Restored 1976 Superbe
Reader, Steve, has sent me some photos of his latest project.
“This started out as a 1976 Raleigh Superbe that had been stored in the basement for years by original owner. The Paint was excellent, tires rotted, rims rusted inside & pitted outside. Bought Sun rims & new tires but it just kept going.”
The brakes have been upgraded as well. Dia Copmpe 812 Calipers.
“Saw them had to have them , 80 mm reach they fit the rear of the wheel of the Superbe with 2mm to spare. The cables are Clarks SS cables with lined housing . The combination works really well with no effort.or binding. “
