Default Re: 1955-64? Raleigh Sports :: Dump Find

I was just going to say I think the bike is newer than 55-64- in that day, the frame decal would've been different and in a script similar to the head plate on the steer tube- judging by the decal I would say about mid-70's so the '73 thing might be accurate-

I worked in a bike shop in the summers of '73 and '74 that sold Raleighs and that frame decal and paint color looks that period to me. In the '60s three speed "English Racers" as we called them, were most often painted black. They typically had a really ornate frame decal- almost Victorian.
