    Full, color 1962 Raleigh catalog now on The Headbadge



    http://www.kurtkaminer.com/TH_raleigh_cat_us62.html

    It's nice to see this one in color, for a change.

    Once again, endless thanks to redneckwes for the scans of this catalog. I never know what he'll dig up next!

    -Kurt

    Wow, who knew the Superbe was good for providing emergency lighting in a fallout shelter? I guess I need one of those now, too.

    That blurb is surely a sign of the times, but... the dynohub is mounted on the front wheel. I don't see how the bike would be much use for lighting my butt in a thermonuclear war without extensive modification, a small velodrome or rollers.

    Love the comment about the Deluxe: "Most imitated in the world"....probably because all the imitations were also made by raleigh!

    Kurt: your site is always interesting - thanks for keeping it fresh.

    I've got some other fun stuff I need to talk Kurt into hosting, like a couple of Bottecchia catalogs.

    The last two bikes on my list are a 50's Lenton Grand Prix and a '64 Raleigh Record.
