Lot 337: c.1962 Raleigh 49cc RM4

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

Britain's 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, the majority of the moped range being built-under-license Mobylettes. This Raleigh RM4 moped has a single-cylinder two-stroke engine and automatic transmission. The machine bears a tax disc dated August 1971, presumably the last occasion it was licensed for the road. It is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this machine. No reserve.
