This is a late-1960's Raleigh Sports DL22L ladies bike, complete, original, and ready to ride.
This was Raleigh's top-of-the-line bike model, built of quality steel with Sturmey-Archer 3-speed internal-hub gearing, 26" Dunlop wheels and tires, full metal painted fenders, pump pegs, integrated kickstand, chain guard with "Raleigh" script, original heron head chromed crank, original ivory fluted cable casings, etc. The shift mechanism is near the right grip for easy reference. A period-correct Mesinger sprung saddle smooths out the ride.
The bike is adjustable for saddle height, and tilt, handlebar height and tilt as well.
The chrome is in excellent condition, as is the paint… absolutely radiant blue!
The original Dunlop tires are still mounted, and the bike includes a complete set of Cycle-Rite front/rear lights from the period… powered as you pedal. All the lights are working correctly, with the proper bulbs and housings; high and low beams on the front.
This will delight any female rider 5'4" or taller. Would make a lovely gift, and can be used for general commuting, path riding, or participation in your local throwback/tweed ride.
Would also be fantastic as a movie/photo prop, shop display, or background piece.
We've also got a white wicker basket and large rear saddle bag, if desired.
