Raleigh Tourist , Now listed on EBay Sold

I am not certain of the year. Serial #NS0034844. Nottingham head badge. Sturmey Archer hub stamped AW 81. The last one of these with the full chain case I saw sell on EBay went for 547.00. The full chain case model is less common than the half chain guard model. I will leave it posted here until I return from vacation on April 6th then to EBay if it hasn't sold. That is probally the best venue for this bicycle. Bicycle is in overall good condition. I cleaned and lubed the rear hub and overhauled the headset, bottom bracket, and front hub. Brooks B66 is in excellent condition. Some pitting of the chrome but looks nice. New tires & tubes. Rides good.
