CaffineJean’s Good Will Hunting!
CaffineJean purchased this 1975 “coffee” Raleigh Folder at Goodwill for $38.77. It had lots of chrome rust but great bones and was very stock including the pump.
Her plan includes using this great bike as a fun run-about on paved golf course paths near her vacation home.This Raleigh Folder is truly a lucky find and I'm sure she’ll enjoy it for years to come. Like all Raleigh Twenty's, this one too, is a DieHard.
See the other pictures of the Good Will Hunting! Twenty here.
If you think you have a photo suitable for our front page, post it in
the Gallery with some info about your R-20. Happy snapping!
The original Raleigh Twenty was in production in various forms and under various Names from 1968 until 1984, and has gained a cult following from cyclists worldwide. This popularity can be largely attributed to the late Sheldon Brown, a legendary bicycle guru, who owned several Raleigh Twenty’s throughout his lifetime.
At one stage, the “Twenty” was Raleigh’s biggest seller. Raleigh’s survival through the cycling slump of the 70’s can be largely attributed to the Twenty and it’s variant models. It was sold also under many 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 Zeland.
