So, I'm helping the folks out yesterday and head out to the transfer station to dump some stuff. I went to the holding area where they keep all the metal scraps to throw away our old ping-pong table frame and low and behold I see an older lady moving around a couple bikes and then she leaves.

I walk over to check one of them out and one is a 1969 Raleigh Sports. Everything is stock, it has a Sturmey-Archer 3 speed hub, Brooks saddle, original Dunlop tires. This should be a fun restoration project and it should make a pretty pimptastic beer-run/pit bike.

Sorry about the pics, I'll try to get some better ones when I'm done with the project.
