Lot 314: 1925 Raleigh 248cc Model 14

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

Britainís best-known and longest-surviving bicycle maker, Raleigh also manufactured motorcycles from 1899 to 1905 and from 1919 to 1933. More recently, the Nottingham company offered a range of mopeds plus a scooter in the late 1950s/1960s. A typical example of a vintage single-cylinder Raleigh, the Model 14 was manufactured between 1925 and 1927 and was powered by a 248cc single-cylinder sidevalve engine driving via a three-speed Sturmey-Archer gearbox. ĎMO 5983í has enjoyed a mere two owners from new and was last on the road in 1938 when it was placed in barn storage, remaining there, untouched, until 2003. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, the machine comes with insurance papers (1938) and old-style continuation logbook (1936).
