Looks great. Depending how much you want it to stand out, you could pick up a pin-striping brush and some white paint and do up the tubes where they meet the lugs. It would really make them stand out...

I know with bare aluminum motorcycle frames I really like S.O.S. pads (they have a cleaning/polishing compound in them) and water. They do a very good job without making them too shiny or polished.

ok, another one to look at, Raleigh SC

Do you think $200 is a fair price for a '69 Super Coarse? It sounds like it is in good shape. The sell is the original owner. He cant ride any longer due to a "disc disease". It is about a 45 min....

I am looking for a bike to ride to work a few days a week. What do you guys think would be a reasonable price to pay if the bike is in pretty good shape?
