Toronto Stowaway

I picked up a cousin to "Medori", now "Haru" my new bronze Raleigh stowaway has a riding partner.

here's a pic of a similar bike, however Haru has white handles, and a matching white brooks plastic seat and pump.

Happy go Twenty!

So right on the heels of the golden globes, Sally Hawkins in her, "Poppy" role has teamed up for a third time with Mike Leigh.

Little Pixel, turned me on to this film for its wonderful opening scene where Poppy, who is soon to be the victim of random bike theft rides carefree through the city.

An interesting film which has a wonderful Raleigh Cameo.

Raleigh Twenty Supercycle Cousin

Apparently Raleigh also built a Twenty for Supercyle Brand, exactly the same frame, and,"TWENTY" decal as a Raleigh Twenty, but branded,"Supercycle" on the seat post.

I found of of these cousins while riding down queen west.

heres one for sale on Craigslist Toronto, ($200.00 is a little steep though to do a modification to this beautiful bicycle.) ** update, "tomtom" this beautiful bikes previous owner advised me that this bike has sold. I hope to run into it one day on the street.

P.S. If you happen to be the new owner of this bike, and have interesting adventure stories to share. please do.

Original or Crispy Raleigh Twenty ?

Original or Crispy has alway been a dilema when it comes to Kentucky fried chicken, and this dilema also applies when it comes to a Raleigh Twenty.

Unless you are fortunate to have two or more of these wonderful bikes, or your grandmother gave you hers that was stored in the garage for 30 years, the thought of adding or subtracting from these highly customizeable bikes is pretty common.

Medori is almost in original condition, her paint and chrome still shines... i'd hate to take her apart, as she needs no upgrades, however I am looking for a twenty to apply my "TWENTY FIVE" carrier design to..

To modify or not to modify your Raleigh Twenty...that is the question
