Charlie's Mom's 1959 or 1960 Raleigh Sports

I was viewing your bike pictures on your site. I live by Lake Nokomis, and just ran across these pictures on my Mom's 59/60 Raleigh (I'm on the back), in 1961. I loved these bikes, but they got sold at a garage sale when I was in college.

1966 Hercules

1966 Hercules, made by Raleigh as I understand. I paid $60 for it, and have put a few hundred into getting the look right. I really enjoy the odd chainguard and the little baby rear fender. It also has a grip shift as apposed to the standard issue Sturmey-Archer thumb shift. Hope you enjoy.
