those white tires from? Are they 26 x 1 3/8?

Schwalbe has white (creme) tires in 26x1-3/8. We stock them at Hiawatha Cyclery.
