Commute in style or join a Tweed Ride!

I am selling my gently-ridden vintage 1976 Raleigh Superbe. This bike is in near-mint condition, with many attractive features and upgrades.

Bike has locking front fork, with key. The headlight is powered by the Dyna-Hub—no batteries required! The modern Planet Bike headlight works as either a continuous or flashing beam and stays lit for a while even when the bike is not in motion.

I upgraded the wheels by re-building with aluminum rims on the original hubs, so you get maximum stopping-power with Kool-Stop brake pads while maintaining the original vintage charm. Continental City Ride tires are puncture-resistant.

The Brooks leather saddle has a theft-resistant leash, and the Sturmey-Archer shifter and three-speed hub are original and fully working.

I am including the basket, modern front and rear lights, bell, pump, and coffee-cup holder. Also included is the ample rear seat-bag along with original front and rear lights for do-it-yourselfers to install, and an extra set of original pedals.

As you can see, I’ve really loved this bike but am ready to pass it along. You will not find another one like this! Asking $500. Message me if interested.
