Take the fugly billboard to the wire wheel on a bench grinder or drill and burn the paint off, much less offensive.

Super Courses are great bikes. I enjoy my '73 and it did me well on the Tweed Ride we did late last year...





Somebody previous to my ownership got a little tired of all the heavy components that came with the bike and did a great job with some upgrades. Eventually I'll pull the slightly unwieldy bars off and replace with some north road style and reverse brake levers.

I sold the Super Course this morning to a nice local couple for the wife to ride. I hope they enjoy it as much as we did.
