I think Clubman is correct re the saddles in Canada.
Both of my Superbes came with a vinyl saddle.
I did pick up a nice brooks B33 at the bike show last week,

One of the vendors is a Pashley dealer and his customers often
don't want this saddle and swap them out on purchase.

Sweet ride.
I've got a Glider with the same set up.
Duomatic/coaster on the back and single caliper up front.

The bars are currently uprights.
Yes, you can lock up the rear wheel and "lay a patch" as
we used to say.

Here in Canada we had a special CCM Centenial Duomatic bike in 1967.

I've only seen them in this copper colour.
My understanding is that the hubs are great but the axle nuts
can fail and are hard to replace.

All 3 of my Duomatics were harvested from clapped out CCM Centennials or the kids chopper-style model aptly named Duomatic. The junior bike had 28 spoke hubs, larger had 36. The hub axles are 10 mm diameter with a metric thread and are really hard to find, although I was able to source a pair from a guy who may or may not have more.

Another Canadian opinion on Brooks

As removed from 1979 DL1. Replaced with an 90s NOS B66.
saddles. Never have seen any 60s or 70s Raleighs with B66 and almost always with the black vinyl mattress style. The only exception were the B66 on the 79 DL1 and a Wrights leather saddle on a made in England Supercycle.

Yesterdays ride was a solo trip through "Sherwood Forest" ( Lynn River Rail Trail)on the nearly fifty year old, made in England, 1971 Robin Hood "Sports Model" 3 speed. Turned around in Simcoe-on-the-Lynn and headed back to the shores of Dover. The faint click-click-click of the Sturmey Archer hub provided background music. Other than the Garmin and the SPD pedals looks quite vintage. I have swapped in my apple green B17 and am looking for some nice green bar tape to match. The Honey B67 I purchased for the RH now lives on the Royal Nord. Sorry about the phone quality pictures, forgot to pick up a camera on my way out.

Should I?

I wasn't really in the market for another one right now as I just bought a '77 Raleigh LTD-3 a few weeks ago to refurbish but this Royal Scot was recently listed locally on FB. It has the tall frame, although not quite tall enough for my 6' 1-1/2" but I can make it work. He's asking a bit more than I paid for thr LTD but I bought the LTD pretty cheap and I'm hoping I can talk him down a bit. From the picture he posted of the rear hub I'll say it's a 1970. I sent him a message to see if it's still available and to see if he had a picture of the drive side. Looks rough and I wouldn't do a repaint just clean it up well and clear coat it to preserve it then do an overhaul on all the mechanicals, I like the "rustic" look on this one. I plan to make some changes to the LTD but this one would remain pretty much original except for the seatpost and stem I'd need to make it fit me. Sure wish these had been made with a taller frame but......

This Royal Scot is 1963-1965. I think there's enough adjustment in the seat post and stem of a 23" Raleigh to accommodate a 6'1" rider. If not, stems with more length and or more reach are available.

If they're the same as my '77 LTD-3 then not quite enough stem and seat post for this 6' 1-1/2" rider but no problem I already have a longer stem in the same style and seat post. A '63 - '65 you say? Better yet! Thanks for the info. I''m 99.99% it's going to "follow" me home. The '77 is going to get changed around a bit but this one will remain pretty much original except for the stem and seat post....... and that HUGE saddle. Fortunately I have a period correct saddle too.

Here's the rear hub, do you think it's been replaced at some point? I asked for pics of the drive side of the bike but the seller is out of town until tomorrow evening.

I think the hub/rear wheel was changed at some point. The 2 point chain guard, the grips, the pedals, the white fluted cable casings, the small rear reflector are all early 60s features.

That's good info to know. Will the serial number tell me anything? I have a SN breakdown sheet but it is from the 70's and the examples it gives start at 1973 so I don't know if it is applicable. If it's in any kind of salvageable shape at all it's coming home with me regardless of the year but it would be very cool if it was that much older. Ir would be even cooler though if it had it's original rear wheel but most people would never notice. If it is truly a '63-'65, and I'm not doubting you one bit, then that guarantees it staying as original as possible.

The niece finally got her bike after a couple of weeks of missed connections. She had gone for a test ride and said it slips when pedaling so I adjusted the shift cable but further test rides indicated slipping in low and middle gears so I pulled the rear hub apart to find the innards lightly coated with a skim of rust-colored pudding. Old lube in a dried-out hub. I was worried about broken pawl springs but nothing was broken so I soaked everything, reassembled and lubed and it worked fine so I delivered it to the happy new owner. Free bike, free lock and free helmet; all she has to do is ride it.

I'm pretty sure things like the reflector pedals and the bigger rear reflector that happened in the late 60s were meant to satisfy US regulations. I suppose it's possible that this bike was made with older components and imported anyway. Also, somebody here pointed out a later Canadian model that still used the old style 2 point chainguard. In any case, this bike is more like a mid 60s style than 70s.

I like that colour.
I've been riding my Rodin Hood Bitsa everyday this summer to work.
Last week a car turned in front of me and I locked up the rear wheel.
On a positive note the Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show was quite a success.
I didn't take any photos....

Found pics of this 1971 a few minutes ago, pretty much the same as the one I'm going to look at except for the reflector pedals and much better condition.

Looks like you're right. 1970, but with the 2 point chainguard. Here's my '64. There are a few differences. The stamped mudguard stays and the overbearing seat tube transfer.

I like that the '70 isn't much different from the earlier models., they must have figured if it ain't broke why fix it........ wish it had that cool seat tube decal like your '64 though.

UPDATE: Got some better pictures from the seller, it is a LOT worse than it looked in the pics they posted in the ad so I politely declined. No decals left whatsoever, front half of the rear fender bent up and heavy rust everywhere. It has clearly been laying on the weeds for several years.

It may have been mentioned before, I have my Grandad's Nottingham built Superbe, which he bought new in Ottawa around 1975-6. It had a vinyl Brooks seat from new, which I've confirmed with him, as he never made any changes to the bike while he had it. I have since fitted a B66, however.

I wouldn't put a lot of work into a bike like that either. On the other hand, a 50s Raleigh , Rudge or Birmingham basket case is always welcome.

Q-?
Was Royal Scot a Raleigh sub brand?
I.e. sold through hardware stores, dept stores etc?

Yes, a "lower grade" Raleigh but I'm not sure what outlets sold them. I believe they were more common out East than here in the Midwest. I had high hopes since this was a 23 inch but it was just too far gone and too new to make it worth it. If it had been out on the curb and I drove past I'm sure I would have stopped but I'm inclined to think I still would have left it there.
