I picked this up last year. 1985 British, Nottingham made Raleigh Chiltern. Belonged to a Church Warden and came complete with Dynamo, speedometer, kickstand, original pump and saddlebag. Immaculate condition. Rides so smoooth with easy smooth gearchange. A lovely town bike. A quality finish and surprisingly not that heavy. I was lucky and paid 40 for it. They are fetching 150 on e-bay now over here. There is also a ladies version. I think production was stopped soon after this was made and Raleigh moved overseas. A bargain I think even at 150 when you see the new cost of town/dutch style bikes now.
