Karl are you aware of a huge bicycle collector in Pune, who has more than a hundred classic and vintage bicycles, he used to be a ex-national level cyclist and so was his dad. I have only heard of this collection from all the bikers in Pune but never seen it.

Hi folks I have taken over this project from Hakim. I will post updates as and when i get started on the restoration. In the interim i will need to source some of the missing items listed below.

The model is a "Raleigh Roadster"

Handle Bar with Rod brake assembly
Sturmey Archer 3 speed Gear change lever and connecting assembly.
Original Raleigh stand.
Sturmey archer Reflector on the rear mudguard.
Front light.

Any leads in the direction, copies of Restoration guides etc will be highly appreciated. The Chassis no of the bicycle is 18700 BF. I am told by Hakim that it is a 1951 number. Again I am very excited to get working on this project.
