Raleigh 21

Raleigh 21" Ladies WW2

Regular price £995.00 Sale

This bicycle was built during the second world war, so it features a typical 'wartime finish'. Due to the war effort parts were painted black instead of the usual chrome plate. Every item on the machine is original except for the saddle and front tyre. The paintwork is in exceptional condition with a lovely depth of colour, and the various original transfers still present. There are some signs of age with a little paint rub on the handlebars and on the white reflector section of the rear mudguard. There is one small dent in the front mudguard, otherwise this really is in superb condition for age. Rare opportunity to own a piece of British WW2 history!
