Another Raleigh Superbe

This one appeared on Kijiji Hamilton today. Owner is asking $565.00….

It does have a factory installed battery pack option that I’ve not seen before as well as the Dynohub.

    I’m seriously starting to wonder about asking prices on bikes nowadays. I just finished restoring a completely original ’69 Sprint (S-5 hub) that’s in about 95% as good a condition as these pictures, and I figure the bike is worth about $200.00. Am I underpricing my work (no, its not for sale, first 23″ frame I’ve found in years), or are other sellers just irrational?

    • I have to agree with you. I would price this one @ $250-$325.00 considering the condition and accessories.I seriously doubt the seller will get anything close to the asking price.

      • I think the only “leg up” this seller would have is if the battery pack is working. A non-functioning unit is basically dead weight, and I don’t know if they would be repairable or worth repairing. And it seems like non-functioning units are more common than functioning units. I can see someone who’s really into having a working battery pack take a bite. For anyone else, it’s so much easier to just get a modern retro-looking light with a capacitor for the standlight.

  2. Wow, yes at that price you’d think the seller would spend a bit of honorable time and actually polish the chrome!!
