Page 153. 1966 Raleigh Runabout Moped. MOT. VGC

1966 Raleigh Runabout RM6

Very good all round running condition.

V5C. New MOT & Tax

Registration ADY 864D

I bought this charming little Raleigh from a friend 5 years ago because I had fond memories of owning one in the early seventies (though not such fond memories of frequently breaking down on it during my 17 mile commute through the Devon countryside).

This one is not in concours condition. But it’s excellent for an original unrestored example.

It starts easily and runs well. The leg-shields give it more of a scooter appearance. I hope the photos give you a good idea of its condition. Please email or phone me if you have any questions.

IS THIS YOUR LIFE?

As the above ad points out, why spend your life waiting at bus stops, when ‘it could so easily be this?’

Even the bus in the picture is advertising the Raleigh Moped.

Here are a few more adverts from Power & Pedal magazine. Actually they are for the earlier RM4 Raleigh moped, but I like the period scenes.

VEHICLE CONDITION:Vintage vehicles are wonderful beasts

– but each has an individual personality and they sometimes have bad days just like you and me.
You will need basic mechanical skills (or a local mechanic) to use one on a regular basis.

Two-strokes invariably need basic servicing before starting them, if they’ve been left to stand for more than 3 weeks or so.

These are rare vehicles whose values are not necessarily based on running order.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE ABOVE, PLEASE DO NOT BID.
