1934 Raleigh Safety Seven Pictures

imageimageimageimage

The Raleigh Safety Seven, along with the Morgan, JMB, BSA and Coventry Victor were Cyclecars. Technically motorcycles, they only had to pay half the road tax of a car. They competed in the sidecar market. This Raleigh was found in Florida as a derelict chassis and restored to new condition here in Canada. It is one of two in North America, and only a handful in the UK. Despite being a solid seller and a number of competition successes, it fell victim within three years to a Raleigh corporate decision to discontinue all motorized vehicles (motorbikes and cars) and concentrate solely on bicycles.

Many thanks to Peter Svilans for these pictures.

    For your info. Picture number 4 is a treasured family photo. I am the baby in his Mum’s arms. Mum is sitting in the front seat and my 3 older siblings are crowded onto whatever seating was at the back. I was born in March 1946 and was clearly very young when my Dad took the picture, so the picture was taken sometime in early 1946. It was taken (so I have been told) outside our then home in Cuckoo Lane, Gateacre Liverpool. My parents were from London ant the car was used a couple of times to take the family to and from relatives down south. Must have been an epic drive
