Here is a listing from the local Craig's list. It's complete enough and yet incomplete enough to conjure up lots of images of what might be:

Raliegh 1969 Touring Bike, Great Cond. - $130 Reply to: anon-7821971@craigslist.org Date: Wed Jan 8 14:18:11 2003

25" frame Raleigh with a beautiful Reynolds 531 tubing frame, leather saddle, etc. Kind of sparkly brown with aqua decorations.

Had to replace crank with new triple crank, so now it has 15 speeds, and had to replace rear deraleur.

A beautiful bike, a pleasure to ride, cuts through the air like a knife through butter. If only it were a tiny bit bigger for me, at 6'3".

It's a wonderful bike. It was in someone's garage from 1969 until 1995 when I bought it, and I haven't ridden it that much either.

The back wheel needs trueing.

it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
