Description


1961 Raleigh Runabout RM4

Presented today in its original but excellent condition. Only the minimum cosmetic work has been carried out upon this RM4. A seat was required and was manufactured to original pattern. Re-commissioned and running superbly, new tyres, carburetor sonically cleaned, new plug, fluids, etc. Supporting invoice supplied along with original tools and handbook. A quick wiz round on the pedals and the little 49cc two stroke motor bursts into life leaving you in a cloud of two stroke fumes! Off you go, if the winds in the right direction I am told 35MPH can be achieved, although not fast they do make you smile. The Raleigh Runabout was born out of the need of cheap and economical Post War transport. The first Model the RM1 was launched in 1958 at the "Savoy Hotel", London. Later R model followed using the Norman 3K motor. Then a Saches and the RM4 and 5 being license-built Mobylette models. The range stopped at RM12 in 1969. We have the RM4 on offer finished in charcoal and pearl grey, if not a bit faded! An automatic moped with damping by telescopic forks. The basic package cost 59.1.17s. So a classic little Raleigh Moped supplied with a well researched history, supporting invoices, original Green log book showing SGV992 to be its original registration number, a 1970 showing a license fee of 2/10s (if only) and V5C showing 3 former keepers. A charming piece of British Transport history and vastly becoming very popular and collectable. Delivery arranged.
