The owner is asking $600.00 OBO.

Taking into account the condition, originality, completeness and original accessories, this price may not be too far off….

The ad reads:

I’m selling my RALEIGH Superbe Dawn Tourist from the 1960s.
This is a very rare British bicycle to find and I imagine this to be the only one of it’s kind in the GTA.
It comes complete with original saddle bag, ROD BRAKES, Internal Dynohub (lighting system), 3 speed sturmey archer gear hub, front & rear lights, original raleigh kickstand, full chaincase, rare white raleigh branded pedals, original Brooks b73 leather saddle & rare vintage Lucas “King Of The Road” challis style brass bell!

There are many features that make this bike very unique and collectible, including the front mudflap, full chaincase, hand pump, supplemental battery unit, locking front fork (with orig key!), white hand grips and matching pedals.
Lots of money has been put into preserving and upgrading this bicycle, the parts alone are worth my asking price.

Raleigh DL-1 Tourist

P1180743.JPG

I spent some time on this one yesterday. A Mid to late 70’s Tourist. The previous owner had removed the complete rod and lever brake system and replaced with a simple coaster brake.

P1180744.JPGP1180747.JPGP1180751.JPG

Coaster brake appears to be a Shimano CB-100 from 1975 or so. Rear wheel is a Canadian sized 28″ x 1 1/2″ while the front is a British Westrick rim.

The paint and chrome on this bike is in very good condition.

How A Bicycle Is Made 1945

A documentary from 1945 inside the Raleigh Factory shows how a bicycle is made.

It’s a little corny but after watching you’ll see why these bicycles were “built to last.”

Thanks to Kubiw for sending this to me.

Not Quite Abandoned Raleigh Tourist

A mysteriousl Raleigh Tourist from the mid 70’s that’s been left to the elements. Although branded as a Tourist it lacks the proper rod and lever brakes as well as some other distinguishing features. It has some very nice original accessories including the Raleigh brand headlight as well as a drum brake. A similar bike and story here.

Update. I had left my number on this bike and the owner did call me saying that he intended to fix this one up.
