Can anyone tell me more about my bike?

Hi - I bought this bike about 13 years ago, and it's been a steady love. It's a Raleigh 1 speed, and I don't know anything other than that - I have no idea how old it is. It's also extremely heavy. Any info would be awesome, thanksSmile

Well you say around 13yrs ago, here is a link to get you started in the right direction! http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/Bikes.aspx?Year=1998&Brand=Raleigh . Looks like a Beach Cruiser of some sort to me.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

The saddle and matching grips point to it being a nicer model. I can't tell by the pic. Is there a model name on the top tube?
