1948 Raleigh

(Click for full photo)

1948 Raleigh Male 3-speed rod brake roadster built in Nottingham England. All original and complete except new tubes and the rear fender brace was replaced many years ago. 22 inch frame , measured along the seat tube. Many classic features on this old frame: bottom bracket oil port, early style lugging, bolted seat stays rear-facing rear dropouts, rear left side kick stand. Sturmey-Archer front wheel Dynohub generator works well. Sturmey-Archer headlight needs a bulb and the tail light is missing lense. Leather Brooks B66 saddle. Nickle plated chainring. Some of the rod brake parts are blacked out (post-war chrome shortage).
