Wow, the "Raleigh Invalid" has a paint scheme to match the early 1970's Raleigh Record Ace (RRA), one of the rarest of the rare raleighs - not even sold in the USA, but i have seen stuff on the internet that some are chrome and and it was only offered in england. it was offered every few years to honor the historic raleigh racing bikes (as opposed to carlton "pro" and "international" models, which merged with raleigh.) it was a non-campy competition-level bike with a flavor very similar to the "Raleigh competition". very rare if thats indeed what the bike is.
where did this bicycle come from ??
