Here is a super 'time-warp' Raleigh moped - the famous 'Wisp' model in fiesta blue.
Dating from 1967 (E reg), this lovely thing is bristling with its period accessories. Original saddle & saddle bag, rear view mirror, a Miller tax disc holder, etc, etc.
In the 1960s, Twiggy, the famous model, was pictured riding one of these. The Raleigh Wisp captured the spirit of the 1960s, and broke the mould of moped design by using smaller wheels giving it a more exciting look.
The Raleigh Wisp is a great classic moped - highly desirable, and collectable.
This one has come from a deceased estate, and we are led to believe this is a one owner machine from new. It looks like it hasn't done many miles at all.
It has stood unused for some time, and there are areas of surface rust - but nothing serious, it could be used as-is, or restored over time - please look at the pictures.
The saddle bag has not deteriorated at all - and is in very good condition
It still has the Miller tax disc in place
The engine is free, tyres hold air and have good tread, and there is a spark at the plug cap.
We feel this moped could be back on the road in no time with the minimum of work.
Remember photographs have the habit of making things look better than they are - so please come an view before bidding
Sadly, the V5 has been lost - but we have 2 original tax discs dating from the 1970s, and its manual (see pictures).
Don't miss this opportunity to own a great icon from the swinging sixties
