Updated '73 Raleigh SuperCourse
 
I've put around 1000 miles on this guy between my house and the office. I just got from fenders from Velo-Orange on there yesterday. Unfortunately, I never got used to the original brake levers so swapped them out for a new pair of Tekro's with matching brakes. It's a definite upgrade to my big clyde self going down the one man-made bridge we have and being able to stop. The chrome fenders definitely set it off nicely, my little isolation project.

A 73 is worth about $75 to $200 and more depending on the lack of rust.

IMHO, on something you plan to continue riding, the brake upgrade was a really SMART thing to do.

Brooks Cambium C17 in Natural got the matching bar tape as well!

No doubt, hate to not keep it original, but it stops so perfectly now! I

rode last night with the dynamo light on, and with the quarantine, it was so smooth a quiet that I could only hear the sound of the tires on the asphalt. Crazy smooth bike, and crazy quiet with the friction shifters.
