Looks quite interesting

We like this one a lot. Seller calls it an International in the “Item Specifics” section of the advertisement but otherwise doesn’t mention it in the ad copy. The matching pump and three (three!) water bottle cages are ace details.

BYOS (bring your own saddle).

Raleigh International with a coaster brake

Converted, but appears to have been done to a reasonably high standard. Opening bid isn’t unreasonable.

Our first order of business would be to replace the pedals and introduce foot retention ASAP.

1974 Raleigh International

ri $_57

It’s 1974. I live in California. I’m visiting my cousin in my home town in upstate New York. He says, “If I can borrow a bike for you, would you want to take a road trip into Manhattan?” That’s when I bought my beloved Raleigh.

It stills rides like a charm, so why am I selling it? I got Parkinson’s Disease and I don’t feel safe riding. Although I have friends with PD who do ride, I can’t. I got diagnosed six years ago, and now, after my wife’s urging (we need the space in our small house), I’ve agreed to pass it on to a good home.

What’s so good about it? It’s Retro, it’s Classic and it’s a nice ride: Model DL170, Raleigh International, 22-1/2”, a quality bicycle and beautiful. Reynolds 531 butted tubes, forks and stays with a chrome front and rear forks. CAMPAGNOLO RECORD components. It will still be around in 40 years. Check out this link to the original catalogue:

http://sheldonbrown.com/retroraleighs/catalogs/Raleigh-Catalog-1974.pdf.

More details about my bike: The bike is original, except for a few small things: I replaced the original rims. It came with sew-ups and living in Berkeley, I got one too many flat tires. The Brooks saddle, original pump and toe clips are gone. The handlebar tape is new. It’s always been stored indoors. As you can see from the pictures, there are some cosmetic issues. There is some pitting in the chrome and the paint has been scraped off in some places. However, the components are in very good shape.

Raleigh International porteur style bicycle

Thanks to our friend OD for this submission!

00q0q_h183PCoySbW_600x450

This is a vintage Raleigh International that I custom built into a porteur style bicycle. I chose some very nice components for this project and hence the cost reflects this fact. For example the lighting system, which is state-of-the-art and is amazing, designed & manufactured in Germany, (Schmidt Son Deluxe dynohub, Schmidt Edelux headlamp, & Busch & Muller taillamp). You definitely get what you pay for though 🙂

The following is a list of its components:

Brooks B-67 saddle
Campagnolo Super Record seatpost
Honjo hand-made hammered fenders
Velo Orange front porteur rack
Schmidt Son Deluxe dynohub
Schmidt Edelux headlamp
Busch & Muller Seculite taillight
Sturmey-Archer 5 speed internal hub
vintage Stronglight 93 crankset
Shimano Dura-Ace headset
Velo Orange Porteur handle bar
elkhide handle bar covers
3TTT Record 84 quill stem
Cane Creek inverse brake levers
Crane classic brass bell
Dia-Compe Gran Compe center pull brake calipers
Mavic Open Sport rims
Panaracer Pasela Tour Guard 700c/32 tires
Velo Orange porteur double kickstand

I have poured hundreds of hours of care into procuring each component part for this bicycle. I spent a year building her. She is a joy to ride and she turns heads everywhere!
The price I am asking is actually now less than what I put into this project (I recently reduced the price). It does not include any of the uncountable hours of labor that went into the build. I am selling in order to help fund the purchase of a expedition touring bicycle.
