1955 Raleigh Robin Hood

Found this beauty at the local swap meet about a year ago. I was going to scrap the frame because I was looking for a Sturmey Archer hub. By the time we got it to the car my wife had claimed the bike and requested a restoration. A year later and after a new paint job and a lot of polishing and cleanup this was the result. We’ve had to replace the wheels since the hub was toast. We also replaced the original brakes with modern stoppers. The wife LOVES the bike, we participated in the 24 hours of Booty charity ride in Indianapolis a couple of weeks ago. She completed 100 miles on this beauty.
