1968 Raleigh Sports

Joe sent photos of his 1968 Raleigh Sports with this note:

1968 Raleigh Sports given to me by my son. This bike slowly accumulated all its parts from here and there. It was missing a chain guard for a long time. I was fortunate to come across a Raleigh parts bike on CraigsList for $40 that had just about everything I needed, including the Heron headlamp bracket. The best part is a Brooks leather saddle that is contemporary with the bike, although I don't see one like it in Brooks catalogs, so it may be a discontinued model.







His Flickr set shows some of the transformation of this bike from mismatched to magnificent. Go see them:

Thanks for the pics, Joe.
