Renovating a Raleigh RSW

Postby laceoles » 2 Jan 2020, 12:09pm

Not exactly a top of the range sports cycle, I know, but this old RSW16 was my wife's pride and joy when she was given it for her 10th birthday in 1965. I'm trying to find individuals/companies who can strip it down, rechrome handlebars and rims etc, respray in an authentic colour and reassemble. I've found the decals and possibly the wide, white tyres. Can anyone help with information and contacts? Many thanks!

If you do facebook, try

Not my area really, but you'll probably find a whole RSW world out there.....!

Can't help specifically, but read my thread on the one I was given, and then donated it to the National Cycle Collection at Llandindrod Wells.
