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.

Cleveland Model 29 bicycle

Beautiful Cleveland mod. 29 bicycle recently offered for sale by a collector at a recent swap meet. Made in toledo, ohio.

 Shame it had modern Allen bolts for dropout adjusters, rather than finding something more appropriate looking.

Brooks 1940s leather bag

 J.B. Brooks & Co leather bag. stamped 1943. Interesting that it was made during wartime, I wonder what the production level was like at this time.
very cool find here at the shop today, I wonder what bike we are going to couple it with. Straps to the toptube and opens out.
