    Looks like it is from the 1972-1973 era. Reynolds 531 main tubes for the frame.

    Nice find.
    Laterally stiff yet vertically compliant.

    I get dizzy looking at these pics. Makes me appreciate the white garage door backgrounds.

    Should make a really nice bike once all cleaned up. Will require extensive cleaning. Keep away from steel wool as it will remove rust and chrome, it doesn't know the difference. Chrome plating on bicycles is really thin, its not like a bumper on an old car.

    As is it has very little value as it is a project. People looking for projects (like me) don't pay much. Most buyers want a ready to ride, clean, bike. So if you have the time and tools to rebuild it, it could have some good value.

    Your Supercourse is likely from 1973. This is the year the Block style Raleigh lettering superceded the sphagetti style lettering on the down tube. In '74, the Supercourse was superseded by the Supercourse MKII, which had a two tone paint scheme.
