Flying Jet and Raleigh

I like your web page and have recently returned to riding a bicycle. I
wanted to find a three speed like I had when I was a kid. So I found 2
on Craigs list. Mine is a 1956 Flying Jet made in the Netherlands, and
my wifes is a late 60's or early 70's Raleigh. Both just needed lots
of cleaning and polish. Since I have bought them I have added a
Sturmey Archer Dyno Hub and light set from an old Raleigh found on
C.L. and a new seat to the Jet. My wife's bike got a new seat and a 19
tooth rear sprocket to lower the gear ratio a bit. They are really fun
to ride.
