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.

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.
