Bikes 4 Sale

It's time to clear the shed...  I hate to go this direction, but I'm just running out of room.  If anyone is interested, please contact me direct at cwestergard -at - gmail - dot - com.

All the bikes are in really nice condition with the normal signs of age.  Rust is minimal if at all and these bikes have been stored in a dry indoor storage area for the last 5 years.  Saddles are period but not necessarily Brooks.  These bikes function in all gears as they should.  They really are in nice shape.  Prices are pretty firm.

  1. Hi,

    Very nice blog...I love your Raleighs and the detail you have written.

    I just finished restoring my 1972 DL1 and am in the middle of restoring a ladies Sports (his "wife").

    I am looking for a Raleigh Sports 23" bicycle with decent paint and if you run across one, please feel free to contact me.

  2. Hi Charleton,
    Thanks for the nice comments! I had a DL-1, actually both a mens and a ladies loop frame. They are great bikes. Yours looks fantastic!

    Here is a really funny coincidence.. I just bought a 1966 Robin Hood 23" Sport yesterday!! Robin Hood is one of the brand names Raleigh used, so it is essentially a Raleigh Sport 23". Not in the nicest of condition, but perfect for what I want to do with it, which is make it an everyday rider. I have a lot of bikes that are either too impractical for daily riding, or too nice. I'll be posting up on it soon.

    Are you located in the Pacific Northwest? I will keep my eyes open for another 23" Sport. You can reach me direct at cwestergard (a) gmail.c0m



Let me know what you think!
