Just acquired a ladys 1960 Raleigh Superbe Sports Tourist.
But some things do not 'add up', hence this....
The hub date is 1960. It is a 4 speed but no BB oiler. The wheels appear to be SS but there is some rust on the braking area. And an oiler cover on the front hub. They sure do look like SS rims though, with SS spokes. Decals on the gear casing state 'All Steel Bicycle'. It has the old Raleigh brake cables with soldered ends and combined adjusters, and the gear cable guide is a bolt on.
OK, a four speed 'fits in' here. But does the 'All steel bicycle' do the same?
DBU is missing along with the lights, but the dynohub etc. says these have been removed.
Serial number is 4572 AE, which indicates 1960.
Still don't sound right to me though...
Any thoughts anybody??
