Original Raleigh cycle tire pumps like this one have become quite rare and desirable for use on English machines. Bluemels Lightweight pumps of this style with the R-I logo were used on Raleighs, Humbers, Robin Hoods, Triumphs, and a great many other English bicycles of the 1950s and early 1960s.
This one is a very, very rare find. It is in new old stock, unused condition, with only a very few small scratches to show its age. The handle, which is usually shrunk with age on these pumps, is in good condition with some minor shrinkage, but it closes fine. The pump functions well and appears to hold pressure fine.
