Nice Super Course

Picked this 1978 Super Course from an older British gent who bought it know. Should clean up nice. Wish it was my size.

Looks pretty clean already.

Just be sure to turn that seatpost around.

I had one of those, in the orange color. It was mostly a good bike before it got stolen from the NCSU library bike rack. My concave rims had sharp burrs inside from where the factory trimmed the spokes and apparently ran the coarse grinding wheel against the aluminum where the tube was. Had many mystery flats before I sanded it all down.

Looks to me like "British Gent" was after the "nose up" Brooks Saddle Riding Position (BSRP).

PS: can't see any actual levers on the bar ends! /:0|
