Raleigh Sports

Ben sends some pictures of old Raleigh Sports that he received from his grandfather. Not much other info than that. He does say "bikes" but I'm unclear if these pictures are of one bike or two.

2 bikes, 2 saddles and the cable clams on the top tube are in different places. I cant find Waldo but will keep looking.

I just purchased these "two" bikes from Ben. Neither one was in riding condition.. Bikes from afar look good but there are years of neglect caked on. I am in the process of cleaning up one of them and will post pictures as there is this post...which i stumbled upon!! So far i have taken both bikes down to frame.. inspected them and now i am rebuilding one with the best parts.. .luckly Ben'grandfather purchased two bikes the same color and year!! Both S/A AW 3speeds where in need of rebuilding.. one is up a running as the other is missing parts.. I should be able to post some pictures today. Merry Christmas!

OK so the hubs say "65" which means they are 1965 but now the frame serial numbers does not have a letter just four numbers.. time line wise this does not make sense because pre-60's bikes follow this but the color is from the 70's..Any thoughts?

Also...side note: I will have one for sale after I am completed with making it a worthy every day rider is anyone is interested!
