Vintage 1976 Raleigh 20 Shopper Non-Folding bike-working Sturmey Archer Dynohub

 

 

 

 

This is a non-folding Raleigh 20 Shopper bike with 20 inch wheels. The Sturmey Archer Dynohub is dated 2-76 [Feb 1976]. Both the front and back original lights work well when the back wheel is turned so the Dynohub is fully operational. It has SA twist grip gears. Twist grip and gear hub are in very good working order but the gear cable has seized and needs replacing. Fully adjustable seat and handle bar height.

Overall the bike is in very good original condition, but has been stored in a shed for some time. The bike has all original paintwork which does have some loss in places but could be cleaned up and restored/touched up. The chromework also has some surface oxidization in places, but could also be cleaned and restored. The tyres and tubes are OK but have signs of age and wear and really need replacing. The breaks need some cleaning up and new blocks.
