Property of a deceased's estate c.1965 Raleigh 49cc RM6 Runabout Moped Project Frame no. to be advised Engine no. to be advised
Britain's best-known and longest-surviving bicycle maker, Raleigh also manufactured motorcycles from 1899 to 1905 and from 1919 to 1933. More recently, the Nottingham company offered a range of mopeds plus a scooter in the late 1950s/1960s, the majority of the moped range being built-under-license Motobécane Mobylettes. The first of the latter was the RM4 Automatic, introduced in 1961, while Raleigh first applied the 'Runabout' name to the RM6, which was built in various versions from May 1963 until February 1971 when production of all Raleigh mopeds ceased. Offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed, this RM6 carries a tax disc that expired in April 1970, which is almost certainly when it was last used. There are no documents with this Lot.
