It looks great! How is the paint in person? I think it might be hard to get $260 for it but if you kept the saddle (I'm assuming that is where the money is) and adjusted accordingly I think it would...

I dont know all the options for bottom brackets but I do know there is a Phil Wood setup that works with the Raleigh threading. They are a little spendy but seem to be really high quality. I think...

I know with bare aluminum motorcycle frames I really like S.O.S. pads (they have a cleaning/polishing compound in them) and water. They do a very good job without making them too shiny or polished.

ok, another one to look at, Raleigh SC

Do you think $200 is a fair price for a '69 Super Coarse? It sounds like it is in good shape. The sell is the original owner. He cant ride any longer due to a "disc disease". It is about a 45 min....
