    Spiffed up the Super Course

    Man its hard to take pictures of this bike. The green absorbs all light.

    Anyway, added a few intereseting vintage items to my Super Course.

    Vintage Raleigh Sports bag.
    Two water bottle cages.
    Vintage Bluemels? mini fenders. (printed made in G.B.)
    Soubitez front generator light.
    Modern "ping" bell.
    Huret Multito odometer.
    Silca pump.

    Did a 70 mile ride Saturday and the bike was very comfortable and had no mechanical problems. The two water bottles are a must for longer rides. In my bag I had a spare tube, quick stik, a couple wrenches, and a knee brace(just in case).

    Nice bike. It could be just me, but isn't the rear brake housing a little on the short side?

    A little bit, but its original and the rear brake works smooth.

    Sweet! Look forward to seeing her out on the road. Does the fork lamp work? Much drag? If not,
    I have to get one.

    Yeah it works. Pretty good light too. Yes a bit of drag. Its good for the fall when I go out after work, or before work, and you need 20 minutes or so of light. I salvaged this one from a Schwinn Breeze that was put out on trash day. Probably same vintage as my SC.
