Hi everyone,
Nice community here. I rode a chopper bike when I was young, then a mountain bike, stopped biking altogether, then came back on a recumbent after so many years. After a couple of years on the 'bent I'm back to uprights. I recently purchased a used Raleigh but have no clue as to what model it is....could anyone help me identify it? I like its light aluminum frame and it's really zippy.

Thanks guys. I still ride the 'bent occassionally but my biggest peeve is that it draws too much attention from curious onlookers. I'm a shy person and my goal is to become invisible - you can't do that on a 'bent. And I get too much respect - crossing an intersection one time a vehicle saw me coming and dutifully backed up a bit to let what he probably thought was a handicapped bike rider pass. It's very relaxing to ride, though, I must admit, and if it was any more comfortable I'd probably fall asleep while riding. This is my folding-knife of a bent - a 2001 Bike Friday Sat-R-Day - in stow-away mode.
