Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


1969 Raleigh Catalogue

02Note that someone has written the price of $74.95 on the page, under the Superbe. A quick check of the inflation calculator reveals that this same purchase would cost $590.00 in 2013. I don’t think that you could find anything comparable today for that amount, taking into account the bike came with a leather saddle, a pump, a rack, a Dynohub generator and front and rear lights.

    That sounds about right. I spent close to that on my last city bike that is similarly equipped. FWIW I own a 1972 Superbe and you would have to give me a lot more than $590 to part with it!

    • A nice Superbe will go for $200.00-$350.00 here in Toronto.

    In any case never I will give $590 dollars for your bike. I do not want to disappoint you but come down from your pedestal friend. Your piece of metal is worth maximum $250 New Old Stock. that’s all… Sorry man.

    • It’s not my bike. So I’m not disappointed. The point was to show you what the bike really cost back in 1969.
