Raleigh Zenith bicycle

Raleigh Zenith


This elegant Raleigh Zenith ladies bicycle was made by the Raleigh Bicycle Company, originally based in Nottingham, who started manufacturing bicycles in 1887. Raleigh was always at the cutting edge of innovation. It is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world.

The classic Raleigh Zenith was built using Reynolds 501 tubing and has 10 gears, perfect for the hills. It comes complete with mudguards and a rack so can be used for everyday riding, as well as being approved for events such as Eroica Britannia. The bike is in very good condition. Paintwork and decals are original. This versatile beauty is the fun to ride all day, any day!
