Show us your Raleigh Super Course!
 
These great old Raleigh Super Courses seem to have a strong following here in C&V – and deservedly so, IMHO, since they’re so well-mannered, and their classic style just seems to define the genre. They are also among the most adaptable of bikes for sport/utility or touring, as has been illustrated here, on more than one occasion.

The Super Courses were high enough the Raleigh hierarchy as to be very well regarded, yet common enough so that many of us can aspire to actually owning one.

So, I though it was about time for a "show us your SC" thread. Here is your opportunity to post yours!

'72 SC, Suntour V- GT Luxe rear derailleur, SL frt, ratcheting Power Shifters and (half-wrap Tressostar tape... My first stab at wheel building, and it rolls OK.

I need to take better pics, but here is my '74 SC MKII - my favorite ride in my humble collection. I believe it to be all orginial (except a previous owner added turkey wings) other than the saddle...( I have a B17 on the way from the auction site...I thought a B-17 Narrow would be, um...too narrow for me...:)

The brakes are the originals Weinmanns, the rest is Shimano 600 Arabesque. Really shifts and rides great.

Hi ohjonnybegoode !
Your collection can't be TOO humble if it includes that MKII. (Gotta lose the Turkey wings though!):)

This one is a '71 or '72. I call it a '71 for argument's sake.

I'm using the upright bars now, as it's a commuter/errand bike for me now.

The ride quality is far beyond my expectations. I'm using Panaracer Pasela tires, which are fantastic.

Here's mine, a '73, though sadly she's since moved to California. Viscount cranks, Suntour Vx RD, Titlist FD, GB bars.

I posted this in a separate thread but in case some here missed it I will throw it in. I traded it in when new but at least owned one - it was a 1978 model. Here it is with just a few miles on it. Managed to install some Campagnolo Record components and the Sugino crank set before realizing that I was aspiring towards something more expensive. I should have kept it but limited finances back then forced me to trade it in on something Italian.

Beauty! I just picked up the same. I look forward to taking it for a spin soon. This thread has me excited!

I built this little single speed '74 MK II for my wife. She never liked it, so I sold the frame and fork at a bike swap for $35. It was recently on eBay, nicely built up as a fixed gear, with a BIN price of $600. I don't know if it sold. I didn't bother to look.

Bad pic but rode this around town fixed for a couple of years. It was $25 at a garage sale but missing most of the original components. Very stable bike...a treat to ride with hands off the bars. A '76 I believe.

OMG - a Super Course Mixtie Fixtie ^.
Some hipster probably bid their first born for it.
(This straight MkII recently sold on ebay for $400... )

I'd say it's loaded - How on earth did you load that truck on your pannier?

(very cool touring rig BTW.)

USAZorro 03-16-10 07:03 PM

Here's mine, from the post-chrome era.

That old truck is like an old dog that always wants to come along. Here it is crammed into the pannier of my Superbe.

Here's my 73' SC that I bought new when I was 14. :p Little did I know that I would ride it for a couple of years, then pretty much let it sit for another 34 years before riding it again. LOL I got the bug last year about this time and drug the ole' SC out of storage, tore it down, re-greased all the bearings, put some new tires on, and oiled the stock Brooks B-17 narrow seat, and off I went. It still has original Weinmann brakes, Simplex derailleurs, cranks, etc, even the original vinyl handlebar tape. :D Put almost 2000 miles on it since last spring.
