1974 Raleigh Sports Ladies Bicycle

Last Updated on June 11, 2022 by FAB Jim The Cyclist

I didn’t just get one vintage bike, I got a couple.  This is the ladies version of the Raleigh Sports.  She is in a little better shape than the men’s bike:

I think it is pretty much the same bike, except for the frame with the step through top tube. I think she does have her original saddle which may be a Brooks vinyl. Other than the bad tires I haven’t found much wrong with this one yet. The chrome will need some cleaning up and a little rust on the fenders. I’ll be slowly running through everything to refresh it. Here are some pics of this beautiful bike:

I’ll post some more pictures after I have her cleaned up and on the road.

  1. I have this same bike, and I’m looking into lighting options where I can still use a basket. I think I’m going the vintage style battery operated vs dynamo route. Any suggestions?
