1940s Raleigh Ladies Bike with Brooks B66 Saddle

An Original Raleigh Ladies 21" 3 speed Roadster possibly from 1940s SOLD

This was in poor condition when we got it, but was complete apart from the saddle.  see Raleigh Renovation The previous owner claimed that it was 1940s.  It has interesting cable brakes that may be from around that time however I do not believe the handle bars are original.  The front axle has been replaced along with the cables.  The frame has been pained with Hamerite to preserve.
There is a 3 speed Sturmey Archer operated by a modern lever.  The lovely original was not in working order so had to be changed.  The gears work but are not 100% as positive as a new 3 speed would be.  Vintage back rack is included.

The bike is now sold
