    I love old raleighs. They are awesome, and so crude at the same time.

      Alex,

      By “crude” do you mean “fart joke crude” or “stone tools crude”? :)

      Just curious.

    Old Raleigh`s Rock! And I mean as in Rock and Roll (pun intentional)

    I took it as stone tools.

    Raleigh started building bikes in the 19th Century and liked sticking with the old, trusted ways.

    I have an old Raleigh roadster that weighs in at 52 pounds, but gawd, what a cool bike to ride.

    That picture makes me so nostalgic! I have an identical grey Raleigh Record in my shed in Australia. I bought it new in 1976… what a blast from the past.
    Thanks John C.

    I just grabbed an old Raleigh Record Frame. It’s a 1971. Any idea what size the original tires were? THANKS!

    I saw your picture of 1972 gray raleigh record with 10 speed. SAME as My father’s 1971 gray Raleigh Record 10 speed!! I still have it with me in garage for 40 years. My dad’s vintage Raleigh record look brand new! NEVER scratch or rust at all!! this is 1971… very rare All REAL original bicycle.. Never replace tires ever since 1971. you image that?
