This bike will...

... make me want to chug down coffee all day. Terrific color.

Wooo

This bikes awesome. Nothing like a classic Raleigh, looks alot like my 76' Sports. It's got the same paint job, the conditions nothing to compare though. Where did you score such a spotless bike?

Thanks Sheltron, picked up

Thanks Sheltron, picked up the bike from an old lady on craigslist for forty bucks! It was her late husbands. Lucky find.

Great Sprite

My favorite color in vintage Raleighs. What a deal you got!
