Its a new year, and while waiting for the bells to chime, we kept ourselves entertained by munching on left over sergios pizza and watching the Son of Rambow, which featured some great Raleigh Cameos, of Raleigh Twenty's, Raleigh Stowaways with trailers, and Raleigh Choppers, it was a very entertaining britsh flick which had rave reviews at this years Toronto International Film Festival.
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 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
