2) Brake levers and push rods, linkages.
3) New rims and stainless steel spokes.
4) New Sturmey Archer front and rear hubs.
5) New chain case.

Off the beaten track....

It's been awhile since I last brought her out for a spin and not wanting the grease to harden due to lack of 'action', I decided to try out the woodlands in the East.

Cycling up the hardened mud track has been a breeze, thanks to the trusted Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub.

Stopping to smell the 'roses', I decided to take a snap shot of the surrounding area....

The new German bell is the latest addition to the Raleigh and it prove it's worth, in terms of ease in activating it and loudness...

Parting shot of the woodlands before going back the civilization and the tarmac....


Check out the bell in action....
