Raleigh Sports footbike imagined by Peter Hummers

This Fantasy Footbike is based on one of my favorite bicycles – the Nottingham Raleigh Sports, popularly known as the Raleigh 3-speed, a true dyed-in-the-wool classic, perhaps one of the greatest bicycles ever made, if measured in world miles ridden – not to mention sturdiness.
