This auction is for my late sister’s Raleigh Royal Lady 50cm racing bike. It probably dates back to the late 1980s/1990s – at a time when “Handbuilt in England” was a selling point! Knowing my sister, it was probably top of the range at the time.
It’s got ten speeds from a Sugino GT crank with “rat-trap” toe pieces, Suntour Cyclone M-II twin cogs and a 5 speed cogset = 10 speeds in all. It has Weinmann Symetric semi-automatic brakes with Dia-Comp brake assist, Weinmann 16×630 – 27”x1.25” alloy wheels and a comfortable Italian Sella Itallia Anatomic seat.
It comes with a Raleigh pump, mudguards and stand. There IS a cycle bag, but it is a bit faded & tatty. I guess the only downsides are that it still has original tyres & tubes which could probably do with replacing (inflated okay at the moment) and the foam on the alloy handlebars could probably do with replacing.
With a bit of TLC, this could be made into a really nice Lady’s bike. Collection only from Hutton, Preston.
Current Price: £75.00
