Early & Unique Raleigh Bicycles

1898 Raleigh No. 12 Lady’s Bicycle


I think it will br gratifying to you and all Raleighites to receive my testimony that after visiting some of the principle cycle factories in America and England, including some of the largest manufactories of cycle components, I have come to the conclusion that the Raleigh factory is better designed, and has more up-to-date methods of construction, than any of the others.
