I fixed this up about a year ago with the help of the kind folks on this forum. I'm the original owner of 34 years.

I think he deserves to be in the Raleigh museum. Its unusual to find people who have owned their bikes for that many years and kept them in this condition. It makes me wish I had kept my Raleigh Sunbeam I had when I was 7.

Nice Raleigh man......But I am confused....Are you 34 years old or the bicycle is 34 years old ;-)
Cyclostyle in style

The only thing to change is the saddle cover, or whatever is going on...

Bike is in pristine condition.
