The Raleigh bicycles are once again available for a couple of years now. I was elated to find the "classic men" in a shop in Kerala last month. So, when I returned to Lucknow, I enquired and it is available on order. The dealer did not appear keen to get a green and says black is available more easily. I think the suncross company of Ludhiana is making it available. Parts are coming from Srilanka etc. The days of CCIL Asansol are history in our times.

I think I will also look for a Town 26 SS model soon.

The Humber and Robinhood are nonetheless nowhere to be traced. Eternally gone :(

The last Humber I saw was in early 90s in my home town, but it was in good condition then.

Vip.

I found this Driving Licence for bicycles. Gondal State used to issue the Driving licence to bicycle owners back in the 1930s. This Driving Licence is in the Gujarati Language. I "tried " my best to translate it into English.
