Except for the steel Raleigh's, all the new versions are weird and hideous looking. Guess that's why I come here...

I've learned that the secret to making modern bikes look less like BMXers is to manipulate the angles when photographing, and don't get too close to the subject...

Now that is a HUGE transformation! It is most offensive that they even call the bike by the same name!

The boom era Super Course TT was considered a club racer, similar to the Peugeot PA10 and Gitane Interclub, though having owned one, I fully appreciate your point of view.

That was my own first good bike store bike. I remember fondling the catalog for several moths until I had my layaway paid off and could take it home. Wasn't a real touring bike, however. Not with sidepull brakes and minimal rack mounts.

I threw it in, because it's the only bike I know of still in production that's almost identical to it's original counterpart from over 50 years ago.
