Just thought I would tell you I bought John Wilson's Raleigh.  Thanks for posting the picture after your wife decided she did not want it.  I love it!

Hey Christopher, sorry, I didn't get to pull that drum brake out of my basement last night. I will be able to tonight or this weekend though. I'll snap some pics of it for you as well.

I'm looking for $250. The chrome is really special and bright.

I was planning on doing some more work on it before listing it somewhere for sale. As is it would be less. Nothing major needs doing and most things on the bike are seriously exceptional but f'rinstance the back wheel has been over some curbs, some spoke nipples will need to be replaced since they're frozen after 51 years and the rimstrips need replacing as they have welded themselves in. Time consuming small stuff. The bike seems to have done no more than a few hundred miles. If you have any interesting trades especially in the older bike realm I'll consider anything.

If you're still interested contact me direct @ wilsontaxi@yahoo.com
