Raleigh Roadster 3 Speed

Not too sure what this bike is…..

A Raleigh Roadster with lever brakes and a caliper up front, drum on the back.

Hipster Raleigh Superbe

A current ad on Kijiji, Toronto:

“Get noticed on your racing green vintage Raleigh.
Pretend you know your stuff when a hot guy/girl asks about it and you answer with aloof indifference: “Whatevs… it’s a 3 speed, 1977 Raleigh Superbe in great shape with all original parts including British made Sturmey Archer transmission in the wheel hub.”
It even has a rack on the back to hold artisanal jams, free range Chanterelles, or an ironic box of moustache grooming supplies.
It has foot powered lights but the bulbs (will need to replaced for the lights to work).
I’d keep it but I’m not cool enough to pull it off.
$195.”
