I cycled RAGBRAI last year on a c. 1968 Raleigh Lenton Sports 3-speed (Sturmey hub, of course), slightly tricked-out w/inverted “Mary” bars and plastic fenders.I have been riding modified Raleigh 3-speeds since 1986, and cover the canal towpaths and hills in the Delaware River Valley of SE Pennsylvania and NJ.

I’ve got a friend, Mike Dayton, who has a vintage Lenton fixie. Gorgeous old thing. Would like to get him out to Iowa sometime. I’ll be looking for you.
