(Click for full photo)

1967 Raleigh Sprite Men"s 5-speed. Rear Sturmey-Archer S5 5-speed internal rear hub. All original and complete. Sturmey-Archer thumb shifter and Simplex top-tube shifter. Great paint and chrome . 26 x 1 3/8 inch drop-center rims. Leather Brooks B72 saddle. Rear Raleigh rack. Deluxe Raleigh pedals. Large 23 inch frame.


  1. This is super! I'm trying to fix up my '67 Raleigh 5 speed. It seems to have been modified in the rear hub area. It looks just like this one but it says it is a sport. Is there some place I can ask for advice? I'm not sure the local bike shop is really very knowledgeable on this rare bike.

  2. Your Sport almost certainly came with a 3-speed internal gear hub made by Sturmy-Archer. Google Sheldon Brown Bicycle and look for Raleigh. Have fun - they're great bikes!
