Raleigh Lenton Tourist

 A repainted Raleigh Lenton Tourist seen at a recent bike swap. I really liked the blue color, but upon closer inspection one sees it is a repaint, with the original decals masked off, revealing the original paint was the more familiar green. It is a nice taller frame. Reynolds 531 tubing. The chainguard is not correct.

Rare Dunlop aluminum rims, 26 x 1 1/4" rims.

True, the chain guard should be an alloy one...very hard to find. Also, the fenders are regular Bleumels, I think. The originals would have had a "spear point" on the front of the front fender. Still, a good example of a pretty rare bike.
