    and steel pedals with nickel chrome steel spindles lightweight chainwheel similar to the Williams 1200 and the lamp bracket each bearing the Raleigh heron and R shaped wingnuts The Reynolds 531 handlebar stem was special to the RRA as well although the buyer could specify Hiduminium Others options included a choice of Airlite Harden Coventry Ultralite Solite or Airlite Continental hubs or Sturmey Archer rear hub gears Rims could be had as 26 or 27 x 1 Dunlop HP or at extra charge Conloy Asps or Conloy Sprints Brakes were usually GB Hiduminium with hooded alloy levers but Raleigh calipers and levers could be substituted The saddle was a Brooks B 17N with an alloy seat pin Finally the buyer could specify any colour lustre polychromatic pastel black enamel or Raleigh Green enamel Fork ends and rear triangle were chrome plated and the RRA has its own distinctive transfers In 1948 the complete RRA with SA AM three speed hub gear cost 39 9 s 4 d including the breathtaking Atlee era purchase tax of 7 9s 4d By 1949 the RRA included as standard the new FC close ratio hub gear with alloy shell or if desired the ASC FM or AM hubs In 1950 the Brooks B 17N saddle previously standard was replaced by the new B 37 with alloy undercarriage and the AC hub was standard By 1953 the RRA was out of production its demise hastened by Raleigh s loyalty to SA hub gears instead of the preferred derailleur gears The model was briefly revived in 1957 58 as the RRA Moderne with a choice of Benelux 8 speed derailleur or SA hub gears Of course Reg Harris rode a RRA track bike and gave the marque its last hurrah as late as 1974 when the

    alone not all RRA s had these now rare components As many RRA s were up dated by cyclists over the years their original RRA components were lost surely what makes an original RRA is it being with all these unique items In my time as a collector I have only ever seen one other RRA as complete and in as good original condition as this one but there is probably another one or two lurking out there somewhere Note the following items that are original to this machine 1 RRA chain set RRA head clip and bb axle cups the wing nuts that hold the mudguard stays are unique to the RRA Saddlebag support and lamp bracket off machine in these photos Brooks B37 saddle this is the lightweight version of the B17 with an alloy cantle plate stainless rails Note the matching RRA stem and the only original Raleigh Industries leather saddle bag that I have ever seen Whoever ordered this machine new took the trouble to specify Dunlop Special Lightweight stainless steel rims matched with an Airlite Continental front hub and a Sturmey Archer ASC 3 Fixed wheel Both wheels have Raleigh wing nuts Unique RRA stem and head set with oiler ASC gear with RRA wingnuts for wheel and mudguard stays Of the unique items on the RRA I think perhaps the hardest to find are the mudguard wing nuts the head set top race with oil groove and holes this wears out with shaped alloy washer and the unique BB concave fixed cup These wear remarkably well and always seem to be very tight Were they really welded in place And of course the long one inch dia domed top alloy seat post and famed alloy and steel RRA pedals which must have been the

    frames When I first beat a path to Ray s door he was using this frame as an every day hack cycle I endeavoured to convince him that I really wanted it and that it was going to be put back to it s 1956 condition What makes this cycle special Ray Booty s dominated time trailing for a period in the mid to late 1950 s but his lasting legacy are his two exceptional 100 mile rides I The first sub four hour 100mile time trial 3hours 58mins 28 secs this was a RTTA record there and back again Cycling magazine presented him with a unique Gold Medal for this deed Nobody else was to do this for another six years II Breaking the straight out 100 record in 3hrs 28mins 40secs this was the RRA record in one direction only This record was to stand for 34 years This is the actual cycle that both these records were broken on It is a non standard Raleigh Record Ace with road path dropouts made specially for him by the Raleigh Cycle Co Very few racing cycles can be tied so directly to a rider and a deed this one has a cast iron provenance and is instantly recognised in all the period photos The images show the machine equipment as it was when it broke the 4 hour 100 on fixed wheel The second record was taken using another rear wheel fitted with a Sturmey Archer AC close ration 3 speed which is also with the machine The only unusual equipment are the 7 Stronglite 49A chrome plated steel cotterless and the not too common chrome plated rail oval trade mark Brooks B17 Champion Narrow saddle Also note the rear wheel with crudely done crossed and soldered plain gauges
