Hello all

The wife is in need of a ride for the summer and a mixte would be sweet. She's going to need a small frame, something to fit a 5'4" young lady. So if ya got something your looking to let go let me know.

Thanks
Christopher

I'd LOVE to see a pic of the Chrome Raleigh!

I have a 19 1/2 inch ladies Raleigh B-line 3speed from 1962, full chrome. Very nice chrome. Nice bike but if you park it anywhere I can guarantee it will be the first stolen. If you want something special and tweed it's for you. And it has the smaller, flatter North Roads bars the way they used to be which are great for smaller riders.

I'm not sure about protocol here & don't want to hijack CPs thread. Also if you're thinking in terms of making me an offer I think CP has first refusal, at least for a few days.

Shoot me an email to wilsontaxiatyahoodotcom and I'll be happy to return you a photo of ye olde Raleigh.

Here it is. Come take a look.

Hi 

I have a black Puch mixte that I am looking to sell. I dont have a pic yet, but will soon. I would guess late 70s early 80s vintage.

It has upright bars, Schwalbe tyres, black Planet Bike fenders and a black Brooks B17S saddle. I also fitted a modern rear rack, obscured by a vintage wicker basket. It looks very cool and is functional.

I built it up 2 seasons ago, but after my lady got injured it has not been ridden. I would say it has under 200 miles on it after its resurrection.

I am looking for $250 for it.

Thanks

RB

Here is John's super sweet Raleigh bike, the badging is for a department store in Boston Ma that I imagine is now defunct.

So far no dice on the right bike at the right price so well open the floor to any internal geared 3 speed, cruisers or old 50s-70s bikes. Of if anyone has a prewar Elgin 28" frame set they don't need I'd be game. :)

Thanks for the help everyone!

If anyone wants a project mixte, make an offer:

It's rideable (although I'd replace the saddle first), but more could be done with it to fix it up.
