Hunt’s New Touring Bike: Raleigh Portage 650b

Raleigh Portage 650b Touring

Hunt’s been telling me about this amazing, near-NOS Raleigh Portage 650b Touring Bike he’s recently acquired and I finally got the chance to check it out last night. No camera with me though, sorry. But here’s an Instagram shot at least so you’ll get the idea.

Built with a barely-used, first-gen Deore group, sealed bb/hubs/headest, Reynolds 531 tubing re-branded to Raleigh 555, and an original Blackburn rear rack this rig is ready for camping season. Follow Hunt on Instagram and be sure to check back for some more detailed shots once he’s added his own flair to the bike.

    I must have this bike! Seriously, please contact me if you’re thinking of selling it. I’ll PayPal today. Thanks, Tom

    • I’ll let him know! Although I don’t think the sale will be likely. Hunt had his eye on this beauty for quite some time before finally working out a deal…thanks for the kind words though!
