I remember "Plunk your magic twanger, froggie" as from the Buster Brown show. I do know that it had a couple of iterations before that, however. Andy Devine was Poncho on the Wild Bill Hickok TV program. Tom, all I would have to do to find a three-speed Raleigh would be to go to our shed in the backyard. It is my wife's - she bought it new back in the '50s. I did a semi-restoration on it about five years ago. She hadn't ridden a bicycle in about 30 years and fell of it on her first ride. She hasn't ridden it since. I have, but it's a girl's bike. The gear change chain you mentioned used to be carried by virtually every hardware store in the New England area. I actually kept a spare in our basement. I didn't have a Raleigh - my bike was a James Mercury that was a Raleigh knockoff and used the same gear change components as the Raleigh.
