monkster ~ Yorkshire England
Monkster has had the Stow Away for a few years now. He uses it every day to get to work, half a mile away! It's a 1974 he bought off eBay. It had a grip shifter with lower bars but he put a trigger shift on and higher bars. It's got Giant handlebar grips on and a gel saddle (the old Brooks was split). The Twenty is a 1975 he just bought off an elderly neighbor. It's as new as can be found! It has a working dyno hub and is in excellent condition.
If you think you have a great photo for our front page, post them in the Gallery with some info about your R-20. Happy snapping!
At one stage, the "Twenty" was Raleigh's biggest seller. Raleigh's survival through the cycling slump of the 1970's can be largely attributed to the Twenty and varient models. It was also sold under many of Raleigh's captive brand names such as Triumph, Sun, Hercules and BSA. It was also sold as the "Supercycle Twenty" in Canada. It was also built to a unique design by Morrison Industries in New Zealand.
