This 1975 Raleigh women's 3-speed bicycle is in very good to excellent condition. My partner "inherited" this bike from a friend who bought it new in the late 1970s, but we are moving and can't take it with us. We spent about $100 in 2012 fixing this bike up to ride around Portland and rode it there until 2015 or 2016. Since then, it has been stored in various garages. It currently needs another tune-up and some love (new treads and inner tubes, for sure), but it's a great cruiser bike that is fun to ride short distances and it's a pretty cool piece of history. The serial # on the seat post is HD5028206, which indicates it was made at the Handsworth, UK plant in March of 1975. At the time, Raleigh was the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world and the 028206 in the serial # indicates it was # 28,206 made at that location in March, 1975.
