Is This a Raleigh Super Tourer?
Hi there everyone...since I am building my Raleigh collection...several people suggested that I should seek a Super Tourer...and it got me to thinking about a bike I had previously owned...I tried to determine the model and was unsuccessful...it was before I started posting here. So...here is a picture of it...and several online "experts" had trouble placing it.
When I got it, it was built with a first generation Dura Ace group, including a Crane RD. Not sure that this was original, as the frame was also custom painted by CyclArt, so I am guessing that the Dura Ace group was an after custom painting addition. The only decals were "Raleigh" and "Carlton"...the frame did have fender and rack bosses on the rear. It had double braze ons for water bottle holders on the down tube. Those are the only things I can remember. I have sold the frame, but might have the opportunity to repurchase it...if it is Super Tourer frame...and...I love the colors, so am hoping we find it to be one...and then hoping maybe I can repurchase it.
Heres the picture I have...if more are needed (and, yes, I know that more is better)...let me know...but would love to hear some preliminary opinions.
