ElDavid ~ Somewhere in Canada
Here's Ruth: I've always wanted a forest green Raleigh Twenty. I took my time looking for one in the colour I wanted as most were copper. I finally found one in the local classifieds after searching off and on. It was in good shape. I already had a Brooks B67 in honey brown for the bike, and I quickly swapped saddles when I brought the bike home. 7 months later I found a NOS set of Araya 7x rims at a local bike co-op to replace the steel rims that came with the bike.
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.
