And now for some vintage bikes. Raleigh is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world, very British, established in 1887 in Raleigh Street, Nottingham. On the short list of bicycles I still want to own are their Twenty folder and the Lady Sport, both of which are thought to be very solid choices for a vintage bike purchase. If you watch "Downton Abbey" or "Call the Midwife", chances are you've seen a character riding a Raleigh. Here are a few nice ones. They can still be found on eBay and other second-hand markets.
