Can anyone help identify this Bike? I could not find a manufacturer stamp or date only the headbadge and Suntour accessories. Thank you.

The badge was used by Raleigh on their Rampar (Ralpar in the UK) range from 1972 until at least the early 1980s.

  • Velobase shows this exact badge about two-thirds of the way down the page and says "1970s".

  • The Headbadge shows the design in use as a seat tube decal from 1972–82.

I found this with a Google image searches for something like "vintage bicycle R head tube badge". I struck lucky just as I was about to give up and post a comment suggesting you do the search.

    Yeah, the hardware bits are identical to my old 72 Raleigh, though I don't remember that badge. – Daniel R Hicks Jan 28 '18 at 14:17
  • And the brakes locate the bike around 1970. – Carel Jan 28 '18 at 18:40
