Three Speed Spotted: Modified Raleigh Twenty

raleightwentymodernizedRan into this lovely specimen at Trader Joe’s on Sunday. Yeah, Raleigh Twenties are not uncommon. But this one has some nice modifications, like a dynohub on the front (you can’t see the light in front of the basket) and a coaster brake three-speed hub in the rear. Stuff like this means you know the owner really likes this bike, and rides it a bit.

(I apologize for the mediocre photo, it was getting dark andI used my smartphone because my regular camera is being stupid.)

    My Twenty is still in the “not quite road ready” stage. In the meantime I thought I would share the SOTS photo of a modified Twenty in the wild.
