1929 Raleigh 23 500cc SV

The montorcycle you see here is a Model 23, which was once raced in Europe during the 20's and 30'. Not much history is known other than that. The restoration was started by the dealer who lost interest. I am now looking to put it back to road spec and get it running. The model 23 had the twin Raleigh down swept exhausts, and was very fast for its day.
