My Latest Build: Raleigh Super-Course 3-speed Conversion

This one I bought as a whole bike that had been stored for decades. I removed everything, including the paint, and built it up like this:



That is a carefully rubbed-and-polished rattle-can Rust-Oleum paint job, with Woody's Compound Curve Bamboo Fenders, Brooks Flyer saddle, Carradice Barley saddlebag, and Sturmey-Archer AW hub.



It rides beautifully; nice and smooth and stable.



I'll be bringing it out for the "ABCE - All British Cycling Event" in September, and will probably ride it on the Lake Pepin 3-speed Tour next Spring.



For now it's a very pleasant neighborhood cruiser and a perfect ride for Sunday brunch.
