An Auction Picker on a cable show, recently came across a Vintage Raleigh BMX bike in a home owner’s garage. The homeowner was obviously unaware of the very collectible Vintage Raleigh BMX. In fact, many of these Vintage bikes are sitting in garages, sheds, basements, collecting dust.
Do you have your eye on a Vintage Raleigh BMX? First make sure that the bike is truly a vintage item. Vintage is applied to certain type of collectible bike. In terms of definition, vintage is any item that is at least twenty years old. Any item that is more than a century old is an antique. Consequently, as each decade passes, more vintage bikes are created. Once a bike hits the century it is no longer vintage, but a certifiable antique.
