Just make sure they look like these. Yes they're alloy.,,,,BD


Concave refers to the "opposite" indention in the spoke surface.

+1. Weinmann Concaves are among my favorite rims ever. They're a sure-footed sport/touring rim if there ever was one.



The only problem is that little puddle that forms down there in the rain and sloshes around incessantly as you ride along.

That and polishing them is excruciatingly difficult. I don't think any of mine are polished?,,,,BD

I like those rims....just have to see how 'available' they are out there in the real world.

Sorry that I was not able to reply earlier as I was out of the country, and thanks to Gran Bois for pointing out the faux-pas with the cable routing. Here are some more pics:

Outstanding. Every Super Course deserves Super Record. I'm kind of surprised the brakes reach those (I assume) 700c rims. Are you using drop bolts? And I would rank Super Course green up there with Molteni orange and Celeste as an all time great bike color.

Thanks! I agree, the colour is very nice on these. What do we call it - emerald green? Not using drop bolts on the brakes, they just fit like a glove!

The only special term I've heard it called is "Weird Green," but I'm sure that's not how it was listed in the Raleigh catlogs of the early 70's Yours is a real beauty, with just enough of the weird blue primer beneath showing to let folks know it's not a repaint. Mine's the same color and I love it.

If I had my saddle/bars set up like that, however, I'd probably take a header every time went to the drops.

Me too!

- And here is another interesting one in bronze green for, believe it or not, about the best price I can find on CL at the moment.
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/bik/4338124654.html

I think it would clean up nicely though.

That's not too ridiculous, Busted Simpleton shift lever and crappy saddle is redeemed by the tires (do they still make those? I must research...)

The precious stickers are even intact, mine were long gone. Maybe 200.00 , but guys who do that with the bars should be duct taped into a chair in the corner and yelled at with pointed fingers. Slight indicator of possible crash with that, but these are tough-ass frames.

Careful - There's probably some guys from this forum riding bum bars like that.

Oh dear Lord, I hope not.

FYI to IKNowURider, I believe those are Schwalbe HS159 tires, still very much available and not expensive. One of my favorites, durable and cushy, but not very light weight.

They're only $225 if the seller knows he has something. $40-$60 is the average flea market price still, at least around here. Haven't seen one in a while, but thankfully they're out there still waiting to be found.,,,,BD

They used to be dirt cheap around here too, BD - but it seems I bought up all the cheap ones.

Actually was checking the Raleigh catalogues for details as I've put mine up on ebay, and the colour is in fact called emerald green...

Or if you're looking for a taller one in San Diego, here's one in brown: https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/bik/4345624082.html. But this seller definitely knows what he's got...

Ahem....almost an entire thread of questions(https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...igh?highlight=) and asking for affirmation without any pics....the thread made my eyes bleed. I'd say you pretty much got what you asked for in that thread.

Thanks Crescent W!
It is one of the reasons I like SC's so well. I think they called the color "coffee' back then, though truly, it's more like the color we associate with bronze sculptures.

It's a beautiful color on a restored bike...the word "coffee" doesn't do it justice.

I'm partial to the 'green'....whatever you want to call it, but only because I had a 70's GP in college in the green.

I like the stitched saddles as well, nice touch.
