Vintage antique 1956 Raleigh "Sports Light Roadster" Mens 3 speed bicycle made in Nottingham, England.    21 inch frame.  Perfect for 5`5" to 5`11" riders. Very original condition. Original Dunlop tires that still hold air! Original Raleigh Industries kickstand. Features original front wheel "Dynohub" unit (stamped "4  56", most likely manufactured April 1956) which still works and lights the headlight.  Headlight and tail light units are original Sturmey Archer equipment made in England.  Rear tail light does not light.  Original heavy duty Westrick-type 26 x 1 3/8 wheels.  Brooks B66L leather saddle. A few other advantages of these 1950s Raleighs ( later discontinued by the early to mid `60s) are the bottom bracket oil port, plus metal fulcrum sleeve and pulley for the shifter cable (both changed to plastic in later years). Features an original Sturmey Archer 3 speed shifter and internal geared rear hub stamped "56   5" (May 1956).  Wheels roll straight. Rear reflector is missing. Handlebar grips are not original. Fork and left side pedal crank arm appear to be very slightly bent but do not really affect riding.  I`m told that some bike shops can straighten forks and that it`s not a major deal. The bicycle runs and can be driven.....brakes and shifting are functional. Overall, the bicycle is in great condition for a 56 year old antique. Priced reasonable to compensate for a few flaws.
