This one is reasonably priced at $150.00 on Kijiji Toronto. It appears complete and in good condition and a large frame. It has the self adjusting brakes which would make it a 1973-1974 model.
I locked up my Raleigh Superbe last week while I had some lunch and when I came out found a Raleigh clone parked beside it.
A modern Simcoe bicycle clearly trying to duplicate the original.
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”
This ad for a 1962 Raleigh Superbe is interesting as it suggests that the Dynohub can be put to use to provide lighting in a fall-out shelter…
This year’s show is scheduled for July 24th at Trinity Bellwoods Park here in Toronto.
Keep posted for details.

2)pic 050) Around 40 hours were spent to restore this. We bought all the new parts at “Vintage Velo” in Paris, Ont. We replaced the chain, 22T rear sprocket, cables, and new Schalwbe tires and tubes. this cost about $150.00 inc. tax. NOTHING was repainted. All ‘patina” was left as found, I just compounded all the painted surfaces, polished all the rust off the pitted chrome, and sanded every spoke till they shined.
Now that fall has arrived here in Canada it’s time to think about putting the bikes away. I’m not an all season rider. These three 3 speeds are my everyday bikes with the Canadian built Superbe seeing the most action. I’ve probably spent the most money on the Superbe over the years from initial purchase @ $160.00 to adding new tires/chain/pedals/pump/brake pads etc.
The vintage saddle bag was $10.00 and the vintage Brooks saddle $80.00.
I like to add some oil to the hub and pump up the tires before they’re retired for the season.
Also I leave the shifter in the 3rd position to take the tension off the indicator chain.
The bikes are hung in the garage and I will occasionally go out and give the back wheel a spin and run through the gears just to circulate the oil.
Also, a little Proofide can be applied to the saddle(s).
I did manage to sell a bike at the show. This 1953 Humphrey (CCM) found a good home and on the plus side, I didn’t buy a bike!
Another tall Superbe that may be for sale tomorrow at the Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show.
