This 1968 Raleigh Sports is in great shape, clearly having been used less than the Sprite.
Her Raleigh: This bike’s number on the derailleur hub reads as “68”.
This past weekend, we found a pair of ‘His and Hers’ vintage Raleigh bikes.
They were listed on Craigslist as a set and were said to be from 1960.
They have the Raleigh decals that read “The Raleigh, Nottingham, England” and the words “Made in England” stamped in italics on the top tube and down tube respectively.
The number on this bike is “67”, so that would make this a 1967 Raleigh Sprite.The seller, however, told us that he’d had the bike converted from a 5-speed to a 3-speed when he first inherited it thirty years ago.
