1978 Raleigh Sprite 10 Mixte
I found this beauty at a garage sale. It was in the corner and wasn’t really for sale. The guy said that his daughter, who was now grown and gone, had put a lock on it when she was a little girl and lost the key. Personally, I believed him. I had to cut the lock off. It probably sat in his garage and basement for 25-30 years. Everything is original except rim strips, tubes and tires. She cleaned up beautifully. Every bolt, nut and bearing was cleaned and lovingly restored. He wanted $20. I offered $10 and we settled on $12.
