    1985 Raleigh USA Super Course

    Took the '85 to one of the local bike shops today to get the final finishing touch for it: An NOS Silca Imperio pump. Also mounted a pair of NOS MKS Sylvan track pedals and crankarm dustcaps since the last photo I took of it.



    Enjoy!

    P.S. to Duane041: Remember those derailers?

    Take care,

    -Kurt

    Schnazzy!! I like it! (I'm partial, of course, as I happen to have one, too)
    And that Suntour stuff looks vaguely familiar

    I noticed yours doesn't have those weird Aero Gran Compe brakes with the eccentric mount brake shoes. Y'know, these things

    It had the A300G brake calipers (I still have them as well), but I found that the front caliper didn't have enough reach to contact the rim with the replacement fork. I figured I'd do myself a favor by eliminating the infernal brake pad replacment problem by using a pair of nice Dia-Compe 400s I had on hand.

    Take care,
