    Raleigh Superbe

    I'm just starting to restore this old girl as a cruiser for my daughter. The Dynohub looks interesting, but the rest seems starightforward

    Wish me luck...I need a wicker basket to hang off the bar.

    Looks like a '73 or a '74.

    Any guess what it's worth? I'm looking at buying one of these. The on in the picture here looks pretty close to the one I'm stalking.

    I think it is a sign of the times and the aging of those who respond to these posts that yo will probably not get a considered response to your question. I could give you my evaluation of an '80's bike because I'm familiar enough with the normal component groups and framesets that I feel confident enough, at 50, to do so. As I have been dipping my toe back in time to the '70's bikes, I see a world of bikes with components and frames that I am unfamiliar with. However, I intend to learn, and I recently saw a black Raleigh 3 spd in my area for 130 that I wish I had acted on. I think that that is the ballpark that you are working in. Although green seems much more appealing.
    Half of the time I fear I may not know what the hell Iím doing; the other half, Iím sure of it.
