Raleigh Sports 3-speed bicycle


Raleigh side

The Raleigh Sports is a 3-speed bicycle with a steel frame. This particular model has a Brooks Saddle and fenders to compliment the set-up.

Built by Raleigh primarily at their factory in Nottingham, England, Raleigh bikes stood for high-quality construction from their introduction in the late 1800s until the 1980s or so. After that, production dwindled away due to increasing quality of Asian imports, more demand among the public for ten-speed road bikes and increased use of aluminum in the manufacturing process.
