UNTOUCHED ORIGINAL 1969 MK1 Raleigh Chopper
Believe this to be a special edition one, due to the fact of space blue metallic paint and chrome chain guard.
Obviously you pro's will know and I am sure you will let me know.
But I will do my best to describe it.
The only thing I see that is NOT original are the Schwinn blue sparkle hand grips and Schwinn front tires.
Tires hold air and are not cracked or dry rotted.
Back tire -Uniroyal Fastrak Nylon Slick 20 x 2.125
Front tire - Schwinn Spiffire Nylon 16 x 1.75
Sturmey Archer rear hub dated 6-69
Front stamp date? 0537311
TCW 3 speed
Early Pedals w- no reflectors.
I believe the cable for this shifter needs to be hooked up.
No cable of brake pads for front brakes.
Chopper has road rash on frame, sissy bar, and handle bars.
Missing shifter knob.
One spot might need a weld from pedal hitting frame (see pics)
Seat has some tears to front, has reflector on back of seat.
Front emblem 1/2 broken off, and kick stand missing.
Rims look in very good condition along with crank & pedal arms.
i did have to remove one of grips to slide handle bars off for shipping
Let me know if this is a special edition one because I would like to be sure!
Needs restoring but you dont find these everyday!!
I MIGHT BE ABLE TO SHIP THIS BOXED PRIORITY BUT I WILL HAVE TO DISASSEMBLE AND GET IT UNDER SIZE LIMIT FOR PRIORITY ALSO FOR INTERNATIONAL
Let me know how you want me to ship this, UPS Ground,Greyhound - But will take me a little longer to prep this for shipping, so please be patient!
I am located in Thompson, Ct
