1975 Raleigh Super Course Mk. II Mixte

21.5 inch. Bought it from a cousin (original owner) but it was not the right bike for my wife. Original components are Weinmann brakes, Nervar cotterless cranks and Huret front derailleur. The rest was replaced with mostly junk a couple of years back when she thought her daughter would want it.

Good news: the frame has no dents, rust, or other damage and is in proper alignment. The paint has been scuffed up through use, see photos. I figure the best case is to sell as frame, possibly with the Nervar in place. Advice and counsel welcome, thanks y'all.

This is from a country boy; but I would ride it to a coffee shop near NYU and park it with a for sale sign including contact information (after locking it securely). I would do this 3 or 4 times and if it doesn't sell, I'll take it off your hands if you pay shipping

FYI: Those Nervar cotterless cranks had a tendency to let loose at the swaged joint. IMO, don't stand and pedal hard up a steep hill.

I would sell as is: a functioning bike. Not worth parting out. Desirable mixte frame. Price depends on your area....around here, 200 seems fair.

Good tip!

Many of the used ones encountered have the spider slightly out of registration in relation to the arm. And it is always in the same clockwise direction...

Another possible problem with them is that there was a batch Peyrard let out of the factory ~1973-74 where the broaches in the arms were improperly cut such that the engagement with the spindle taper was not correct. This was only one batch - a quality control problem and not a design weakness.

Thanks, all. It's gone to a new owner who seems thrilled with it, for a fair price. I'll kind of miss it but it's better that it'll be ridden.
