Brand-New 1939 Raleigh For Sale (Warning: No Campy Content)

No Campagnolo content in this post, but we think it's well worth the time to read it. Here goes ...

If you're a fan of classic bikes, and you happen to have $27,000 burning a hole in your pocket, check out this very unusual offering on eBay: a mint condition, never-ridden 1939 Raleigh. Click through to read the lengthy description, but suffice to say this machine has essentially been in a time capsule for the past 74 years. A real gem of a bike from the classic era. Why it was bought all those years and then never ridden isn't revealed in the listing, but it's a tantalizing mystery. (Question: If you bought this bike, would you ride it?)

Is it worth $27,000? Hard to say. If there's one person out there willing to pony up that kind of cash, it is. On the bright side, shipping is free.
