1971 Raleigh Superbe Restoration Project by Basil S.
Three Speed Mania follower Basil S. purchased this Raleigh Superbe at the Brantford show this summer. He is in the process of restoring the bike and has sent some “before” photos. Progress photos and hopefully some text from Basil will follow. I’m posting this using a PC so I’m not sure how to rotate the photos.
BELOW ARE SOME “AFTER” SHOTS ALONG SIDE HIS GIRLFRIENDS 1974 LADIES SUPERBE.
I guess I should backtrack. I think your blog is very informative, and I was a little miffed at the VW comments and “boring” remarks you received and subsequently posted, so I thought I’d send you some fresh meat…Thanks for posting my pictures. If you want MORE, I got at least three Eaton’s gliders that will be rainy day projects. A 1970 and a 74 small frame mens, and a ladies early seventies with a white brooks matress saddle. I love the gliders, because the chrome “Raleigh” fenders, and superbe block pedals came on these models. I wish they had “endrick” rims, though…
