On offer is this ORIGINAL WW2 RAF Contract Raleigh made WAAF's bicycle.We had a call last month re some WW2 items from the Son of the ex WAAF who's Mother had unfortunately passed away.

The bicycle was found in the lady's outhouse and obviously had been used to go home from the local base she was stationed at.This was RAF EAST KIRKBY and around 15 miles from our unit.The Bicycle has been left just as found apart from a light clean and the fact we have replaced two tyres and the inner tubes because those on it were completely flat and perished,also one pedal bolt which was missing... The outhouse was completely dry so the surface rust is not to bad considering its been in there for around 65 years.The black finish is the original as are the remains of the white stripe on the frame and the mudguard end,Marked "all steel "cycle with "RAF" and contract number 150309 deeply struck into the frame when manufactured.Also this has the lady's name "VAL 633," on the rear mudguard with the latter being the last three digits of her service number. Rear frame also present for panniers which originally had RAF Backpacks on. The original light brackets are also present and again had cycle blackout lamps on at one time.The Leather saddle is the Wartime original also....We had contemplated complete restoration and a respray but this would take away the name "VAL 633" and also the stripes etc,loosing its character and its History..... Hence its been completely left and it even has its original repair label....Needs a service with brake block adjusting etc then its perfectly good to use.An amazing item for the purist WAAF reenactor to use at events or as a display in a museum/Collection and 40's weekends....Original WW2 RAF Cycles rarely turn up & those that do are nearly always renovated...Note.The Photo is not included in the auction as I have other items of this WAAF's to sell at a later date.
