    Picked this up today. I believe it is totally original. Needs just a little cleaning. Not sure when made 1965? Serial # U610942 Esso promotional bike is what I hear.

    Early AMF Renegade. These bikes were also in the back of comic books of the time as prize give aways.

    Hey PetesPonies, at this time I am not interested in selling my Esso bike. I have had a few other inquiries. It is the first one I have seen in person. Thanks, Ray

    It's looking real good. Have you tried "raleighron" You would think with all the odd new decals of Ebay the fork trim would be there. I had a member express interest on my bike. We could not agree on a price and I am glad. My wife likes the bike more than I do.

    I have the correct piece I believe. But the chrome isn't good enough to use. Mine is probably similar to yours extra one in condition. I may nickel it, or send it out . . just thought I could find one somewhere. But so far, no go. Lots of trim, but not the right one, not the right dimensions. I'll have to do the fork decal myself. That's a great pic.
