These style bikes are offered as parts projects nearly weekly on ebay. I have seen brand new brand banana seats, long and short sissy bars, ape hangers, click sticks and even an original white walled fat rear tire.(20x3 or so) ... all offered in the last month. In Adelaide Malvern Star badged their bike as the "Chopper" (probably the Raieigh but a bit rich for this paper boy)
I had a Standish Stingray (aka Schwinn Stingray) serviced by Bert Standish himself.
Had a nice one about 35 years ago that started off gold with stermey archer 3 speed t-bar, ape hangers, banana seat & short sissy bar. Stripped back & sprayed it blue, ripped off the 3 speed shifter, lost the ape hangers for cowhorns, ditched the sissy bar for a small saddle and knobbly tyres for off roading. Eventually put a banana seat back on it & 6 foot sissy bar, with the seat so far back a tap on the pedal and the front wheel was off the ground! Sadly gone now...
I was actually going to do a post here about a Raleigh Scorpio from about 1978 that I've had lying around. I'm still working out if i offload it or shelve it until i get around to doing the tricky bits on it - saw a guy trying to sell a 'mint' one in the uk for 200 pounds,
It has original tyres and brakes, and a lot of the metal is in better shape than some of the others i've seen on the net, still got a bit of cleaning on it to do and there is a bit of rust damage but it's not too bad. Has some nice quirks and original bits all still on it, like mudguards, and an old lamp with a dyno, some original brake cable tube etc.
Ideally the spongey foam handlebar nonsense would go and I'd put original looking tape on, new seat etc. The major issue would be repraying it and replacing the scratched decals.
I can't really store it as well as I'd like to, and may be a while before i get organised if i keep it for show.
