Flashback to 1976: The Raleigh Grifter helps boys pull models

Share this:

VINTAGE sex can sell anything advert of the day. It’s July 21 1976, The Press Association reports:

Adding a touch of glamour at a press preview of children’s bicycles from Raleigh, is model Cheryl Hersch from Chiswick, who takes to the saddle of the Raleigh Grifter, one of the new range, which was on show at Craven Cottage, the home ground of Fulham Football Club.

Get a push bike and pull a model, kids. (I had one of these bikes in silver. And, true enough, I was soon beating off glamour models with a stick.)
