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.
